My husband and I have worked for years on our communication skills because they are, um, sub-optimal. And honestly, they are so much better than they used to be. I am the queen of wanting to talk about everything right in the moment, and he is the king of let’s never talk and then after 6 months of not talking about serious stuff, I’ll tell you the 800 things that have been bothering me for the past 180 days. It isn’t always pretty.

It seems that what we have here is a failure to communicate. I say one thing, and I am not one for mincing words, and he hears something completely different. It is as though we are speaking two different languages. And truly, I’m starting to think we might be. Obviously, I’m speaking sane English and he is hearing something completely different. There’s just no other possibility.
And before you think I’m ragging on my husband, please know that he is sitting next to me telling me what he hears when I say things. Hell, he suggested half of the things I’m about to tell you here. We are nothing if not great at making fun of ourselves.

So without further ado, the top 10 best she said/he heard moments of pregnancy. So far …
