I must confess…if only my partner would…
Now, how’s THIS for a loaded prompt?
Given the stakes, will honesty truly prevail today?
I’m sure you could complete this sentence in multiple ways – I know I can – for both good or bad.
For instance, last year I shared an open letter to my husband, listing a few of the little things that he did that caused me great angst. For some strange reason, I never did get a reply (or crystal or a watch for that matter…)
So, it’s not all bad when you come to think of it.
But it’s understandable that such a prompt could invite complaints or revelations of a less than flattering nature for the partner in question.
I wanted to share a few more truths about my husband today for #imustconfess, both positive and negative. So here goes:
If only my partner would…
- be less hard on himself
- relax when out and about with the kids
- cook a little more (because I hate it and am completely crap at it!)
- put his shoes and socks away
- be a little less right all the time!
In the spirit of fairness, I invited Nathan to respond while also giving him the chance to answer the same prompt about me. I was even going to video it.
But we ran out of time. And, to be honest, I was too lazy enjoying the spoils of my mother’s day haul to be bothered filming a video…
Which reminds me, I received some of the most thoughtful gifts ever from my family yesterday.
Including a novel journal of Anne of Green Gables, where the lines of each page are actually made up of text from the book (I almost can’t bear the thought of writing in it!).
And a funky organiser to take along to client meetings, complete with a voucher for me to invest in my business, which excited me no end!
My first thought on receiving these? If only my partner would stop reading my mind!
Honestly, I couldn’t have asked for anything more. So, Nathan, I think I’ll keep you (even if it’s freaky just how good you are at reading my inner-most thoughts…!)
How would you complete the sentence, “if only my partner would…?”
