Being A Kid In Your Marriage

Every parent of a 2-year old knows what it’s like to sing the same song a million times over and over.

Yes, we get stuck in our grooves, those developmental places. Currently Jackson’s song is ‘I Love You, You Love Me.’

We have sang it so many times together. So I started writing my own lyrics for it.

Yes you did, and Jack reacts to that.

Yeah, he’ll say, “Daddy, that’s not how it goes.”

He get’s so upset. The funny thing is that I can see my own behavior because sometimes when I want so badly for you to share something with me, you join in and bring a different thing then I would’ve brought and I get critical about it.

Exactly, so just as in parenting, marriage requires a spirit of openess and playfulness.
