Men are just dumb different than women. This was illustrated in a whole new way to me last weekend. I was putting my kids to bed and I had read about how important it is to make sure your kids know that you love them unconditionally. With this in mind, one night I stroked my daughter's cheek and said in a soft voice, "Honey, I want you to know that I will always love you, no matter what. Even when I'm mad or sad, or even when I'm working. I always love you and NOTHING will change that."
My daughter got this huge smile on her face and just basked in the glory of my unconditional love. It was a very tender moment and I swear I had never seen her look so happy.
When went into my son's room, things got interesting. I said the exact same thing to him, and I was expecting a similar response. Instead, he got this sort of naughty grin on his face and said, "But Mommy, would you love me even if I pooped on your face?"
He giggled hysterically and as I searched for the proper response to that question, he continued to give me poop scenarios. "But would you love me if I pooped in the dog bowl? If I pooped on the kitchen table?" You get the picture. He was really getting a kick out of himself and when I left his room that night he was still laughing.
So the next time your husband forgets to tell you he loves you, just remember what he was like as a little boy. I guess they just don't have the same sentimental needs as we do, and I think I can live with it, now that I am reminded about the true nature of men. They really are weird.
