Oh, that must be frustrating! I guess no matter what our significant others are like there will be drawbacks. My husband could use a bit more of that babyness. He tries way too hard to be grownup. I would hate the travelling too. My husband tries really hard not to have to travel. Of course that's because he thinks I can't handle things adequately while he's gone. This despite the fact that he did have to travel several times, and the world didn't fall apart. Things may not have been done as he would have done them, but they did get done.
Of course the honest thing for me to admit is that as I was sitting feeling the waves of disapproval and feeling lonely, he was probably sitting there feeling pretty lonely too. Thinking why on earth couldn't I have married someone who is a grown woman and able to do things as she should so that I don't have to carry the whole burden on myself.
Oh the loneliness we heap on those we're closest to. I think I'll go sympathize with him. And he of course will have no idea why I'm suddenly feeling sympathetic towards him and will wonder what sort of lunatic he married. (yet again) Grin.
Did you ever notice that the things that annoy us most about our mates are the flip side of the things we most like about them? Is your husband by any chance endearingly vulnerable in addition to annoyingly babyish?
