I originally got this post idea from Ashley @ The Shine Project. I found it fascinating to read her relationship quirks & knew I had to do my own version of this blog post. Thanks Ashley for the brilliant idea!
I don't know about you & your S.O. (significant other), but C & I have some pretty odd quirks.
- Every time we come home together (i.e. after dinner out) we quietly tip toe upstairs and spy on our dog Brutus. 9 times out of 10 Brutus is sleeping all cuddled up in a blanket somewhere. C & I will just stand there for a minute or so whispering "He's so cute" to one another. I'm sure if someone else saw us doing this they'd think we're nuts.
- We are constantly making up stupid songs & singing them to each other. It's ridiculous. And me teaching Kindergarten doesn't help the matter. I come home singing some silly song I taught my kids at school & then it gets stuck in C's head & we're both signing it.
- We negotiate everything! And I mean everything. "Okay, I'll walk the dogs, but can you take out the trash?"
- Whenever I get upset about something, C calms me down by making me take deep breaths. He won't give up until I cave & take those darn deep breaths. I hate him for it in the moment, but then after it works & calms me down, I am grateful.
Every relationship is different. Beautiful in it's own way. What are your relationship quirks?
