COT: In a book by Brene Brown, she tells a story about a time when she traveled a lot and her husband was at home many weekends alone handling the kids. One weekend while she was home, the got in a big fight and her husband said weekends were a lot easier when she wasn’t home. After the dust settled, they talked about that, and it turned out that when they were both home, they both had expectations for getting something (work, chores, whatever) done whereas when it was just him, he had no expectations for the weekend because he knew his full attention would be on handling the kids. I learned from that story and now my wife and I talk each Friday about what we each need from the weekend. Maybe it’s a family outing, or some alone time, or space to catch up on work, or whatever and we work together to ensure all the needs of the family are met that weekend. I’m sure it’s saved us from meeting fights and a lot of frustration!
