The other day we had a conversation. It went a little like this:
Me: “Do you feel like you do too much?”
Peter: “No. I feel like I do just enough. You?”
Me: “Me too.”
He went on to tell me that I do all the hard stuff, and I was thinking that he does all the hard stuff. I’m grateful that after 8 years of marriage and 3 kids neither one of us feels too overwhelmed with our current division of labor.
Our marriage is far from perfect, but I think we’ve come a long way in 8 years. Even though we disagree on things (a lot), we still make a good team and laugh together (a lot). 8 years worth of inside jokes? Awesome.
