I was told I must be guilty of something due to the tone in my voice and my request for a kiss was denied with the notion that there would be "no guilt kissing" going on that evening.
I knew what my husband was talking about. That feeling you have when you've done something you shouldn't have and you seek for affection from your spouse in hopes that they will overlook what you've done! Yep, I know that feeling.
But in this case, I really couldn't think of anything I was guilty of. So I made him expand.
His response was that I was guilty of being "too expensive".
Of course he was just kidding! But he has a valid point.
I was much less expensive when we both worked and both brought home a salary and we had not kids to spend our money on. It was just us and we had TWO incomes!
Even if you are a two income family, just adding the stress of these other little people to the outcome of that income is no joke.
I'm certain you are also guilty of being "too expensive"! All of you! Just like me!
Some nights we lay in bed and have our little pillow talk and it's just us reminiscing about how we used to be before we had kids. Those were good days.
But our kids are awesome and we would never trade our kids to go back there.
It's just a good thing we have enough love in our house every day to pick up where the money ends.
And I'll tell you something. That love is so much richer than any of the money we ever had or ever will have.
