Have you heard a mom say that to their little kid when they are whining or otherwise ineffectively communicating? I've heard a LOT of mom's say that. And I anticipate saying that to my kids as well.
I feel like saying that to myself and to my husband lately.
Why is it that when something is going wrong in a relationship, it is far easier to give the silent treatment rather than to communicate the issue and resolve it quickly?
Grunts and two word answers do not count as communicating.
And remaining silent instead of expressing myself does not count either.
I feel like if I were to use my words, it wouldn't be pretty. Perhaps that is how he also feels.
It has been a quiet day. Very quiet.
