You learn something new every day

For example, today I learned that my husband is really, really, unreasonably bothered by the fact that I painted one fingernail on each hand a different color than the other eight. I used to do accent nails all the time but I haven't really done my fingernails at all in the 10+ years we've known each other (I was a massage therapist, and then a baby factory, neither of which are very conducive to maintaining a manicure. )

What have you learned today?

Re: You learn something new every day

I can't think of anything I learned today, but along the same lines as weird dh issues- My husband has swore he will divorce me if I ever wear a toe ring.

Lol, I've worn the same toe ring for 14 years! Only taken off for my 3 c-sections!

I learned not to volunteer to make fruit shishkabobbs two weeks before your due date in the middle of summer for a birthday party back in June. Lol.

I just got a call from dh- today he learned NEVER go to a grocery store the day before Thanksgiving unless you absolutely have to. of course I could have told him if he has told me ahead of time he was planning on going.

I learned the promise of 2 mini Reese's cups each will get my 4 and 5 year old to clean half the house for me. Including vacuuming!

That would totally work on me, too.

Re: You learn something new every day

I learned that my 4-year-old actually WILL eat Lasagna...as long as I put each and every bite onto the fork for him to come and get in between whatever he's doing/coloring/playing with (And hey, I'll take that! I have a devil of a time thinking of what to feed my kids that they'll actually eat.)
