6 Things About My Life My Husband Will Never Understand

Listen, I know I'm as guilty as the next woman at husband/partner bashing.

One time my mom even called me out on it and I got some serious finger wagging over the phone for complaining about my husband on my blog. And yes, I felt thoroughly ashamed about it, and yes, I stopped doing it, because if your mom is your only blog reader, you listen when she starts complaining.

But after some deep soul-searching, I realized that a lot of the complaints that we make as women and mothers and wives stem from one simple fact: Sometimes, the men in our life simply can't understand a lot about our everyday lives. It may be through no fault of his own, but the truth is there are a few things that my husband will never understand. For example:
