We know men are from Mars and women are from Venus or whatever, but can we at least try a little fake it till we make it? Seriously, do men really think we care about all the crazy, inane hit our kids tell us day in and day out? Hate to break it to you, but I get just as bored as the species with the penises hearing what Ella at school did for the 100th time today, but you have to listen to hear what you need to hear. If I have to sort through the bull*hit to not miss the fact that my kids are telling me in some subtle way that she’s being bullied, then I have to listen to all the Ella stories. Also, when your kid gets hurt or your wife’s feeling particularly tired after a long day, they need you to pretend to care (even if you really don’t get why they’re such babies.) Sometimes you just need to put other feelings above your own, and sometimes people just need a hug and to be told it’s all going to be alright.
