Take it like a....mom

The other night my husband and I were talking. He started complaining that he was tired and didn't feel well. Now we have all heard the saying 'take it like a man' I changed it and told him 'to be quite and take it like a mom.' He looked right at me and said 'no, I just not that tough.' I had to laugh. Thought I would share.

  • Nice! At least hubby gets it right! My hubby is the same way, he knows over all moms usually have more to deal with.

  • I like it! :) Men don't realize what we have to do to be who we are. Not just for our kids but for them. We have to be stronge, give advice, cook, clean and everything else they need us to do. So lets keep up the good work moms! :)
