My husband surprises me all the time. He knows things and it sneaks up on me. I don't realize he knows the things he knows. You know?
Today, as I was knitting, he asked, "Could you please go do x, y and z after you finish the row?" He knows that I always need to finish a row of knitting before I leave it, or I might get messed up.
"finish the row"--my husband knows that!
He also can expound at length on: why breastfeeding is normal and healthier for baby and mother both, why homebirth is safe and natural, how unschooling works and why, why we support a farming co-op where we get raw milk.
I think he's not listening, but he is. He hears me...mostly. *Charlie Brown's Teacher's voice here*
