I Told You So

 I can not even tell you how many times in my marriage I have said this or wanted to say this.  I mean come on if my hubby would just listen to me sometimes things would go a LOT smoother (and I am sure he feels the same about me too).   

Well yesterday was one of those times.  The girls have been sick for several weeks now, the doctor said it was a viral thing and we needed to wait it out.  A couple weeks ago I thought it could be something else and wanted to take them back in.  Nope my hubs would not have it, and to avoid a fight I backed down.  Well yesterday we find out I WAS RIGHT!  Yep, the girls have exactly what I thought they did and I took them in to the doctor and we are now treating for this.

I am sure any of you that have ever been in a relationship understand how much I wanted to pick up the phone call my hubby at work and say I TOLD YOU SO!  But alas I did not do that.  I decided to be the bigger person here and realize that we all do make mistakes and instead of rubbing it in his face, which would surly have just cause a fight I would just let him know what was going on, bring him in to the conversation about the girls and let us both decide what steps to take now.

I have learned over the years that one of the big secrets of a happy healthy relationship is learning to bite your tongue   And bite my tongue I did.  We had no fight, I did not make my hubby feel bad, and everything that needed to get done did.

So this weeks lesson/goal for me is learning to bite my tongue.  It is not always easy but it sure does make for less fights and happier times.

Do you say I Told You So?  How do you feel when it is said to you?

  1. Silence really is golden sometimes--especially when it comes to "I told you so's. :) I'm glad that you bit your tongue--it's something I'm slowly learning as well. Great post!

    1. Thanks! It can be hard to bite my tongue sometimes but it can be worth it in the end!

  2. I make a point not to say I Told You So. I'm sure that he already knows I did and feels duly chagrined. Better that I simply offer to help him fix whatever it is.

    1. Oh, it would be nice if I could type my own name correctly, wouldn't it?

    2. Yeah, I am sure my hubby knew too. The whole thing worked out much better with not saying it. Thanks for stopping by!
