Why #2

I am blessed to have a very laid-back DH. Some would say too laid-back, but he provides great balance to my more fiery personality. We suit each other well. He very rarely blows his top, so he very rarely feels the need to make amends with expensive gifts (read that diamonds) or grand gestures (read that roses for no reason). I’ve never really understood than mindset that says “I can treat you poorly if I buy you nice things.”

The sad thing is that I see myself doing similar things. Not, in a financial way, but I know that if I have been snappy to one of the kids I may try to compensate by being overly nice. As if I think they can’t see through that???

Why #2: Why do we think diamond rings and and “sure, sweetie” can make up for mistreatment?
