4 thoughts on “Show 55 – Manipulate Your Husband”

  1. I love your show, it makes my day when a new show is up and I crack up at work listening to it. I live with my sister and her 3-year old son she adopted in May and we both listen to the podcast and have used so many of your tips and ideas with the boy, thanks for sharing. Just listening about Jenna's "checklinesters" and it reminded me of my niece Mikelle, when she was about 4 her twin sister wanted to be a doctor and Mikelle said she wanted to be a "payer", we asked what a payer was and she said – "you know, when you go to Wal-Mart, you have to "Payer" (pay her) before you can leave"…. she is now 11 and we still refer to payers…..

  2. Additional thought…almost every comment you made in this show, referencing "the husband" or "the wife", and how they respond under certain circumstances, I had to laugh. You see, in my household, I tend to follow typically male responses/reactions (according to your formula) and my husband has typically female responses/reactions. So, just remember that we don't all follow your patterns. For instance, I agree that there will always be one spouse who drops hints rather than just saying what they want (in my case, that would be my husband), and there will be one who goes along dumb, fat & happy thinking everything is okay, oblivious to the hints, and then the bomb drops (that would be me). We've been married 27.5 years, so we're obviously making it work, just a reminder that we don't all operate the same way, and that's okay & normal and workable, too.

    1. We understand there are always differences… but the show is about explaining our marriage… and goes out to those who can relate to it.
