Two Types of Couples

MY SON JUST SAID TO ME:

"Mom, you know, there are two types of couples . . . . 

There are the opposites - they fill in each other's gaps.
There are the ones that are the same - they just bond because they go together.

He'd caught me off guard . . . . .  I pondered his 10 year old wisdom for a minute or two.
"Where did you hear that," I asked.
"No where," he said. "I have just been thinking about it."

Then curiosity got the best of me and I asked,  "What are Daddy and I?"

Without missing a beat he said, "You guys are the gap fillers."

Yep, he is exactly right. :-)

Oh, wow, what a thinker! He's right, too! (My sweetie and I are gap-fillers, too. :)

Thanks for stopping by!

I love that he comes up with this stuff . . . . and usually just when I am not so sure he's paying attention. LOL!
I think he is often paying attention to something other than what Mom expects.
