How to avoid boiling point drops from ice cold water
By Emily SchulteOctober 3, 2018 – 10:25:55I was sitting in a chair at home, my hands in my lap.
I was having a cup of coffee and I was waiting for my husband to get home.
He was on the way.
He didn’t know I was out at work.
He was a little upset.
But he was also, like, “I didn’t think you’d want to do that.”
We were sitting at a coffee shop with our two young kids, just relaxing, but then something went wrong.
My husband’s phone started ringing.
It was an automated voice.
It said, “Your call is being monitored.”
“It’s okay, it’s just my husband,” I said.
I couldn’t get it out.
I didn’t want to lose the call.
I asked, “Do I have to get up?”
“Yeah, go ahead.”
“Okay, so you’re fine?”
“Yes, it was just a little bit of a surprise.”
He got home.
I said, ‘Thank you, you’ve made me a better mom.’
He’s like, ‘I’m sorry.'””
No, you’re not.
I’m very thankful that I have my husband’s call.
You’re the best.
He’s my biggest fan.
“I started thinking about my son, who has autism, and I said to him, ‘Why can’t you just know that my husband loves me unconditionally?'”
He had autism, but he’s also a great dad.
I told him, “If your dad loved you, would you just get up and go and get your kids out of here?”
He’s like ‘No, that’s not fair.
That’s not what I told you.’
He doesn’t understand why.
But I kept thinking about him, and how many things we’ve done for him that I’ve been able to say, ‘My husband loves you.’
And he said, I know that.
I love you.
“I kept thinking, what is the difference between having someone love you and loving someone unconditionally?
What does that even mean?
I’m an adult, so I’m able to know my limits.
But I’m also trying to understand it for my children.
I keep asking, what’s it like to be in a situation where your partner says something that hurts you, and you feel that you’re in danger?
What’s your advice for people with autism?
What’s the best thing to do when someone says something you don’t like?
