There is nothing that aggravates me more than my husband or my kids ignoring someone who speaks to them (mainly, me). I know they are just engrossed in whatever they are doing. I know they aren’t being rude on purpose. But I can’t help it. It bothers me.
The other day, after being exceptionally aggravated about it, I got a big check inside of me when I realized–*gulp* I do the same thing! How many times have I sat at the computer and let my kids say, “Mommy, Mommy, Mommy, Mommy, Mommy!” twenty-five times?! How many times have I kept reading emails on my phone while my husband tells me about his day? Yikes!
