So is it really a gene? LOL

OK, first of all, I LOVE my husband! I don't know what I'd do without him; I'd be lost. And I really do appreciate everything he does around the house. But, can anyone tell me what's wrong with this picture!? LOL

I bought these paper towel last week - had a coupon since they were some newfangled style that looks good in the standing holders as oppose to the ones that go under your cabinets. Whatever. But, my my dear, sweet hubby (all on his own) went to replace the paper towels last night, he put them in upside-down! LOL

This led me to think about a conversation he and I had recently...normally, I'm the first one to argue against generalizations. "All guys do this" or "all girls do that" type of comments really grate on my nerves. But, particularly after the sociology class I just took, I realize how much of what we are is a matter of socialization.

While I also praise God for providing to each gender their own unique attributes, how is it that guys seem to know how to "innately" do thing like use tools, fix things, etc. while they can't manage to run a washing machine, use a dishwasher, or sweep? LOL And, how is it that I can learn to manage all thing household-y but still can't remember the correct names for the two types of screwdrivers! LOL

Once, when my 18 year old was 2, we had gone to visit my parents. My fathers recliner was having problems for some reason and he had it turned upside down to fix it. He left to get something and when he came back he found our then 2 year old son trying to unscrew the screws on my fathers chair. My dad was so proud because he was using the right screwdriver on the correct srews. I think somehow it's hardwired in their brain.
