@SoontobeMrsA: I’m sorry, I do this ALL the time. DH says stupid things all the time, so many that I can’t pick one to cite (okay, maybe I don’t remember any of them…) but I just know that I do the same to him, and he never says anything.

Lol… My FI has added the being a mom thing in there and I’ve even responded with the that was 6 yrs ago..

this is his addage… babe women were made to be moms and becoming a mom changes your body… those girls are girls & you’re a mom

He absolutely loves me… all of me and knowing his heart on it, i very rarely think of it as him putting his foot in his mouth anymore

Just remember he’s human & just like you get to complain b/c you’re a girl he gets to say things that others don’t always take well/right b/c he’s a human 😉

Once FI told me “I love you, even with all of your flaws” haha, I know he meant it in a sweet way, but it was kind of like an umm what? moment 😉

Ya my username came as a result of a moment like that.  FI said, “oh babe, I love you!  You’re such a porker!”  I, of course, was just shocked and started crying because I had been working hard to lose weight (and I was only 130 at my heaviest).  He immediately was like, “umm… that’s the wrong term isn’t it?  I mean you’re cute!  Like a little pig… piglet?”

Um. NO.  Eventually I came to like it, but he sure had a lot of explaining and making it up to me to do!

@SoontobeMrsA: The correct answer is “Babe you look great.”  

(It’s actually not a bad idea to give him pointers on how to compliment.)

I tell BF that I like his big, fat head all the time. I am a terrible girlfriend.

Ha I was examining myself in the mirror last night and DH told me I’d filled out some and I now had “awesome child-bearing hips!” Ugh.

My FI sometimes switches words/meanings around. He said, “You look so homely.” Homely? For real? Ah no, poor guy meant homey. Like home. Not to be confused with homely, which is ugly. He also gets feelings and fingers confused: “Oh no, did that hurt your fingers?” Love him!

@kaylee26: Yeah, I have no doubt he meant it as a compliment. I mean, I know he loves my hips and ass; he can’t keep his hands off of them. We’re TTC, and I had mentioned how nervous I am about the whole delivery thing, and I think he thought saying it would help.
