    Big Grin Things You've Taught Your SO...

    That you never expected to teach!

    I was thinking about this as I wrote the rent check today. What are things that you have taught/are teaching your SO that you never thought you would have to do?

    For me, it's:

    - How to write a check (he had always used cash)
    - How to keep money in the bank account (still working on this...)
    - How to separate laundry!
    - How to grocery shop (he thought chocolate, booze, and cereal was all he needed )
    - How to use online bill-pay (he's still not a fan)
    - How to set up an e-mail account (seriously!)

    Where to store shredded cheese.... :suspicious

    He now stores it in the freezer so it lasts longer.

    I don't know if I have really taught him anything in particular. I am going to teach him online bill paying for sure. And I'm sure a few other things eventually. But that is all that is sticking out to me at the moment.

    ETA: oh yes how to ski, I'm teaching him how to drive a manual, uummm.... i taught him sorta kinda how to ride a motorcycle.
    I need a
    I don't have forever or

    How to make crepes and speak French, and yes I am super stereotypical.

    Otherwise, he's a pretty smart fella.

    I've taught Russ:

    -how to book a train ticket lol
    -I told him what happens at the gyno.....
    -I told him how tampons/pads work and how to use them (He was genuinely curious.... he has no sisters so he had no idea. )
    -how to kiss and everything after that (I was his first everything. )
    -how to dance (I'm slowly building his confidence. )
    -How to speak a little french

    I can't think of anything else.

    What a grain elevator is. When we got our pre-deployment pictures taken, there was one in the background, and he thought it was a prison. Various other agricultural things, how to type (he knew how to hunt/peck, but when he deployed, we relied on the laptop to talk, so his typing improved a lot. I take the credit for that because if he wasn't with me, he wouldn't have a reason to learn), how to check a blood sugar, what my low/high symptoms are, lots of other stuff about diabetes, and how to jet ski.

    - How to spell so many things. He's an awesome speaker, but man does he misspell!
    - A bit of American Sign Language
    - How to use semicolons. I was very proud
    - A bit of Chinese - especially from my parent's critical phrases, lol.
    - All kinds of math: I taught my man how to factor!

    But if I really think about it, I have to admit that my DF taught me a lot more than I taught him, in terms of practical things. Even though I'm the scholar, he knows so many odd facts about history, lol. And tons of practical things- how to drive to save gas, how to fold shirts really quickly (which is why he folds laundry heh), etc. etc. So I really benefit from him

    Lucky! 3.5 years and DH still uses the wrong one 98% of the time, and when he uses the right one, it's by chance.
