The musings of ME:
SAH mother of 3 kids, spouse of a doctor-in-residency, caretaker and teacher of random children.

Whats his name? Ben or Benjamin! if he's done/said something outrageous (which is often)
How long have you been together? married for 4.25 years
How long did you date? a year and 3 months
How old is he? 27
Who eats more? he does, but occasionally I can compete
Who said I love you first? I'm pretty sure I did.
Who is taller? Ben is. He's 6' and I am 5'6"
Who sings better? Me, he can only sing hymns that he knows really well.
Who is smarter? We are both smart in very different ways. We both have photographic memories, but he retains way more details than I do, and has better study skills. He also has a greater work ethic when it comes to pushing himself to learn than I do. I'm an English person, he's a Math and Science person. I definitely have more life experience, which is just a nice way to say I made a lot of mistakes and had to learn the hard way...Ok, ok, he is smarter, but don't tell him I said that!
Who does he laundry? I do
Who pays the bills? He did until he started med school, then I took over.
Who sleeps on the right side? looking at the bed from the foot of the bed, he does.
Who mows the lawn? He does, but I am going to learn how now that my asthma isn't an issue anymore. He's too busy for it.
Who cooks dinner? I cook most every night. He can make a few things, but usually I cook. He would if I asked him to, though, but I love to cook. I take pride in being a good cook, and that most of the time, what I can make at home is better than what we could eat out at a nice restaurant, and healthier!
Who drives? Him usually. When we take long trips, I drive so he can study. He has to take dramamine though because he gets motion sickness horribly.
Who is more stubborn? hard to say...I used to be, before we got married, and I am still a stickler about some things, but I have relaxed a lot over the years, so he is probably more stubborn now.
Who kissed who first? Now that is a funny story. He had this rule about not kissing a girl until he was sure she was the one he was going to marry. I took that as a personal challenge! On our third date I got impatient, and I pretty much attacked him. He kissed me back, and I went in the house bragging to my family that I got him to break his rule (they knew all about my evil plans to corrupt him, it was kind oif a household bet...hehe). What I didn't know is that he came in behind me! He had forgotten a movie my dad had asked him to take back to Blockbuster for us on his way home! He didn't say anything, just took the movie and left. Later I called him and he wasn't mad at all. He forgave me, and continued with the kissing, thankfully! Who knows, maybe BECAUSE he kissed me, I became the woman he married, I mean, he is a pretty good kisser!
Who proposed? He did. One night after a re-enactment date of our first date, I was sitting on a bench by this beautiful tree in my parents' front yard. He said, "My Sunday School teacher told me once that if I behaved in SS, my wife would be beautiful, but he lied, because I was rotten!" lol, I thought it was cute. Also, the ring was huge (by my standards) and came in a box that lit it up when you opened it! So cool!
Who has more friends? Probably me, I have time to make friends and keep up with the relationships. Plus, I tend to keep in touch with old friends, too, and he doesn't have time to be friends with anyone except the guys he goes to school with.
Who is more sensitive? Me
Who has more siblings? He does, 4 to 2
Who wears the pants? We both do, but everyone would say he does. I just don't like to put my foot down in front of other people. Ben will tell you, though, that I can be a real you-know-what when I want something or I will just go and do it anyway. However, we make big decisions together after many conversations, weighing pros and cons, and prayer.

I tag anyone...
