I know, in general, men need things spelled out. Don't assume, don't beat around the bush, just be direct.
But really . . . my husband had to ask if I was going to visit our daughter at the hospital after she has the baby. He got irritated and said, "How would I know unless you tell me?" (which I hear frequently - he never seems to know anything, it's up to me to somehow predict what he needs to be told) Betcha' anything he asks me later if he should go, too.
Sometimes I wonder if it's more than just a guy being clueless. Sorry guys, I know you're not all like this! I grew up w/ 4 brothers and they are not this way.
The good news though, is that dd is having her baby right now, so I'll be holding my grandson later today. :thumbsup:
