Communication – it’s the life blood of a relationship, but sometimes do you feel like, “Man, my spouse doesn’t even hear me. I just said something” and you’re waiting for that response.

Our 3-year old, Jackson, when he gets that feeling, he has a very interesting response. He will just kind of out of the blue say, “Anybody!”

“Anybody out there!” That a pretty good way. It’s a pretty good tecnique we have used now in our own marriage.

Yeah, it’s so effective that we’ve started that code and whenever I say something and you don’t respond I’ll just say to you, “Anybody!” and you get it.

Friend, you can do the same thing. Check in with your spouse to make sure you’re fully present.
