...and he is not that happy!

"All I need is some space!". This was told with a plea and urgency in his voice but we were about to go out that night(the very first one after a loooong time)so I didn't argue. It was Valentine's Day and there was no need to be so dramatic therefore I stayed calm. I knew this issue would come again one day but with a growing family he should understand. I felt sorry for him.
During the first few months in our new house, everything went smoothly. He had what he wanted but eventually we invaded it. This wasn't intentional it's just that we have a limited one. Thinking that it was alright, I kept on putting the girls'stuff and sometimes mine beside his. Well, I'm talking about storage.

This is a 5-shelf-unit and he has one for his stuff which was reduced into half as you can see. The poor guy!! So now I don't have any other choice but to take things out of his way but then again this is for the tranquillity of our household, right?

Why is it so hard to remember that guys need space too? I'm constantly forgetting and invading my husband's half-inch of our closet. Good luck!

It is the other way around over here!! I share a bathroom with the girls because the one in our bedroom is teeny tiny!

Oh, yes, we guys need our space, too. My wife has been pretty good about that though since our move to the Philippines. She did let me put my two pair of shoes on her big shoe rack!

Good luck, finding the balance in anything always seems to be the tricky part. My hubby has plenty of space, he just can't remember which space he put anything in...*sigh*
