I feel this is more common than not -for sure, us women are generally the worriers carrying some load in our heads about something, we let the stress get to us. Men are more calm and almost ALWAYS more funny! Oh yes!
We still joke like we're teenagers, it's so weird when the kids go to bed we get to stop being sensible adults and just turn goofy again!
Maybe some night they will hear you through their bedroom walls-when they couldn't sleep - I am sure they would find it pretty sweet, with a nice smile -knowing their parents still feel that way.
