Deacon: Alex sounds just like Little Deacon 1
Me: I don’t know how we ended up with such stubborn kids
Deacon: Must be from our spouses
Me: Clearly they didn’t get it from you and I
At this point I’m pretty sure our respective spouses had rendered themselves blind from the excessive eyerolling. Which is silly, cuz we aren’t stubborn.
This conversation from siblings who got in a huge disagreement a few years back, didn’t speak for years, arranged to miss holidays where the other was present (cuz we aren’t stubborn) and only suffered through sitting in the same room together when I was already AT Grandma’s when Dad arrived and told me two of my brothers were arriving shortly. I said, “You’d BETTER mean Prof and Forbes.” He just walked away. That disagreement was finally settled by he and I each writing a singular long ass diatribe to the other stating all of our grievances and never speaking of it again.
Technically neither of us have ever apologized for any of that. (Cuz we aren’t stubborn.)
How about you? Are you stubborn?

I am so not stubborn.
Like I am definitely talking to Nathan right now, even though he was snarky at me.
Even though I am still Bf because my FIL thinks I shouldn’t be.
Even though I haven’t mopped a floor since I was told I was no good at it.
Not stubborn at all.
No stubborn streak here. I mean someone who was a little stubborn might have decided to stop speaking to their mother as a result of her serious insanity and destructive drama scenes at Christmas. Someone who was a little stubborn might still not be talking to her, even though it is March.
But not me. Nope.

I am not stubborn. Neither is Mr. Hot. When one of us decides on the silent treatment for the other? It’s been known to be verrrrrrrrrry quiet.

Nope, no stubborn streaks here…
Little Dude is filled with diligence, determination and the need to persevere, no matter what obstacle is in his way – those shining assets are from both of his parents, I will admit.
I know some people say strong-willed and stubborn, but they are just wrong…
(And if I was stubborn, I would still hold my little sister’s last meltdown, where she made many hate-filled comments about me, against her… We didn’t talk for a few months, but we are all better now. Not stubborn. Neither of us.)

Me? I’m appalled! I never get into needless power struggles with students (because clearly I’m not stubborn). 0:-)
I’m not especially stubborn, but my husband and my mother? Both stubborn, and therefore like oil and water.

I am so not stubborn. Not at all. Ever. Not Stubborn.
And I am always right.

Kinda funny as my brother & I did something quite similar. We never “made up” either. We speak on occasion, but there’s lots of water under the bridge. Oh, and I am not only stubborn? I have no problem holding onto grudges for decades. Same with him. He’s hated me since I destroyed his Lego civilization 25 years ago. He’s even admitted that.

I’m not stubborn either. I’m just………..pensive and quiet. And maybe a wee bit indignant. Not stubborn.

Great..thanks for pointing that out!
MP’s last blog post..I interrupt rubbing Aruba in your face for another Q&A
I most certainly AM NOT stubborn, although occasionally will refuse to lose a fight.
Jennifer’s last blog post..When I Need Expert Advice, I Consult Mah Peeps on Teh Internetz
Stubborn as in sitting on the side of the road for an hour because I refused to drive after my ex-husband mocked my driving? Or stubborn as in spending an entire day not using my hands to prove a point?
I was going to say “yes,” but I’d never admit that.
Sarcastic Mom’s last blog post..That?¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢s what I get for letting him watch tv before age 3.
I’ll admit it. Yes, I’m stubborn….sometimes 😉
Sandy (Momisodes)’s last blog post..Delurk and Wave! Rerolling the Blogroll
I am not stubborn, it even took me 3 goes to spell it properly it is so foreign to me. I am just fabulous and always right. Sometimes people take a little time to come around to my way of thinking is all.
Kelley’s last blog post..Sleep deprivation + Heat exhaustion = Wardrobe malfunction.
Depends on what we’re dealing with. I am bad at staying mad at those I love; I forgive quickly, but don’t forget. (I mean I don’t purposely hold on to hurts, I just have a very good memory.)
I’m in for guest posting. Because I can write anywhere but my own blog. And you have X times the number of readers. Heh.

Oh…stubborn indeed!! I can’t shut up long enough to give the silent treatment so I’ll just keep pushing the issue until it’s resolved.

According to my husband I am really stuborn… something about me ‘digging in my heals’ again. Me, I wouldn’t say I’m stuborn, it’s just that ‘when I’m right… I’m right’!
