Do you ever find yourself with that sinking feeling when you know you are going to have to address a particular topic for the 17th time with your partner? How do you bring it up?

I often suggest to my clients to give it a code name…and the more playful the better!

“Baby, you are doing that zebra thing again.” Or “It’s about time to have an zebra conversation”

Not only will it bring a little levity to the conversation, but it gives you a way to sum up topic or address it in public without others knowing.

After all, we all have zebras in our relationships.
