Many moons ago, when the kids were little, I was joking around and told them that Studly Husband and I are like:
We just go together!
And if I remember this correctly, one of them, I think it was Kate, said: "YEAH, like Tigger & Pooh!"

You just go together."
So, ever since then, the saying has been that we "go together like peas and carrots, like peanut butter and jelly, like Tigger and Pooh."
Now, if you knew us, then you'd know that there is no question at all about just which one of us is Tigger and which one of us is Pooh!
Studly Husband is calm, cool and collected. He is definitely a 'Type B'--Definitely Pooh! He doesn't get too excited or ruffled about things! He lives most days by the Philosophy of Life According to Pooh -- "Oh Bother!"
And, me, well I'm definitely a 'Type A'--Definitely Tigger! I'm excited about life and new things, always getting my little feathers ruffled, singing and dancing. I live most days by the Philosophy of Life According to Tigger -- "YEEESSSS!! That's what Tiggers like BEST!"
Have you ever taken the Myers-Briggs Personality Test:
if not, you should. It's really fun and quite fascinating.
Studly is a Guardian (ISTJ) and I'm an Idealist (ENFJ)! In many ways, we're complete opposites. In fact, the book says that Guardians and Idealists don't really go together very well.
But, somehow it works for us.
He keeps my feet on the ground most days, and I occasionly help him to fly!
I think its the:
yin and yang that makes us work!
And so, since I'm the Tigger and since Tigger uses one of the cutest and sweetest farewell sayings I know (with the reminder that he'll be back soon)-- "TTFN--Ta Ta For Now", it just seemed to be a good fit!
I'm off to do some sewing and watch "Lost"--because that's what Tiggers Like Best!
