Happy Valentine's Day!!
Being as it's Valentine's Day, I thought it would be fun to do a Husband-Themed Little Things Thursday! We don't celebrate Valentine's Day over here, simply because it seems silly to us to do romantic things on a designated romantic day. Instead, we like to surprise each other one random day within a month or two of February 14th. It's a lot more fun!
But honestly, one day doesn't make or break a relationship. Instead, it's the little things that happen everyday that shape how a marriage functions. So today, I'd like to share a few things that my husband does consistently for me just because he loves me.
1. Sets Out My Vitamins
The bills stress me out to no end. I'm talking, "lose sleep, stomach churning" stress. I just can't handle knowing how quickly Sean's hard earned money heads back out the door. I do need to learn our household finances in case something ever happens, but Sean has taken over the duty and quietly leaves me in the dark so that I don't have to worry about it.
3. "Take a Nap, Woman!"
Every morning on his way out the door, Sean tells me to take a nap if possible. I need more sleep than most, and he always tells me to take time to care for myself. I used to feel a lot of guilt for taking a nap when he was working so hard, but I really appreciate his insistence that I stop long enough to rest. It makes for a much happier, less-stressed wife/mommy!
4. Post Dinner Clean-Up Buddy
5. Loves Our Kids...and PLAYS with Them!
6. Never Complains About Long Work Hours
7. Always Watches the Scary Show First
Speaking of which, not every daddy is so invested in his kids. He LOVES playing with them and letting them crawl all over him. It means the world to me to see that he loves them enough to be interested in what they are interested in.
My man works some seriously long hours. Yet, I never hear him complain about working late or working on the weekends. I'm grateful for how positive he is. I know that will influence how our kids see the world as they get older.
I get spooked so easily. It's actually pretty hilarious! Sean always makes sure that if we are sitting down to watch Netflix, that we watch the "scary" show first (i.e. Walking Dead) and then the lighter show second (i.e. Psych, Once Upon a Time) so that I have some distance the first one. It's extremely thoughtful...and much appreciated! :)
There are so many more little things that he does that I appreciate, but I would have to devote an entire blog to it. So instead, I'll stop here and say,
"Thanks, Babe! All of your sweet actions don't go unnoticed!"
I'm also going to do a shameless plug for the latest article I wrote for KC Parent Magazine. The article is called "Staying Connected with Your Spouse." It's about how Sean and I connect everyday in 15 minutes or less.
And if you can't get enough marriage stuff with it being Valentine's Day, you are welcome to go back and read my previous posts called, "Marriage and Multiples: The Little Moments" and "Marriage and Multiples: The Importance of Away Time."
