A List…and a sappy one at that!

Filed under: General — by Sandie @ 12:40 pm

My husband and I have been attending a Relationship Communications Skills class. In the first class, during the introductions, they asked us to name one thing we love about our partners. It was kinda funny watching some of our classmates as they pondered what they were going to say. Mine came to me easily and I could have named many more. So, I decided to do a list:

  • I love the fact that he’s a great father to our daughters. Watching him interact with our girls makes me fall in love with him all over again. Every time.
  • I love how protective he is of me.
  • I love that when I proposed he drive 20 hours with a 2 year old and a 4 year old, he didn’t bat an eye and agreed without argument.
  • I love that when we discussed permanent birth control, he had no problems making an appointment for a vasectomy. And I love that when I changed my mind after the initial consultation, he cancelled the procedure without argument.
  • I love that he’s not threatened by the fact that I out rank him. I love that he doesn’t let the good-natured ribbing he gets from co-workers affect him. He just tells them I’m his “sugar mama.”
  • I love that he takes care of the house. Not just the outside stuff, but the inside stuff too. And he does it all…laundry, dishes, mopping, vacuuming, you name it, he does it.
  • I love that even though he’s rarely able to surprise me, he never stops trying.
  • I love that he’s still attracted to me. I look in the mirror and pick out all my faults…the sagging boobs, the skin once stretched tight by babies that now sags in all the wrong places, the extra “fluff” I’ve picked up over the years. He sees none of it.
  • I love that he takes care of me when I’m sick. I can be the world’s biggest baby when I’m sick and he lets me be one.
  • And most of all, I love that he loves me.

    2. I second The Bear, AWWWWWWWWW. My husband had the big V a few weeks back and it was all his idea since me getting my tubes tied would be more dangerous.

    4. […] I have the best husband in the world. Why you may ask? Well, for starters, everything I listed here. And the icing on the cake: he does floors. Sunday he scrubbed our entire living room and hallway. […]
