What are Husbands For?
What are Husbands for? My husband is for laughing (a nice, supportive laugh – not the kind where I want to smack him, which I never have, but you know what I mean) when I tell him I’m PMS-ing, have too many billion things to do, I don’t know how to clone myself, and I need wine and chocolate ASAP – and then he tells me he’s leaving work in 10 minutes and he’ll stop at the store on the way home for me.
My husband is for always saying he loves me and gives me a kiss on his way out the door, and for always saying he loves me and gives me a kiss when he gets home. He is for always doing the same with the boys – he loves them, he hugs them, he gives them kisses. My husband is for helping me get the boys dressed in the morning, even if it might make him 5 minutes late for work (because I hear him go start the car and think “oh no, he’s not sneaking out the door before the boys are up…” so I woke them up so they could see Daddy, and he could love them, hug them and give them kisses).
My husband is for supporting me, acknowledging me, and thanking me. My husband is for knowing when I need a break and telling me to go take a shower (or maybe that’s because my hair is a mess and I’ve been wearing the same shirt for 2 days… hmmm?). My husband is for cleaning up the dishes from dinner and helping me put the boys to bed (when he’s home in time, which is usually only Fri, Sat & Sun). My husband is for watching what I want to watch on tv, including hours upon hours of the Food Network, despite the fact that he doesn’t cook. My husband is for devouring whatever I fix for dinner – be it a frozen pizza or a made up, made from scratch gourmet meal.
My husband is for working harder than he ever has to take care of his family. My husband is for being passionate about what he does, and for always trying to improve himself while keeping clients happy. My husband is for being honest, open and trustworthy – which in the business world is not often the way people are. My husband is for sharing with me his wins, and his losses.
My husband is the best thing that has happened to me. One might ask, aren’t your boys the best things that have ever happened to you? Well, um, without my husband, I would not have my boys (yeah, not going to go into details there – we all know how babies are made… *smile*). The best part of it all: My husband was made just for me. We are soul mates, and he is all mine (no sharing, sorry ladies).
