My Husband? He rocks.


To learn more about My Husband Rocks! Friday, please see the icon on my sidebar.

Of course, of all weeks to be busy, it has to be during ICLW, so that I can’t blog to my heart’s content to give everyone something semi- interesting to read. Sorry, blogland! Unfortunately, some of us have lives. I know, right?



SO today, on this BEAUTIFUL Friday in Northeastern Ohio, I’m going to tell you about why my husband rocks. I LOVE this idea, because it’s so easy during the day to day to only see the flaws and reasons why your partner DOESN’T rock. Doing MHR makes me sit down and remember why I married this crazy man to begin with. By the time I’ve finished writing these posts, I feel like I’ve fallen in love with him all over again. That’s what it’s all about, isn’t it?



My husband rocks because I know he will be an amazing father, and he’s SO patient with me throughout the process (so far…. We haven’t really gotten in to the hard stuff, though!) He’s always willing to “practice” by watching the Littles. They love him. He has never even complained once when I’ve offered to take them overnight (or for a whole weekend) and actually gets kinda bummed when my sister and her husband inevitably chicken out and tell us that they just can’t bear to be apart from them overnight.



We have a puppy (Charlie) and a cat (Maggie) who are our “kids.” The Hubs is the one who started referring to us as “mommy” and “daddy” to the animals. He worries over them like they were actual children. It’s so cute! It’s not uncommon for him to forgo a night out with the guys in order to stay home and “hang out with Charlie.” If he’s like this with our nieces and animals, I can only imagine what he’ll be like with our own children. I hope we can find out soon!

That's absolutely wonderful! I know what you mean about focusing on our spouse's faults ... it's all to easy. Maybe you should do one post a week (or a month, if you're not feeling generous ~LOL~) about how much he rocks! :)

Your husband sounds like a keeper! It is always good for me to go over my husband's good points too...since the negative ones really get under my skin. Thanks for reminding me to look at the positive!

How wonderful! What a great idea to have MHR! So often we get caught up in the negative and mundane: We need to remind ourselves of the good.

That's a really great thing to do, you're right, it's so easy to find something to fault them with, but we should constantly remind ourselves with why we're with them.
