Relationship Tips: Dear Husband, I Appreciate You
I haven't told my girlfriends what I'm about to tell you because I am afraid they'll hate me if they knew the truth about you. You cook. You clean. You even change the kitty litter. And when one of our kids throws up in the middle of the night, you happily (ok, not happily) clean up the barf.
Listening to my girlfriends gripe about how their hubbies never help around the house and spend their weekends glued to whatever game is on TV, I don't have the heart to tell them that you don't watch sports at all. You're too busy folding laundry and mopping!
I don't want to rub it in and tell them that I never had to beg you to change a diaper or clean a sippy cup. While their husbands were diaper-dodging, you did it without even being asked.
Thanks for not caring that I don't (err, can't...) cook and for not complaining when I leave dirty dishes in the sink or neglect to change the sheets. Thanks even more for cleaning those dishes and washing those sheets when I don't!
Don't worry, honey. I know how good I've got it. And I really want to tell you how much I appreciate you. I'm just not going to tell my girlfriends!
