Appreciating my DH

Posted 09-24-2012 at 02:28 PM by Heather8183

Sometimes he picks his nose, and sometimes he spends an hour in the bathroom to get some peace and quiet, but he’s an awesome husband and a great dada.  His feet stink after work, and he snores sometimes, but all of his positive attributes outweigh those few negatives.

So many women bash their husbands on a regular basis, complaining of all he does wrong without ever stopping to think what he does right.  I’m not claiming I’m wonder wife (far from it!) but I do appreciate all that the hubs does for us.

DH is a hard worker.  He provides for our family so that I can stay home with our kids.  Sometimes he works 50 and 60 hours a week, leaving home before we get up and coming home after the kids are already in bed.  He’s committed to doing whatever it takes to provide for our family.

Hold onto your hats, ladies…this one is going to make you jealous.  The hubs NEVER asks what I spent on anything.  Not where the money went, not where all those newborn diapers came from for a baby we’re not even TTC yet, and most certainly never a “you spent how much?!”  Most of the time, he just grins.

Not only does DH fully support my hobbies, but he always jumps in right along with me.  I don’t know any other husband who measures and cuts fabric, balls yarn, and screenprints shirts.  He puts up with all my hairbrained schemes and bright ideas, and always assures me that “you could make that, and it would be better than theirs too.”

Cloth diapering, using mama cloth, introducing family cloth and unpaper towels were all met with nothing more than a raised eyebrow and a smile that knows he wouldn’t win even if he did want to argue.

On top of all that, he’s so complimentary.  Our house can be a cluttered mess (not that it ever would be, just an example of course) and it doesn’t faze him one bit.  If I do just one thing before he gets home, say cleaning off the counter, he’ll walk in the door and say, “wow, hun, the house looks great!”  Blows.my.mind.  Not a day goes by that he doesn’t remind me (try to convince me??) that I’m the most beautiful woman he’s ever known.

I’m so incredibly blessed to have such a great husband who loves me for me, despite all my faults.  <3

    BRAVO to you and your husband! I agree, we women bash our husbands far too often. I know my hubby does things that drive me crazy sometimes, but there are SO MANY reasons why I love him and why I do appreciate him so much! Thanks for the reminder!

    He sounds like a fantastic DH. There’s nothing like showing the men in our lives a little appreciation for what they do. Thanks for reminding me to appreciate mine.

    Heather, are you sure you aren’t married to my husband? David is exactly the husband you described. One thing that you will notice is I never use the term “DH”, David saw it one day and said that he thought it was derogatory and asked to never be called “DH” ever. To that I agreed, because that is respectful to him, seeing as he does so much for us!

    @Melmonkey: Derogatory? I thought it meant Dear Husband… That’s sweet, to me!
