Dear Husband, Happy Father’s Day

Dear Husband,

Father and Son Bonding

Happy Father’s Day to the most amazing dad I know. I honestly don’t know how I would be able to survive without you. You are so helpful! You are the rock to my crazy tornado. I cannot begin to believe what I would do without you. Our son is so lucky to have such a fun, strong, and lovable daddy. You mean the world to him and he adores you for that! So thank you, for always being everything we need and more. You fit so perfectly into your role as Father that it’s like you were meant to be a dad! This Father’s Day I hope that you have enough time on the toilet without being interrupted, enough beer or whiskey without being judged, enough TV time without complaints, and enough you-know-what to make sure your night is complete. I love you so darn much it hurts. Mainly, I love that you love our son. You are an awesome Dad!

What are you and your dad doing this Father’s Day?

I woke up this morning and went to get my husband his favorite breakfast burritos. Then we went and saw the new Cars 3 movie. Our son LOVED it! Right now we are just hanging out and relaxing. Later we will go to my father-in-law’s for a Father’s Day dinner. Next week is when we will spend “Father’s Day” with my daddy, and I am so excited!

Dear Husband, PART TWO of what NOT to say to your Wifey

A few weeks ago I posted some tips for your husband of what not to say or do. Lets continue. Here are 6 MORE things for him to avoid.

Today I am bringing you actual quotes that women have said to me since. I wanted to quote the ladies who said these, but to be honest, I have forgotten. What if I have not written the exact quote correctly? Then they would be mad. So sorry! But not really, because either way, these are GOLD!

When I am sick, I hate hearing “You look like CRAP”

What the? DON’T! You MUST at all times, think we are beautiful. End. of. story!

“Why don’t you like/love me?”

Of course we love you, we might just not like you all of the time, but don’t you think it’s a bit much to flat out ask us?

“What is wrong with you?”

YOU are what is wrong right now. No, not really, but there is a kinder way to ask what is bothering us. Why don’t you try, “Hey, beautiful, extraordinary wife, I understand that something might be slightly upsetting you. It might be me, and that is okay, but how can I help?”

“Can you help me?” Then proceeds to NOT let you help them.

Don’t ask for our help and then proceed to not accept it. If you don’t actually want our help, don’t ask.

Now this next one I threw in just because I feel that it is important to touch on.

Do not say any kind of “parenting war” inducing statements. Such as telling your kids who the cooler parent is, or undermining your disciplinary strategies.

We are a team and we HAVE to work together! Our children will respect us more if we show them that we are one parenting unit and that we agree and compromise as a team. It is important in this day and age to teach through actions as well as words. Kids are like sponges, they soak up everything you say and do!

Dear Husband, What NOT to say to your wife!

Hello Hubby’s!

This post is for you, even though your wife/girlfriend/significant other is probably reading this. (P.s. Please tag them, or share this, or kindly read it to them) I feel it is our duty as women to help you avoid the sticky situations. Today, I want to give you some tips on what NOT to say/do to your wife.

Side note; this probably goes for all relationships. Not just married couples.

 What not to say

  1. Do not touch her belly in a non sexual way.
    1. You know what? Just stay away from any “actions” that might make her feel like you are pointing out her “problem areas”
    2. Yes, we know that we are supposed to love our bodies. Sometimes that isn’t the reality.
    3. You are the #1 person to keep us a float in this horrible world. DON’T eff it up!
  2. “Calm down”
    1. Just don’t.
    2. Have you ever tried to tell a shark to calm down?
  3. “Is that your third cookie?”
    1. See example number 1.
    2. Don’t call us fat.
  4. “You are being stupid!”
    1. WHAT? I may not have as many years on this Earth as you, but I am not dumb!
    2. Her intelligence is just as important as yours.
  5. “What did you say?”
    1. This is referring to the sarcastic version.
    2. We know DAMN well that you heard us!
  6. “I wasn’t listening, because it wasn’t all about me”
    1. Okay, you might not actually say this..BUT
    2. LISTEN to us!
    3. Not everything has to be about you or what you like.

Wrap it up!

THAT ^ is another example. However, I want to keep your attention, so we will wrap it up there. Try to avoid using these actions or phrases. Please.
