Ok, add to this phrase: "I love my husband (or partner) when............."


I'll start. I love my dh when he makes me feel good about a crappy new haircut!

And when he tells other parents not to circ.

I love Dh when he gets up at 4 am with PJ and changes him and comforts him so I can sleep, or he comes home from work and surprises me with flowers and dinner out, and when he lets me have the remote, so I can control the tv, then I get to watch, old movies and "chick" flixs....

I love it when my DH cooks breakfast on Saturday mornings

gets groceries and brings me home Wonderbars without me asking

BBQ's pretty much every night in summer

cleans the cat litter- even though all 6 cats are mine

doesnt yell at me for buying the millionth birthday gift for some aquaintance, family member, friend even though we cant really afford it, he knows it makes me happy


He's pretty much a saint I will admit, doing alot of the cooking, cleaning and childcare...plus putting up with my crummy moods!

When...

- I see him talking to other people. It reminds me of how smart he is!

- He does crazy stuff to make Noah laugh.

- He walks in the door and Noah says "daddy, daddy, daddy!" because it reminds me of how much he loves Noah and Noah loves him back.

- He looks at me like he thinks I'm the most beautiful woman in the world.

is sleeping on the couch, I love to just watch him.
when the first thing he asks me after work is how I felt today.
play with mydd like she was his own
talks to his friends, he is so darn loving to them
when he eats my "natural veggie" food even though he wants meat and hates it...he also says he likes it...

i LOVE MY DH-2B WHEN...........................

he can't sleep and wakes me up to come to the living room with him. He watches TV and I sleep in his lap. He stroks my hair and face. He wants me with him; but doesn't want to take my sleep. He is so tender; and I know he is loving me while I sleep. Best sleep there is.

I love my dh when........

1) He comes home and surprises me with a handful of picked flowers he had to get by stopping the car (possibly blocking traffic) just to get the ones he saw that were beautiful that he wanted to bring home to me.

2) He asks me about my day (even though I am home all day long) before going into how hectic his day was.

3) Will get up at 5:30am to go to work when his back is hurting him.

4) During the school year he will wake me with a fresh cup of coffee and a good morning kiss.

5) When he talks about skydiving and his entire face lights up just knowing he is going to make a jump today.

6) When he will call me and tell me he is about to make a jump. I don't skydive, so I like to know when he is about to make a jump so I can pray for his safety. He is so respectful of that.

7) I watch him walk down our driveway with the kids to take them fishing.

Oh wow, I could make a huge long list here. What a cool idea for a thread. Just typing out some of the things I love most about my dh has put me back in the right perspective of loving him....

I really do love my husband and sometimes I don't feel people express their appreciation of their spouse enough. So I'm in on this thread.

I ask him one time for something to be repaired around the house and the next time he has a chance it is done. No pestering or asking several times.

We work side-by-side in the garden or on any other project.

He takes great care of the kids when I am working and even puts the dishes in the dish washer.

I love my dh when:

....he plays with dd......yesterday I walked in to her room, and in trying to get her to get dressed, put her pants on himself. They were both giggling.

.....he talks man to man with my ds and cares about him like he was his own.

.....its the weekend.....he totally takes over care of dd & makes us great breakfasts!

.....he lets me sleep in! I love sleep more than anything these days, and unfortuneately dont get enough of it.

.....puts up with my family or friends visiting, never saying a word

......every mothers day.....he buys me a day at the spa....facial, pedicure, massage

~When he takes out one or both of the older boys out for a few hours allowing me some downtime.

~When he bakes me sugar-laden goodies at 10 at night. From scratch! He sure can bake!

~When he surprises me with flowers and a treat after I have told him I've had a bad day.

~When he calls me from work for the 10th time every day just to see how I'm doing and say "I love you!"

~When I put on something new that shows off my curves and he notices.

~When I buy another unneccessary cloth diaper for one of the kids and he won't give me grief.

~When he makes me up a cup of coffee in the morning because I've been too busy running after the kids, and makes it up better than I make my own.

~When he plays with the boys. He's the roughouser in the family. It's fun to watch them.

~When I see Dh sleeping with our youngest, both all curled up together, awwwww.

~When, like yesturday, he brought home dinner even though we couldn't afford it because I said we'd have to have cereal for dinner - the town had the water off, it was too hot to cook and we were burned out from our 800 mile trip home!

..when he says "WOW" to the $14 haircut that I got at Supercuts.

...when I look at our beautiful darling boy and I can see my dh in our son's smile.

...when he agrees with me about how to parent, how to live life in general, what's wrong w/the world, etc., and sometimes says it better than I could.
...when he tells me what a good person I am.
...when I'm feeling ordinary or even ugly and he's suddenly looking at me like I'm the sexiest thing in the world.
...when he tells me my idea is terrific.
...when he's all excited about some new thing he can make from Legos.
...when he makes necklaces for me (not from Legos!).
...when I'm sick and he sits on the foot of the bed talking w/me even tho he really doesn't like being around sick people.
...when he admires a photo I've taken.
...when I initiate sex but my body's not cooperating, and he takes as much time as necessary to get me ready without complaining a bit!
...when he brags to people about how I make good spaghetti sauce.
...when I'm not satisfied w/something I've done and he convinces me that it's pretty good--like when I tie-dyed a bunch of fabric without any instructions and it came out a lot runnier-looking than I was expecting, but he claimed he's always preferred runny-looking tie-dye.
...when he doesn't get annoyed w/me for calling him at work to ask the same question about programming the VCR for the kajillionth time.
...when he cooks for me even tho he's not hungry right now.
...when he's snuggling me w/my head on his chest.

I love my dh-2b when he can't be without me.

He left 3 weeks ago for traning in GA. The plan was not to see each other till Thanksginvg. Then a week after he left he booked me tickets to go seen him Columbus day; we had a coupon and the ticket was like 15 bucks. .

...........................................then I really love him when last Friday he called and booked me a flight out to see this Labor Day -- as in this weekend.

I love that he misses me and is willing to admit it.

It'd be really great it we could phrase these parents as partners thread titles with the word "partner" instead of husband all the time. I realize it's habit and not malicious.

Just something to think about.

I love my partner when he brings me lattes without asking.

.......when he'll go out, at any hour, even if he's already in his pjs (he'll get dressed), to get me a food I'm craving. Once on a road trip at 1am we were in Sedona, AZ and I was craving a grilled cheese sandwich- he drove around and nothing was open so he went to a gas station mini-mart, bought white bread and cheese

..........when people ask if ds2 is still nursing, and dh says "yes, and he can nurse as long as he wants"

.........when he tells people how wonderful our homebirth was

..........when he tells me how much better I look since I've gained weight
