Remember that project I started last Monday to better love my husband?
The assignment was to make space for him to rest and take a break from the honey-do list.
Did you participate too? How'd it go?
Like I said in that post, I knew it was going to be a challenge for me since we were just starting week two as parents. But, I used that to my advantage by going straight to the kitchen after Greyer's morning feeding (that he sleeps right after so my hands were free) to make some breakfast for my lover before he even knew I was up!
I made him a little breakfast sandwich and coffee just the way he likes it-- with lots of cream-- and delivered it to him on a tray in bed.
He acted surprised (even though I know he read my blog about it ahead of time) and I played along.
Then I rubbed his shoulders.
He'd been wanting to watch the season premier of his favorite show so we made plans to have a lazy day watching our shows on our laptops (box-shaped).
I also purposed not to make any nagging remarks about him being on his phone (also box-shaped) as much as I usually do. I'm not sure he noticed that one, but I think I'll stick to it : )
This weeks assignment is to say yes to your husband as much as possible.
As long as what he suggests is "not immoral, illegal, or life-threatening, say yes."
The author addresses the possible issue of your husband being afraid to ask you for anything because he is used to getting shot down by your predictable answer of no.
If this is the case in your relationship, offer to do that one thing he used to ask of you.
Make your yes more believable by telling him you already freed up your schedule to make time for him.
Make the first move and offer to go on a run with him, watch that movie with him, or work on the yard with him.
It's not too late to join me in better loving the men in our lives. Will you try this at least once with me?
Are you totally lost and have no idea what I'm talking about? Read about it here.
