I have another tip for any single girls that read this blog. Here’s a requirement for a future husband –
Make sure he’s willing to change diapers.
It may not sound like a big deal now, but it will be. Wait until you’re sick with the flu, pregnant with another child, or flat out exhausted. Your husband will suddenly take on heroic stature by saying those little words that every mother loves to hear, “I’ll change that stinky diaper for you.”
Last night my husband took on super hero stature in my eyes by delaying his schedule to clean up 2 problems. Two! The first one was a leaky wall and wet rugs. He mopped, he moved furniture, he hung up rugs, and he strategically positioned a fan. The second mess was in the underwear of the 2 year old that is almost potty trained – ‘nough said.
He deserves bonus points because he did not tell me until the messes were cleaned up! There was no coming to me and asking what to do; no trying to help with the other kids while I took care of the 2 year old. He just cleaned up the messes! Hallelujah!
Can’t help lovin’ that man o’ mine!
