My husband is the greatest! I know every woman says that but let me repeat myself, MY HUSBAND IS THE GREATEST!!! You see my husband is one of those guys I think every woman should be jealous of. He cooks, he cleans, he changes diapers, he does bath and bedtime, he even makes breakfast every Saturday morning and lets me sleep in…you could say he’s the whole package. But let me rub it in even more:

When I say he cooks I don’t mean he can whip up some Hamburger Helper or simply knows his way around a grill. I mean you could set him in any kitchen and he would be able to create a gourmet meal out of whatever he finds. One night I was running late to an event and told him to make the toddler some dinner. Instead of heating up some frozen chicken nuggets (which is what I would have done) he made some type of gourmet pasta dish with frozen peas, Little Smokies sausage, and parmesan in an olive oil sauce. It was DELICIOUS!

To add to the amazing cooking skills he also cleans up after himself. In fact, I would dare to say he cleans better than I do. Although it may take him longer to change a diaper you can be sure that diaper is perfectly centered and there will be no leakage or blow outs. And let’s just talk about bath time, I can’t recall the last time I bathed my kids! He is always is willing to pitch in the minute he gets home from work whether that’s cooking dinner or taking the kids off my hands. Thankfully he is also very understanding and compassionate. He knows how much I love my sleep and ever since our first son was born he has taken him for some father son time every Saturday morning to let me sleep in. Now with two boys he is juggling them like a pro.

Although there are so many reasons why I love my husband there is one that surpasses them all, he is the best Dad to my kids I could have ever imagined.

Happy Fathers Day Honey!

    Mineis amazing for being my rock during two cesarean deliveries- putting his fear and anxiety aside to deal with mine.

    • What a great Hubby! I have to admit I really enjoyed the close bonding you get with your husband during the delivery process. It’s such a special time for the two of you.

    A man i am seeing is like your husband. He cooks (and may i say his meals are fantastic), cleans, cuts my sons hair, very generous, sweet, wonderful possession and takes and interest in my children who are teenagers. He is everything i want in a man. He is like perfect. My daughter said he is like a man Mary Poppins.
