A lot of people think Todd is a really great guy. Well, to tell you the truth, he is. I could prove it to you right now with a list of all the things that are great about him, but that would just be really annoying. So instead, and since Mother’s Day is this weekend, I’ll just tell you this:
WHY MY HUSBAND IS GOOD AT MOTHER’S DAY
1 – He makes a plan – As much as I want to be in control of my own life and creative and make things happen, I relish those moments when I can just turn my brain off. I schedule Mother’s Day off for my business, no parties, no hours, and for the whole day, Todd take the reigns. When I wake up on Mother’s Day morning it really is my version of Christmas. My husband is excited, my kids are happy and I just get to go along for the ride.
2 – He gets the kids into it – When Todd plans, he includes the kids. They talk about it, keep secrets and generally create a lot of anticipation about giving me a great day. Two years ago, they really had to fight to keep a Mother’s Day bike ride a surprise – especially since it came with a new bike for me. The kids were bursting to share the news!
3 – He includes my Mom – Okay sometimes he leave it a little late and calls her the morning of – but it’s the thought that counts!
4 – He’d do anything to make me smile – Somewhere along the way, Todd got the idea that I’m hard to please. Then one day he bought me roller blades (admittedly it was quite some time ago – they were roller blades) and I was so extremely thrilled that he’d bought me something that I’d never had before, that I never in a million years would have guessed he was going to buy me, and that made me think he must see me as someone way more adventurous and sporty than I generally see myself to be, so he has been challenging himself to top it ever since!
5 – He doesn’t wait ’til Mother’s Day – If Todd throughout the year never told me that he thought I was a great Mom, that I’d done a good job on a crazy day with the kids, that I’m making the kids lives, and his better, I think I would find it harder to believe him when it got to Mother’s Day and he suddenly celebrated me. It’s the fact that he praises my hard work all year that makes Mother’s Day fun and free.
So thanks Todd-o. And about this coming Sunday….no pressure!
