"My Husband Rocks"Friday

Friday, February 6, 2009

I've said it before - I'm no housewife.

It's not that I don't want to be. I mean there is that very small part of me that would love to wake up every morning before the sun rises, put an apron on, cook a hot breakfast for the family, blah blah blah... and that's when I wake up from my nightmare.

It's just not me. At all. I have to make myself do laundry. And dishes. And pick up the house. And the bathroom. Because I love my family and I do have some ounce of decency and I don't like to (and will not) live in filth.

But I work full-time, go to the gym several times a week right after work, haul children to activities, participate in my own activities... so you can see that there just isn't much time to be June Cleaver.

Here is where I stop talking about how lame of a wife I am and start telling you how great my husband is.

Joey never makes me feel like all of those things that I just typed. I make myself feel them all the time, but he certainly doesn't. Instead, while I was at a meeting with a client (shameless plug - see this!!) on Saturday morning and then taking Ashton to her volleyball game, Joey was cleaning the house.

Top to bottom.

I came home and it smelled like Mr. Clean had been there - but with hair. I couldn't have been happier.

It was the perfect day.

That does sound like the perfect day! My husband does a lot of wonderful things, but mostly the cleaning gets left to me! And I don't get it done often enough!! Have a great weekend.

How awesome is that! I love it when I come home and my hubby has started our joint weekly cleaning by himself.

THE Stephanie
I’m Stephanie - wife to one extremely handsome cop; mother to two extremely silly kids. The hubs and I have been married since February ’99. I love him more each day and simply can’t get enough of him. My daughter, Ashton, is 12 going on 17. She’s beautiful, creative, smart, and oh, so sassy. Taylor, our son, is 8 and is so much like his daddy it’s scary. He makes me laugh all the time with the silly things he says and does. He won’t remember what you told him 5 minutes from now, just like his daddy. I love to laugh and spend time with friends and family. I’ve also recently discovered a love for cooking and enjoy sharing recipes. I love finding new blog friends, so be sure to leave a comment so I can do the same!
