What can I do?

My hubby has been out of town for a week spending time with his parents. My son and I stayed home because he had the TAKS (standardized testing) test this week and couldn't miss school. I have been very busy this week and when he called each night I have been some what distracted while we were talking. Last night he asked if I even missed him. I told him of course I did.. but he said it feels like I havent even wanted to talk to him. This really wasnt the case, I have just been really busy with fundraising for the 3 day, and a bunch of other things. But now I feel kind of bad. We will be picking him up from the airport tomorrow and I was thinking about doing something special to show him we did miss him.. but what? Do you ladies have any suggestions? I just want to show him we did miss him and that he is important to us. Any ideas are appreciated. (house is clean and yard is done, I am looking for other ideas) Thanks!!

  • Send the kid to a babysitter and show up at the airport wearing nothing but a trench coat. Don't get out of your car if you don't feel comfortable in public like that.

  • Make him a cake. I know it's an old idea, but men always like cake or other sweet foods, and they have some idea that it takes time and shows love.

  • Take him out to dinner, someplace he's not been to yet but possibly wanted to try. Have your son make him a sign that says Welcome Home Dad!

  • I wouldn't send the kids to the babysitter... they've missed each other too.
    I'd have a big banner hanging in the house, with snacks/foods, some balloons and let the kids make some posters saying welcome home, we missed you, so glad you're home etc... and he'll feel like you put a lot of time in to his homecoming maybe and the kids will have fun too :)
    My hubby is gone so much anymore tho that we get used to it so it's no big deal and we talk several times a day while he's gone so if one of us is busy we just call back later but it's good that he's wanting you to miss him :)
