being a better wife

Do you ever do anything special to try to be a better wife for you husband, or SO? My husband works so hard, and does it all for us. I do appreciate him, but I wonder if I show/tell him that enough. He works crazy hours so I can be a SAHM, and we have 4 kids, he is a wonderful dad. Everything he does is for us.

What do you do for your husband/so to show you really appreciate him?

  • I use to before he became such a grouch and talking down to me.

    when he changes his attitude, I will start again.

  • I don't think I go above and beyond. I make sure the house is clean, dinner is made, kids are happy. As long as I allow him to play his video games without my complaining and have cold Pepsi in the fridge for him, well, then he's a happy camper.
    I used to buy him little gifts and stuff or tuck notes into his lunch (when I used to pack it) but he doesn't seem to appreciate little gestures like that so I stopped.

  • I just try to do a good job around the house and make sure everything is the way he likes it, if he has a preference. I let him do the things he wants to do when he gets home, whether it be video games or extra work. I try to make sure he isn't bothered while he's busy, and I don't nag him about the trash, even if it's been sitting there for a few days. I listen to anything he has to say; I rub his back as he's falling asleep; I help him out with his work if he needs it...anything I can think of.

  • I try to give mine what he needs to be happy. My husband wants to be accepted for who he is/ adored and loved, he wants to know what I want/need without drama so he can give it to me, and he likes food and sex. He wants consistancy. So I work to give him these things everyday.

  • I keep his house clean, I keep him fed well and I keep his penis down. LOL

    Also I make sure dinner is ready, I pack his lunches for work and send little notes in them, I make his favorite cookies or dessert, I rub his back or feet. You get the idea
