Does your dh/so

bring your child gifts home after work? my dd loves gifts even if it a picture you drew of a flower. my dh called and asked me if i thought if she would like flowers. so hes brining her home flowers hes very big on treating od dds good so they know how a man treats a woman. i know it comes from men treating his mother bad. so i love him for doing little things every blue moon for them. maybe two months ago he got both of them a ring pops and they loved it. but i was wondering how many other men do this?

  • My husband isn't home very often but when he does come, he always has a gift for all of us.

    I remember when I was a child my dad would occasionally bring my brother and I a bag of candy home on pay day. (We were dirt poor so when we saw him waving a bag of M&M's out the car window, it was something special.)

  • It's not an everyday thing, but when a new movie comes out on blu ray or he knows they have been extra good, or while potty training. I think he likes doing it so they know, even while he is at work, he is thinking of them. We have some good men!! :)

  • My dh does but not all the time. He doesnt believe in bringing something home regularly even for me haha. He will though maybe once a month or so bring her home something special. He also does other things with her that was so cute and I dont know many men who do them with their dd. Shes in cheer and he is so proud of her, he will help her with stunts and routines. He makes sure she knows and believes she is all that and than some.

  • That is SO VERY SWEET!!!! I can't say that DH does buys me little trinkets all the time but I don't think it has ever occured to him to bring DD anything lol...he takes her with him on errands whenever he can though, she loves spending that extra time with him but no he doesnt bring her things home.

  • Your husband is a very wise man. My dad never went anywhere that he didn't bring us children some little treat. He was a farmer so trips to town didn't happen every day, maybe only once every week or two, but he always remembered us. My husband was good about such things, too, and I think it's a great way to teach girls especially what a real man looks like!

  • my dh does bring them things home occassionally.

    My boys 4&5 will say, "mommy, when I go to the store with daddy, I am going to
    buy you flowers."
