See what CafeMoms are saying about saving time this holiday season..
So, lately the dh and I have been having arguments. But today he called in sick to work so he could help me around the house, because I've been stressed out. He plans on taking tomorrow off as well so I have a bit more of a break.
Yesterday, I nearly burnt down the house because g-pa spilled milk from his potatoes in the oven, and didn't clean it up. So, I cleaned out the oven, taking nearly 3 hours to scrub, and practically chisel the burnt milk from the bottom.
Dh took care of the baby all morning while I cleaned the kitchen and the bedroom. I was feeling a bit overwhelmed by the heat (nearly 80 here and the heat was still on -_-) so I laid down while the baby slept, and dh came in and surprised me with a back rub and leg rub!! He hasn't shown initiative on affection in a good while.
The baby woke up and I was about to get her, and he said "No, I got it." WOW! Again, never showed this much initiative to make my day a bit easier. So, while he played with dd, I got all the laundry caught up on, and found the only mower in the garage that works and mowed the lawn.
I have no idea what I did/said to get this change in him, but I'm not complaining. He's the man of my dreams come true today!
