Yeah, so I know that I’m Simone from The Mum Blog, which in itself says that this blog is either FOR mums or ABOUT mums, however I’ve recently started bringing about a change and well, here’s another instalment of that change. I’ve decided to write a piece that could inspire your husband to put a smile on your face today; if you like it, share it to him. I’m sure he will get the hint (although sometimes, I wonder whether they DO get our hints AT ALL!?! …and you know what I mean when I say that. Hint for a dog and you’ll probably get a cat?!?! Really?!?! ) Anyway, I’m not like a husband hater or anything, I mean I own have my own husband, who is really turning out to be quite sweet recently but I’m just saying; it’s the weekend you know? Don’t us women, deserve to feel a little special? Even if it is by us handing them instructions on a silver platter.. although that is a pet peeve of mine!
Before we begin, I just want you to note that these are pretty much FREE things that you can do. So for those of you that ALWAYS use money as an excuse for not doing anything nice for your other half, suck it up and do this at the very least!
So here we got five things to make your wife smile today:
Get the woman flowers!! No, really, do it! I don’t care whether you buy them, steal them or cut them from your neighbours yard; just give the woman some flowers maaan!
Greet her with a compliment (Guys, please, BE ORIGINAL. Can we not do the most obvious, “Hey Beautiful/ Gorgeous”.) Think of a compliment that you really mean and give it to her.
Don’t do the one thing that you know she hates. You know that thing that you walk through the door and do, that immediately annoys her and she lets it slide silently? Yeah, don’t do that. For today, just skip it. Just. This. Once.
Ask her some questions and ACTUALLY listen to her answers! Please guys, let’s not go for the obvious; “How are you?” because I mean really, I’d slap you through this screen right now if I could! Let’s go for “What did you do today?” or “How was your day?”. I know that these are simple questions, but when she answers your question, ask her more questions based on that. Develop a conversation and give your opinion and listen to hers.. you might be surprised at what a great conversation this could develop into.
Do one UNEXPECTED thing for her today. Women know their husbands well and they know there are certain things that you would NEVER do. Do at least one of those things.
So this one is a bonus that will earn you definite points.
Don’t hit it and leave it. Yeah, you know what I’m talking about.
Sometimes women require some caring and attention. Don’t make it a hit it and leave it situation. A few sweet nothings (hopefully sweet truths), hugs, kisses and caresses before and after will do your woman’s heart a world of good; AND it should put you in her good books FOR DAYS.
Disclaimer: I am no expert. This article is opinion based and if this didn’t work for you; you probably got it wrong anyway (Just kidding!). I’m sure doing these things didn’t put you in the dog box either, so don’t complain okay!
