Who's Your Daddy?


My love for my husband, George, has remained steadfast over the years. If anything, it's grown stronger since having a child. What I find sexy about him has changed though:

1) Having my back soaped in the shower was great, but it's sexier when he puts a lather on the dishes in the sink now.

2) Buff abs used to turn me on. Now, a spit shine on the kitchen table puts me over the moon.

3) I used to wait for his calls. Now, it's sexy when he calls the babysitter and surprises me with some time for the two of us.

4) Partying into the wee hours was one of our things. Now, there's nothing lovelier than snuggling into bed together at 10PM.

5) We used to sleep in together in the morning. Now, I love it when he gets up early with Claire and lets me sleep in all alone.

6) Being wined and dined by candlelight used to light my fire. Now, I like it when he wakes up early to make his two favorite girls banana-walnut pancakes.

7) His kisses are warm, but nothing makes me warmer than watching him love our daughter.

8) I still like it when he says, "I love you". But hearing him say "I love you, Claire" is the best of all.

Happy Valentines Day to the best husband a gal could ask for!

  2. Awww! This is so sweet! And number five is the best. My husband does that too, and I think it's the best sleep I get all week. <3

  9. I hope that you told your husband about your post. Can't hurt to get what you want for Valentines Day.

    You have me wondering how old a "geriatric mother" is. I'm 41 and my kids just turned three. I feel really old sometimes.

  11. First of all- at first glance I thought your meme were two whales. Which brings me to the second point of enjoying your list but not remembering my exes doing any of the things listed- maybe because it's been so long since my trio were little or maybe because they never did and that's why they're now exes... ; ) Glad ya got a good one.

    1. That's too funny, BB! Glad they're exes then!

  12. I thought it was whales too!

    Isn't it funny how things change once you've been together for a long time and have had kids? I still love my husband like crazy, but what I consider sexy now has sure changed a lot too!

    I'm the bad wife-I didn't write about my husband for Vday.

  13. That is the sweetest post ever! I kinda wish my husband would make me breakfast occasionally. :( I sound very whiny right now. What I find sexy has definitely changed for me too.

  15. Beautiful post! So many people fall out of love when a child comes along, it's beautiful to see how your love has grown even more so after you had your daughter. Kudos to you and your hubby! :)

    1. Aw, thanks, Natasha. We've had some 'adjustments' that have weighed on our marriage since having a child, but we have weathered the storm and are better for it!
