Husband Awesomeness...
#Monday Listicles

When I told G this week’s Listicles topic “10 Ways Your Partner is Awesome” courtesy of The Bonny Bard his response was “only 10” followed by something along the lines of “well you’re going to write whatever you want anyways so why bother asking”. He had a point.



About a month ago G and I decided to gung out the back storage room. Amid all the junk I came across a few jewels from my past. Does anybody else remember 45’s???  And what about the little plastic insert you needed in order to play those 45’s?  Not sure who came up with THAT idea?!?  Anyways…I digress.




The reason I brought it up was I decided to put a spin (did you see what I did there…tee hee) on this week’s topic and go with a Side A and Side B to why G is awesome. Ready aaaannnd play:

1.      He lets me do all the cooking.
2.      He cleans up the aftermath.

3.      He lets me do all the laundry.
4.      He irons. For those who do not know what that is…a pic of an iron is over there on the right only now-a-days I hear they actually just plug in so are much easier to use.



5.      He lets me buy artificial plants for the garden because I hate dirt/bugs and my thumb is anything but green.
6.      He weeds and preps the flower beds for my artificials annuals.


7.      He lets me decide what to cook.  Every. Single. Night.
8.      He eats whatever I cook.  Every. Single. Night.


9.      He let me break-in introduce Riley (when he was younger) to new activities/routines. G had an even thinner skin than I did when we first started our adventures in Riley World. Perhaps it was my inner mama bear coming out that made the transition for me a little easier…wait. Who am I kidding? I am just way more awesome than G.  :)
10.   He takes Riley to most activities (especially the early morning ones) or on adventures so I can go grocery shopping  cook  have some time to myself. OK…guess he can be awesome sometimes too.  


Don't forget to pop over to read about everyone else's partner's awesomeness. Oi...that was an eye full.

Oh BTW...our hostess with the mostest Stasha was selected as the first EVER "Instaparent of the Month"!!! Couldn't think of a better choice. Congratulations Stasha!!! Be sure to check out the article on Babble.

Have a great week!

  3. I have used that same mama bear in a post. Her face just gets the point across doesn't it. Love #1&2. I get to do it all. And on the rare occasion the situation is reversed THEN of course its like your #1 & 2. ;-)

  4. Wow, that is really awesome that he takes your son to early morning activities. Seriously! Also love that he eats whatever you cook every night. That's on my list today too :)

    1. Yes...thankfully he is more of a morning person than I am. Then again I don't have a late afternoon nap EVERY. DAY!!! :)

  5. Clever way to create your list! There's always a flip side to our partner's awesome and not so awesome traits, isn't there?

    1. Decided I better give him credit for "some" of his good qualities if I wanted him to keep doing the few that he does. Ooops...that sounded a little ummmm bitter. ;P

  6. This was an awesome take on the list, love the two sides of everything!!

    1. Sometimes more than two sides but decided to stop there before getting myself all worked up into a tizzy. Haha!

  7. My husband "lets" me do all those things too! But he does let me sleep in on Saturday, so I can't complain too much.

    1. Well aren't you a lucky one too! :)

      I complain...a LOT...but nobody listens. Tee hee.

  8. that's an iron?
    hm, who knew. My dad's in the back of his car...in his golf bag. :)

    my hubby will prep the garden for me too. except I have real plants - which he then knows Leave Them Alone.

    1. In my defence...our yard is VERY shaded so growing "real" plants is extremely difficult. And did you know in the summer they need to be watered daily...somes TWICE a day!!! Who has time for THAT?!?!?

  9. Someone has to be the peanubutter to your jelly! Sounds like you two are a smash together :)

    1. No he doesn't drink nearly as much as me. Oh. Wait. Right. Misread it as "get smashed together". Baaahaaahaaa! ;P

  10. ohhhh - that was a nice twist on the list. I especially liked:

    "7. He lets me decide what to cook. Every. Single. Night.
    8. He eats whatever I cook. Every. Single. Night."

    If only my guy wasn't so picky...I SCREAM every time I make a gourmet meal and he covers it in hot sauce. Drives me nuts.

    1. I actually like to cook. It's the deciding WHAT to cook that drives me crazy and I get no help from the family. :(

  11. G sounds so much like the Hubs!

    ReplyDelete
  12. Sounds a lot like my list :-) Although I mostly "get" to cook and also "get" to do the dishes. We also have something else in common, my son has a tic disorder too, I blog about that, and other completely unrelated stuff. I will definitely check you out!

    1. I find deciding what to make the hardest part and in 20+ years of marriage he has learnt so not make any 'negative' comments. Haha!

  14. Clever twist on the list! I was going to so a smart ass one and say things like "he makes sure I NEVER have to walk into a dark room etc."
