Already Awesome Wives
Unlike the other 30 Day Challenges I’ve done, I gave my husband a heads up about this one. Usually I don’t involve/include/inform him of my challenges, because they’re mine to do. But since this involves him and I want to fulfill the tasks to the max, I let him know that the next 30 Days is about him. He said, “finally!” So, let’s go…
Ask “What can I help with you today?”
I had to ask him twice! He finally responded, “Oh. I thought you were being a wiseass.” Welcome to our relationship.
I was ready for him to take advantage of me, asking me for something in the bedroom – if you get my drift. But instead he gave me the most menial task – “Bring the Home Depot gift card to your mom’s” (where we were going to be having dinner later).
Go the whole day without correcting your husband
IMPOSSIBLE! Even he laughed when I told him what today’s task was. We were both stuck at home today, and the only way for me to fulfill this task was to not talk (which is also impossible).
Many times I opened my mouth ready to make a remark and quickly stop myself. But my eyes speak louder than my mouth, so it was really pointless. I tried, I really did! I still consider it the task fulfilled, because we didn’t bicker at all.
Hug your husband three times today.
EASY! We read a long time ago, probably a random Facebook post or something, that you should have skin-to-skin contact every day for at least 10 seconds. Hugging comes naturally to us, and this “study” justified doing it.
The best part about today was – usually when we embrace our kids pretend to act like it makes them uncomfortable. But this morning, when they saw me going in for a hug, they jumped off their seats and joined us! Family hug!!! #blessed
So, I thought that by telling my husband I was doing this challenge and letting him know the daily tasks, he would milk it. But he’s not, and I’m actually a bit bummed. Coincidentally, my mommy friends are having the same experience with their husbands. I think it’s because we’re already such awesome wives. 😝
