View Full Version : Are husbands ever sweet?

I see a lot of posts about frustrating husbands, and believe me, mine can be really frustrating too!!! (I have never seen him use the vacuum or dust. Ever.) But last night he did he sweetest thing. I was having a really stressful week and he knows how much I love potatoes and he cooked me my own POTATO DINNER. Can you believe this?!?! Mashed potatoes, scalloped potatoes and baked potatoes!
TRUST ME. This is like a once in a millennium thing. Usually I am doing sweet things for him. I think it's because I'm a woman and my mind is just wired that way.
But I'd like to hear... do your husbands ever do any incredibly sweet things for you?

My husband never ever ever remembers things that I mention that I'd like for Christmas or birthdays (ie. new slippers, a cozy robe...) even though he asks each year. BUT this year for my 30th birthday he surprised me with a Polish amber bracelet. I don't wear jewelry very often, except for my wedding rings, but I have always loved amber. When ever my husband and I are out at craft shows or art festivals I always end up gravitating towards the artisans that incorporate amber into their work. So all on his own my sweet husband took our 3 kids, found a local jewelry maker, and picked out a Polish amber bracelet all by himself... That should last him a good couple of years :)

Funny-I just posted on the frustrating hubby thread. I used to be frustrated with my X. But my life is different now with my fiancee.
He is really good about reading me. I am a very big one on not telling him what I need.....I think he should know. And he is very attentive to my weird querks.
If he senses that I have had a rough week/day with our 3 children (2 girls 10 & 9 and a nb son 16 weeks) he does the sweetest thing. He will go run a bath with bubbles and light candles and say, "go relax in your bath....I will take care of everything." It makes me melt and I spend a hour soaking and shaving my legs and just relaxing.
He is a excellent daddy, even with my girls, who aren't biologically his BUT he tells everyone that he has 3 children and he treats them like they are his. He is a sweet, sweet man. Everything he does if for us. He is selfless.
With that said, he does drive me nuts sometimes. He is my bestfriend but sometimes he can eerk me as well. There are just more up times then down. I am all about praising when it is good and I don't point out the bad. They are far and few between anyway.
But I will say, YES! They are sweet, when they wanna be. lol

I just started a new thread complaining about my husband, but that is actually really rare. He is a great man. As mad as I am tonight-he has always supported what I have wanted to do-he spent the last two months at home with our son and I feel so lucky to have a man that is willing to stay at home (and get up at night). I think my son is even more blessed because Daddy takes such an interest in him, even at such a young age (no waiting for him to be able to start t-ball)!

I'm with the other moms. I have my moments with my husband being too insensitive for his own good, but for the most part he amazes me every chance he gets. I was sick this week, and took a whole day to sleep while my daughter was at daycare and husband was at work. When he got home from work, even though he had a long day (especially compared to mine!) he took charge with our daughter and told me to head upstairs to bed. I told him I wasn't tired, so he told me to cuddle up with a book then. He took care of bath time, bedtime, and even cleaned up before he went to bed himself! And just last week, after I bit his head off for a stupid reason, HE brought ME three bouquets of flowers just to put a smile on my face! :) They can be total pains, but they usually find ways to remind us why we love them in the first place.
Great thread by the way! Its good to hear the good side!!

I have to admit my husband too gets on my nerves sometime but he really is the sweetest guy. We met on Friday, the 13 in Oct in 2000. We don't have a lot of money but he manages to get pretty creative one time he made me 13 flowers out of colored napkins and wrote 13 reasons why he loves me, another time he made a collage of the kids and I. He is a very open person and really knows how to communicate with me. I feel like I am a better person for having him in my life. We have been through a lot (mainly me) but has stuck by my side the whole time!!

No sweet stories about my husband right now....we're having marital problems, but he is a sweet husband. I think what's the sweetest is how he fights for our marriage.
But let's go back two months ago...
My husband never officially proposed to me (it was me who proposed), so my parents bought us wedding bands for our wedding anniversary. Our rings were late and I made a note to call the jeweler the next day. I got home that night and my husband met me at the door. He walked me into a dark apartment with only a few candles lit. It was than that he dropped on one knee and proposed to me. What a dh!!!!!

This thread spoke to me and made me realize I probably take my wife for granted too often. Right now she's staying home taking care of our 3-week old son Will and I'm at work. Since I'm a writer and a new parent, my newspaper let me start up a blog for fathers called "The Daddy Files."
I'm hoping some of you on this thread will read it, comment if you'd like and also pass it on to your husbands/boyfriends. I write from a first-time Dad's point of view so I know full well we don't always get it. But maybe if you read some of this blog, you'll understand that we're not always as distant as you think we are.
Anyways, feel free to give me any advice. I clearly need it.
