💡Husband Hack #7 💡—💙Leave an unexpected note for your wife to cheer her up during a stressful week.
Example: I left a post-it note 📝 on the bedside dresser on my spouse’s phone. Included with the note was a small piece of chocolate 🍫.
🔷I have learned that showing simple and spontaneous gestures of love toward my wife go a long way.
🔷You don’t need to over complicate things when it comes to surprising your spouse. The key is following through on those random acts of kindness.
💡Husband Hack 19💡—💙Use your natural skills to show love towards your spouse. Do something creative and unique for them.
Example: I am a storyteller and writer. My wife is an avid reader—she loves fiction books and especially Harry Potter.
🔷 I started telling a whimsical take on the marker board in our kitchen. Real simple. A paragraph or two at a time. This unique gift is helpful in making the best of us working different schedules.
💡Husband Hack #58 💡—💙If your wife tells you not to play video games because it is the kids bedtime (she is out doing errands or having a girls’ night), keep in mind two things:
1️⃣ Listen to your wife. Happy wife= happy life! 😉
2️⃣ Be creative—you can still get the kids ready for bed while having fun! See example below 👇
Wife: Matt, remember the kids need to be in bed by 8:00 pm. You can’t play Mario Kart with them now.
Me: Okay! Got it. I won’t “play” video games. [I need kids their bedtime snack, brush their teeth, play a YouTube video of the Dr. Mario Championship match on the the background with subtitles and low volume to prevent kids from being distracted.]
✅ Kids in bedtime on time. 🙌
✅ Brushed up on my SNES Dr. Mario 💊skills and learned new strategies!
💊 I enjoy Dr.Mario because I am a puzzle nerd and I love Mario Kart because it is an easy game to play with my 8 year old!
