Don't Forget Your Husband This Christmas
What about our husbands?
How "bright" will this season be for them?
While we are marching our little wooden soldiers about town to hit every activity that is sure to make this the most wonderful time of the year for them, our husbands are most likely heading to work every morning and getting home after darkness has fallen (why do we save daylight, again?).
This year, in addition to the Advent countdown I am doing with the kids, I am also doing one for Brian. It isn't extensive or expensive and doesn't cover each and every day of the month, but it is sure to bring a smile to his face throughout the month.
What types of things can you do for him?
How about putting a favorite candy bar that he rarely gets for himself into his lunch box with a little note using the name of the candy in a cute pun. (For example, Day 2 for Brian was a Snickers bar with a note saying "Thanks for always making me Snicker." Corny, I know.)
How about putting a message in his lunchbox to let him know that he can expect a "special" evening after the kids go to bed. Let him think of that all day!
Maybe, once the kids are down for the night or after dinner if there are no kids in your situation, you can step out to the porch for a cup of coffee, tea, or hot chocolate and some talk time.
Take him to your favorite coffee shop for an hour.
Play a card game with him.
Sit and watch a sporting event of his choice..... and actually watch with him!
Buy a song he has been wanting and download it for him.
It's not too late to start!
Let this season not only be for the kids, but for your Honey, too!
