Dear Dr. Laura,
I try to practice being my husband’s girlfriend every day. We have two daughters, 2 years and 8 months. Sometimes it is hard for us to connect after the girls are in bed.
My husband has been having a particularly hard week at work so today I sent him this text.
Me: Baby, how close are you to being home?
Him: I’m going to leave in a little while, what’s up?
I’m sure he was expecting me to ask him to stop at the store to grab something, or to tell him about something we needed to do when he got home. Instead I sent this…
Me: Dang, I was hoping you were close. I was going to set the girls up with a movie and a snack and meet you in the bedroom…
Not 30 seconds passed before he replied, “I’m leaving now.”
I know after a long, hard day at work, it takes a tiny act of flirtatiousness to get him in a great mood for us at home. He is my hero and I am glad to be his wife. Thank you for inspiring me to be my kid’s mom and my hubby’s girlfriend.
