I am confident that Aaron and I are doing at least one thing right in our parenting. We may fail at many other things, but this one thing is going strong. I know that my kids will know that their daddy loves their mommy so much and loves to be with her. The other day we were leaving for small group and a babysitter was coming so we were explaining to big boy that Ms. Amanda was coming over to watch him while we were gone. He then asked daddy if he was taking mommy on a date. How cute! He knows that daddy often takes mommy on dates!
If you don't know how wonderful Aaron is to me, here is an example – he does ALL the grocery shopping! Yes, he does all the major stuff. It is wonderful. I guess since he does most of the cooking he would be the ideal candidate for the shopping! Often times on his grocery trips he will bring me flowers home. Tonight at dinner Big Boy was talking about the flowers. He told me that daddy brought me flowers because he loves you! My heart nearly melted. He knows that Daddy loves Mommy!
So, to my future daughter-in-law's we are trying our hardest to raise men who love Jesus, and adore and respect their wives with all that is in them. I know that my boys are getting a great first hand demonstration of that on a weekly basis!
Aaron I love you!
This is so sweet! We tried the I cook, you shop thing and it was a complete failure. You’re right, it’s better if one person does it all. But I so do not want it to be me!!!
I think this is so important for our boys. I was reading someone’s blog today who was raised by a single mom and was taught basically that all men are bad and shouldn’t be trusted. I think that makes it double important for us to show our boys how to be Godly men and husbands. So if they do marry a girl raised like this one, they will and she love her and she will love his leadership. Fortunately the author of the blog I read came to submit to her husband as the Bible instructs us–all because her husband loved her the way Christ loved the church. Sooooo important for them to learn it young!! Thanks for doing your part!!
Wow, that is sweet! And I think about my sons’ future wives a lot, too… I pray for them that they are safe & protected… they are my daughters that I look forward to finally meeting someday. And I pray that I have done my best raising wonderful future husbands! It’s awesome when they have such a good example in their father.
I feel the same way Steph does on the subject. Great and wonderful post!
