I HAVE TAKEN THE TIME TO READ ALOT OF ENTRIES CONCERNING SPOUSES THAT DO NOT HELP THEIR LOVED ONES WITH THE ACTIVITES OF EVERYDAY LIFE, INCLUDING HELP RAISING THE KIDS. I WOULD LIKE TO HEAR FROM THOSE WHO CAN APPERCIATE YOUR SPOUSE FOR DOING JUST AS MUCH TO MAKE THE JOB EASIER ON YOU. I HAVE BEEN MARRIED FOR 9 YEARS DATED FOR 1 YEAR. MY MATE IS NOT THE AVERAGE MAN. HE WORKS A FULL TIME JOB, COOKS, CLEAN, RUN ERRANDS, AND ON TOP OF ALL THAT HE IS AN EXCELLENT FATHER. I APPERCIATE THE THINGS HE DOES FOR ME. WE ARE A TEAM THAT WORKS TOGETHER. SOMETIMES WE BOTH GET TIRED FRUSTRATED BUT WE HELP EACH OTHER OUT. ITS NOT EASY FOR EITHER PARTNER BUT WHEN YOU WORK TOGETHER IT MAKES THINGS ALOT BETTER. SO I AM BLESSED TO HAVE A MAN THAT UNDERSTANDS THAT I AM ONLY ONE WOMAN AND VICE VERSA. TAKE TIME TO LET YOUR PARTNER KNOW DAILY THAT YOU APPERCIATE ALL THEY DO. CAN ANYONE RELATE TO THIS?

My husband isawesome also, he works long hours and still makes time for his kids, he makes sure to spend individual time with each one and takes turns with each one when he runs errands. Also he always took turns with middle of the night feedings.
When I had my second I spent a week in the ICU while he was home with a newborn and a 4 year old. He did it all on his own and only had help to come visit me in the hospital. He was also able to talk the nurses into sneaking in my newborn (very against the rules) since I only had a few days with him before I got sick. It was the first time a baby was ever allowed in there.
I would be lost without him, he also will see when I am tired (prego w/ #4) and say take a night off and order pizza, even when he is sick of it.

It's a great idea to post this!

I love my husband. He's my friend. I'm so grateful.

Granted, things aren't always perfect in our relationship, but when you can work together things work much better.

We've been together for 11 years, married for seven (it's our anniversary on Halloween) and we still get along.

He works all day, but will still help out around the house when he gets home if it's necessary. I've said it before, I don't know what I'd do without him.

He's been working 1800 miles away for the past month, so it's been challenging being home with my boys by myself 24/7 without him. We've talked at least every morning and evening since he's been gone. (Kudos to the military moms!!!)

We're always working to be on the same page and help eachother out. He's always supported me in anything I've ever done or ever wanted to do...and still does.

good dads are taken for granite! perfect example today i had a long day with the kids, my hubby worked all day and my youngest son had his 4 month check up/shots.. mama really didnt want to take him (too tired) and even tho dad just walked in, he didnt hesitate when i asked him to go!! i no its a little thing, but its the little things that make a difference!

i am thankful for my husband, who works out of the house, and he appreciates the work I do here at home.I do not expect him to lift a finger around here. He works at building construction,is up at 5 am gets home around 4:30 and comes home exhausted, so how could i expect him to help with things like dishes, changing diapers and all that? He does pitch in now and then when he has the energy, bless his heart but i dont ask for it, because I understand the way things work best !!!!!!!! I think there is a reason that women stayed with kids and men went to work for so many years-because it works!! Call me old-fashioned but I think it just works better... us women are more detail oriented and the men are better at physical labour. But my husband and I are a team because we each do our part to make the home the best it can be. I think the women that complain just need to realize this and not complain what their husbands dont do, but start appreciating them for what they DO!! I used to complain until I stopped myself, sat down and saw things for what they are!! I love my hubby he is a great husband, wonderful father and most importantly a great man!!

Yeh i can. I can totally relate. I might get frustrated with my partner sometimes but he tries his best just like me. I'm a stay at home mom while he's at school getting an education. Its not easy and we arent perfect parent's on either end but we try our best to put a good efford into raising our 8 month old son. I know he depends on us and we need to follow through as a team to raise a resposible caring young man in the future. So i can see where your coming from.
