My husband James and I have three children, ages 2, 5, and 7. One evening, I announced that we would have an “everything in the wrong place” dinner where we would dress crazy. Pants on your head. Mismatched socks. You get the picture.
My husband’s crazy outfit took the cake. He came to dinner wearing a string of diapers across his chest, like he was a Rambo dad. Fully loaded with diaper ammunition! It was hilarious.
My first thought was, “Is this what a grown man has to do to get attention around here?”
It’s so easy to let our husbands fade in the background while our needy (and loud) children take up the majority of our time and attention. Father’s Day is a great time to let our husbands know, “I see you! You are my hero!”
Why not cook up something fun for him to remember Father’s Day with a smile? Something better than a tie or even a power tool – the gift of yourself!
It doesn’t take any new research or an opinion poll to know that a man’s number one need is sexual fulfillment. In Dr. Willard Harley’s book, His Needs, Her Needs: Building an Affair-proof Marriage, he says the first thing a husband can’t do without is sexual fulfillment. “Affection is the environment of the marriage, sex is the special event,” says Harley.
To get your brain moving in the right direction, here are three ideas that are absolutely free and are sure to please your man:
Send your husband a sexy invitation. For instance, you could write a note like, “You’re invited to a special time of lovemaking for the best husband and father in the whole world. Come to bed a little early, 7 pm on Sunday night. The kids are going to grandmas, wink wink.”
Bring some flavor into the bedroom. Try spicing up your love life by adding some ingredients from your Father’s Day barbeque to the bedroom. Your husband will enjoy eating barbeque sauce, honey, or other sweet things off your body.
Give your husband love coupons. One coupon could say, “Good for a massage and lovemaking.” Another could say, “You pick the outfit tonight.”
Okay, which idea are you going to try – or what idea do you have to contribute?
