Valentine’s Day is Sunday. Chocolates, roses, and diamonds are nice, but as moms these things aren’t at the top of our want list. Let’s be honest, these five things are what your wife really wants this Valentine’s Day.
A Clean House
There is cereal on the floor, dishes in the sink, dog hair on the sofa, and TOYS everywhere. She’s tired of cleaning and she’s DONE cleaning after everyone else. Hire mom a maid or kick her out of the house and do it yourself. Either way, clean the house. Trust us, this will get you laid faster than a dozen roses!
You know what happens when you say you’re going to bed? You go to bed. When your wife says she’s going to bed, she still has to pack lunches, clean the house, wait for the kids to fall asleep. You get the idea. She hasn’t slept a full night since her 8th month of pregnancy. Let the woman SLEEP! Bonus points if you take the kids out of the house or you get her a hotel room to herself!
This is what makes her not kill you. This is also what makes her supermom. It also makes her smile and get through the day because remember she hasn’t slept in years. Learn her favorite coffee drink and surprise her with it! Then take the money you are going to spend on roses and get her a gift card so she can treat herself all month long.
Pee In Peace
If it’s not the kids, it’s the pets. Seriously, I have had an audience when I pee for the last 14 years. I don’t even remember the last time I actually peed in peace. So this weekend, when she goes to the bathroom, keep everyone OUT. If she takes 30 minutes, it’s ok, she’s earned it.
Empty Laundry Basket
Well this is just a pipe dream. It’s NEVER going to happen. But OMG an empty laundry basket for more than an hour would make her year, heck it may even make her decade! I’m not sure how you are going to make this happen unless everyone is naked all weekend or wears the same clothes until Monday. But if you do, she’ll love you for it.
Oh and since she probably doesn’t want to make dinner either, may we suggest on of these New Orleans Slow Cooker Recipes?
