with Angella Dykstra
I'm a mom of three, a professional accountant, and an amateur photographer and writer. I am not a marriage expert. But my husband and I take "Til death do us part" seriously, and here I'll be sharing how we keep our marriage strong while we both do that insane work-life juggle.
Check out my Work It, Mom! profile and my blog, Dutch Blitz.
There are a number of things that are supposed to be the way to make your wife swoon. Flowers, chocolates, cleaning the house, cooking dinner (or taking her out for dinner), writing her notes, telling her nice things, and many others. Those are all fine and good, and they all make me feel loved (especially the nice words), but the one thing that is bound to make most women swoon is this:
Be a great Dad to your kids.
My husband has been a great Dad since Day One. He would get up and rock a fussy baby, he changed diapers, he mediated bath times. He taught all three kids how to ride bikes and has spent multiple hours kicking soccer balls, shooting hoops, and firing hockey pucks. He’s also been seen playing Barbies with our daughter. He spends time with our kids one-on-one, and with all of us as a family. He reads stories, he makes jokes, he tucks our kids in and prays with them at bedtime. He even goes clothes shopping for them. (I KNOW.)
His most recent accomplishment was pertaining to the Father-Daughter night at the girls’ club our daughter attends. The theme was medieval and he secured himself a costume from the tickle trunk at the church. He then headed to Value Village in order to find a dress for our daughter and succeeded. It is the shiniest, prettiest, most PERFECT dress for the occasion and she’s been twirling in it non-stop.
Does your husband make you weak in the knees when he’s being a great Dad?
