I normally lurk a lot around here. But the way my husband has been treating me lately needs to be posted. I have a rough work schedule. I normally work 4 day shifts in a row, then come back for a night shift. I'm a nurse so my 12 hour shifts are normally 12 1/2 or 13 hours in real time. So basically i work 5 in a row, have a couple days off. Come back for a random day, a couple days off then starts all over again.
Needless to say, when i get off of work, i'm tired. I need to eat, shower, and basically get to sleep. No time for housework. I love my job, but i know its hard on hubby when i am away for so long.

So a couple days ago, i come home and hubby is using the vaccume, has the mop out, dishes are done, food is on the table and 2 loads of laundry are washed and dried. ( i folded them, but you have to give him credit). I did not nag or ask him to clean. When i asked what all this was for, his response was, "you worked all day, it needed to be done, you shouldn't have to do everything around here". I wanted to cry. I also wanted to point out that he works all week too, (9 hour days, and 5 on friday).

The next day he mowed the lawn, cleaned the dogs kennels (yuk), scrubbed toilets, dusted, and took out the trash. All after his work day.

And yesterday, i called to say it was going to be a late night,(i had to stay to chart) and not to wait on me to eat. I come home to my husband waiting on me with or food on the table, still warm so we can have dinner together. He waited. And he is one of those guys that HAS to eat. Lol.

To top it off, he looked up the development of the baby on his phone and was telling me about what is happening this week and next week with Bailey's growth. He even asked me if i was "quickening" yet. Lol. He also asked if i was feeling dizzy or constipated right now. Lol. He has been so sweet and caring and i love how involved he is with fining out whats going on with our little one.
After all that, he is helping to clean out baby's room and change his office to a guest room. He is nesting already!

I think sometimes we forget how hard it is for our SO. Feel free to post. Brags about your bf or dh to show your appreciation for them.

Wow!! That is awesome. Sounds like he is trying really hard to let you know how much he loves and appreciates you(and baby). That is wonderful! My hubby is pretty great too but he could still use a lot of tips from your man.
