The proper care and feeding of husbands

According to my mom, and Dr. Laura, author of the book The Proper Care and Feeding of Husbands,men are basically very easy to manage. Just throw enough sex and food their way, and they're content.

The first time my mother threw this advice at me I was a bit shocked. Mostly because it concerned Sex, and second of all because I felt it was a bit demeaning to men. But when I told my hubby about my mom's advice, he smiled happily and said: 'She's got a point!'

So now, whenever I want to to give my hubby a treat, I put on this fancy negligé and some high heels. And then I totter to the kitchen and I bake him a pot roast.

Because I like my eight hours a night.

  1. Haha!!! This is so true! All it takes to keep my hubby happy are sex and food too. All it takes for me on the other hand is coffee and quiet time. 😉

    Hopping over from the Tuesday Blog Trail! I'd love it if you would stop by my blog to say hi! 🙂 Have a great day!

  2. I love the advice your mom and Dr. Laura gave you. It is funny and I agree, has some truth to it. I have been happily married to my sweetheart for 33 years now. My hubby also likes to be praised when he helps with housework. We think it is amusing that I am ALWAYS doing work around the house and that he feels like he has done something huge when he empties the dishwasher and makes the bed. Maybe I spoiled him too much but it is OK.

    I am following today from the 3Four and Under blog hop. My blog is devoted to helpful, hope-filled ideas for overwhelmed families.

    I look forward to exploring your site.

  3. I love the "Because I like my 8 hours a night" LOL Loved this post...I own Proper Care and Feeding of Husbands as well as Proper Care and Feeding of Marriage and they are both right on. Dr. Laura knows what's up and the husbands (usually) concur. 🙂
