Last week, I was blog surfing and came across a blog where someone mentioned doing this 30-Day Husband Encouragement Challenge. I am always looking for ways to keep our marriage fun and lively, so I decided to give it a shot! My disclaimer in posting this is that I do believe that we mamas work very hard and our jobs are often overlooked as easy or unimportant, etc. But that is not the point of this challenge -- it's just to encourage our husbands and learn to be more positive in general. The challenge also has a 1950's Leave It To Beaver feel, but I could overlook that part for the sake of this little experiment.
I am normally not a nag [note from Dan - she's never a nag. And how many wives would let their husbands get tattoos, and buy a Harley Davidson?], so that part of the challenge was easy, but I don't always gush about how awesome my husband is [note from Dan: I am really awesome!] to him as often as I should. I wanted to go all 30 days without telling him that I was doing the challenge. But I only made it to Day 6. After I told Dan I was doing it, I asked him if he wanted me to keep doing it. He said, YES!, he loved it and asked if I could do the 365 day Challenge [Note from Dan: you have to admit, the 365 day challenge is a great idea].
If any of you decide to do this, too, keep me posted on the results!
