My husband is the best ~ my apologies to all you women out there!
Whenever we have company I get a little uptight. I want to ensure that everyone likes the meal and the house is clean and the kids are clean and, well, maybe I seek perfection a bit too much.
Unfortunately, things rarely go smoothly on days we are having extra people for dinner. I have a tendency to believe in my Wonder Woman powers during the planning phase, then reality strikes and I become quite aware of my shortcomings.
As usual, Shannon rises to the occasion.
Shannon typically oversees the after-dinner cleanup, he seems to think I am a bit scattered in this department. But when the cleanup is extra large, say after a large gathering, he takes over EVERYTHING!
I love it.
I feel so valued ~ it actually alleviates the preparation stress as well.
He reinforces that we are a team....obviously we are....but he makes me really feel it.
