Thank Your Spouse Day

As reigning Froggymama I officially declare today to be "Thank Your Spouse Day!"

Why, you ask? Because while scrubbing the shower, FD called. I was annoyed that the phone was ringing, and I was up to my elbows in softscrub.

When he asked what I was doing and I gave him my bitchy list - sterilizing nebulizer equipment, scrubbing the bathroom, vacuuming the rugs, swiffering the floors, etc, etc. He said, "Thank you for all you do."

And just like that I felt appreciated. It's amazing how with that one kind acknowledgement, I turned from crabby overwhelmed mama to energetic, positive wife and mama. So call your spouse, or partner and tell them "thank you" for all they do.

It's so true. When Harry says "you are such a good mother. I love that you..." it buys weeks of good feelings.

Would you PLEASE stop being such a better person than me?! It's really, truly not good for my ego. :-)

Thank you for this....A great reminder of how to keep priorities in line.
