Husbands? Yes, I’m talking to you. This post is written especially for you. Consider me your ultimate wing-“man” right now because I am going to tell you exactly what turns your wife on. And I assure you, if you implement any, some, or all (OMG did it just get hot in here?) of these suggestions, your marriage will be filled with much happiness and a whole lot of love.
Now that I’ve got your attention, shut off the game that you’re either watching or playing – sorry, I know you’re doing one of the two so just pause it, okay?! Pay attention!
Sorry that I had to get a little forceful but this is important so treat it that way. I think we are clear but it bears repeating; say any of these things to your wife and you will be rewarded handsomely!
So without further ado, here is the list!
A Mom’s Ultimate Top 10 Turn-Ons:
- Good morning, beautiful. I made you coffee.
Coffee is happiness in liquid form. It’s also our lifeblood as Moms. So, make it, buy it, and serve it often.
- How about I entertain the kids while you go and take a shower?! Take as long as you’d like. I washed your favorite comfy fleece pajamas and socks for you to put on afterward.
Okay that last part is gravy but having the time to shower without little people screaming our name while simultaneously pounding on the door is such a gift.
- The baby just pooped. Don’t get up! I’ll change him.
This one doesn’t really need further explanation but trust me when I say that being able to avoid seeing or smelling poop at least once in a while is a real treat for us.
- I’m going to vacuum the rug now. It looks a little dirty.
If you see something is messy, rest assured we already noticed it. Either we haven’t had a spare minute to clean it ourselves or we just don’t have the energy right now to do it. Either way, you taking care of a noticeable mess means we don’t have to and I cannot stress enough how great that it.
- I put clean sheets on our bed and started a load of laundry.
We don’t get to spoil ourselves too often as Mommies and that is actually something that is totally okay with us. However, we do look forward to the little joys in life and one of those is the feeling of getting into bed after a long day and enjoying clean sheets once in a while. And the laundry pile never seems to dwindle so if you help fight the good fight against dirty laundry it is greatly appreciated.
- I’m sorry. I only made Mac & Cheese for dinner.
Please trust me. If dinner is made, we don’t care what it is. We didn’t have to cook it so it’s automatically delicious. I’m certain, “automatically delicious” would have been Lucky’s slogan had the Lucky Charm’s Leprechaun been a girl. We don’t need dinner to be “magically delicious” by any stretch. Edible is just fine. And for the record, we love Mac & Cheese.
- I know you were up a lot last night with the kids. I’ll take the kids outside to play for a few and you can go take a nap.
We are tired pretty much all of the time. It’s difficult to be Mommy. It’s nonstop. So, if we can get any extra rest in at any point in time, we’ll smile, take it, and be forever grateful.
- I emptied the dishwasher and put all the dishes away.
Emptying the dishwasher, even if it’s filled to the brim, only takes about 5 minutes. But do you know how many 5 minute chore-type activities we do during the course of day? Like a million! Okay, so it’s not a million but that’s what it seems like! And getting to do even one less chore, is more than fine with us!
- I just finished cleaning the bathrooms.
To be honest, you can’t ever go wrong with saying the words “I cleaned”. Whatever follows those two magical words almost doesn’t even matter. If you cleaned anything, it’s just wonderful. The end.
- The kids are asleep. I poured you a glass of wine.
I’m not going to bother explaining this one. Just get out the glass and pour.
