Grateful for My Stay at Home Husband
Grateful for My Stay at Home Husband
02/29/2012

Dear Dr. Laura,

I am a proud Mommy of 4 daughters ages 17,15,13 and 10. I also work full time and have a wonderful husband of 21 years. Thirteen years ago when I was expecting our third child I knew one of us had to stay home. Our daughters 2 and 4 spent no more than 25 hours a week with a babysitter at our home, but I knew they needed us.

As I listen to many of your callers I realize not ONCE in 13 years has my husband EVER complained about the burden of being home. Each day I come home to a clean house, a good meal and happy girls who know we both love them enough to give them what they deserve.

It's never easy doing the right thing, but it is worth it. Our oldest daughter will be going off to college in the fall and I know my husband will never regret the times he spent with her. I had flexibility in my job and once school began I was fortunate to not miss much. Knowing that when I'm not there he is, has been a blessing.

I just finished your book the Proper Care and Feeding of Husbands and promise to continue to take good care of mine. He has been taking good care of us!

Sincerely,

Dale
