Email of the Day: Your Husband Wants to Know He's Wanted

Two people draw a heart on the shower door

You and your callers inspire me to be a better human, mother, and wife every day. A recent interaction with my husband proves just that. I had a good laugh and needed to reach out.


My husband recently insisted on sweeping debris off the second-floor roof. I was worried about this, of course! It’s nerve-wracking when men go up on a ladder as they age.


Instead of pestering my husband to get down, I stripped off my clothes and seductively showed him my naked body through the window. β€œI’ve got a hot shower going,” I told him from inside. I’ve never seen a man get down a ladder faster!  


This is a reminder: there’s no need to nag husbands to do (or not to do) certain things. Instead, let’s simply remind them that they’re needed and wanted. That’ll do the trick every time. We turned our afternoon around from doing errands to doing each other. Ha!
