10 things. . . .

I just saw this on a friends blog and I'm going to modify it a little and steal it!

10 things I love about Sushiboy

1- He works soooo hard for us. Everything he is doing is with me and the kids in mind. The part time school and full time work, yep, not for him. I'm fairly sure if it wasn't for us he would be content renting a little house, working just enough and doing whatever he wanted to do. He is willing to do things he doesn't "want" to do right now and stick things out even when he would rather be doing something else.

2- He loves me!

3- He thinks I'm hot. Three kids later. . . . it's amazing to me. I'm glad he does!

4- He is a wonderful father to our kids.

5- He understands our kids. When I am at the point that I want to pull my hair out and tell the kids to buck up and stop being babies, he is able to be a kid with them and help me be more patient and loving. This also makes it so he is the perfect person to send to buy presents. He knows just what they will love. I always pick something not "fun" enough.

6- He supports me in whatever choices I make.

7- He is so fun and energetic! One of the things that made me fall in love with him was how he could make me laugh. (We were NOT a love at first sight couple)

8- He has broadened my horizons. I have learned that I like a lot of things I never would have dreamed I would like because he introduced them to me. (sushi, fantasy/sci-fi books, to name a few)

9- He loves to dance. I love that!

10- We are equals. Some people look at our relationship and think I do everything and admittedly I do a lot. But so does he. He doesn't control me, I don't control him. We have different roles and responsibilites but it works for us and I never feel controlled or forced into my role.

What do you love about your significant other?

Great list. I think Sushiboy is great, too....but not for the reasons you do (obviously).

I like that my wife challenges me to be the best that I can be. I would never have gotten into senior management within my company without her confidence in me. I love the fact that we are still crazy in love after 37 years -still holding hands, smootching in public, etc.

leslie- thanks!

Hoosier girl- I know you do!

Dave-Wow, that is so great! I hope sushi and I are still crazy in love 37 years later!
