The BEST DH in the world

I am soooooooo spoiled I must be getting rotten by now. A little background on why he felt he needed to get me a little cheer up gift. Yesterday I had a rather nasty phone call from my daughters husband (I no longer consider him my SIL or a member of my family) and believe me I was so upset it caused me to have chest pains. Did my daughter or son call to say "sorry" NO! Now I understand why some animals eat their young. Well after my sweetie got home from work he went to Wal Fart, he needed to pick up a gift for a exchange at work. He came in with a bag behind his back, gave me a BIG hug and said this should cheer you up a little.

This is what was in the bag.....

The Froggie is a kid size mesh backpack and inside there are little kid size slippers (I'll find a cute use for them), a nylon bath scrubbie (I really needed a new one too) and the cutest little bath mitten that you can see in the picture. The socks light up and I just love them. He is always looking for cute socks for me as I seem to be collecting them.
He is just the best husband anyone could ask for and I think I'll keep him another 30 years.

Sorry about your upsetting phone call, though your DH was so sweet! What a really neat gift, but the gesture behind it is the most important. Yep - he's a keeper!

Nancy said...

Bummer about why you got it... but it was very thoughtful!

Wanda said...

You're right, Rene, he sounds like a keeper. As for the phone call, don't give it another thought. Sometimes that is how it goes with adult children - ir even adult siblings. (Ask me how I know. LOL)

Forget about your SIL. You are so right Rene, DH is a keeper. I LOVE the socks, I have a thing for socks too!

So sorry to hear about the phone call. There is no accounting for some people. But what a lovely gesture from your DH! He is so thoughtful. Definitely a keeper!

Oh how lucky you are Renee to have such a wonderful man as that. Yes I can sympathize with you regarding children. My step daughters and I have a very strained relationship. Never really figure out why because my step son and I have a very wonderful and close relationship.

Good 'ol Tracy, he always comes through for you!
Forget about your SIL, the heartache aint worht it and your better than him.

HUGS Rene he is certainly a keeper!!!

Sorry about your rude SIL. With rude and thoughtless people like that I just remember that they are probably angry and rude ALL THE TIME. I know I couldn't live like that. They are probably miserable most of the time and don't even acknowledge that it is all their fault. How do I know? My father. My mother went in the hospital and he refused to tell me why or how she was doing. He claimed it was "None of my business." No wonder I haven't spoken to him in a dozen years. He was equally rude to my wonderful mother-in-law. Cherish the good people around you and ignore the rest.

Autumn said...

Oh forget yo supposed son-on-paper-only. He's obviously a complete screw-up. Your hubby is SUCH a swwetie! He should get an award!

that's awfully sweet of your hubster - they can be that way when they want to :-) Your SIL, well - i concur with everyone else.. what a jerk.. and I would never allow my husband to speak to my mom that way - or I would at least have the decency to call you back and apologize on his behalf.

hope you have avery merry Christmas :-)
