On Saturday afternoon, I left The Hubs in charge of our daughter while I quickly ran to the store to grab a couple of things, and on my way home I started wondering why I don't go out on my own more often.
But then I opened the front door to our condo and remembered.
The place was like a scene out of a movie – there were tea towels, kitchen utensils, legos, alphabet pieces, wooden blocks, Cheerios, DVDs, and Sandra Boynton books strewn all over the place.
And don't even get me started on those Melissa and Doug peg puzzle pieces.
I'd been gone for thirty minutes.
Thirty minutes, people!
But my daughter was having the time of her life and The Hubs had obviously enjoyed being able to make a mess without me breathing down his neck, so I swallowed my irritation, went into the kitchen, and set to work.
15 minutes later, the kitchen was clean and dinner was prepped, and I decided I'd go and flip the laundry before tackling the living room.
And then I saw this:
I almost passed out.
My husband folded laundry.
On his own accord.
Without any prompting from me.
I don't think I've ever felt more attracted to him than I did in that moment.
It was enough to make me dig around in my lingerie drawer and dab some perfume on my wrists once our daughter was in bed that night.
So listen up, fellas: if you're searching for ways to get your wife in the mood, forget about the dinner reservations, the flowers, and the expensive bottles of wine. All you need to do is plug in the vacuum, stack the dishwasher, or empty the diaper genie once in a while.
And if you really want to spice things up in the bedroom, try cleaning the toilets every now and then…
What household chores does your husband do to get you in the mood?
