I know you thought yesterday was a fluke, but I really am this good. (Is it okay with you if I pat myself on the back a bit? Thanks.)
This one is an all skate. This is for wives with children, those who haven't yet begun to breed, and those who are living without children for whatever reason. Ready? Everybody in the pool!
A few years ago, on Valentine's Day, I wrote "100 Things I love about you" for the Computer Guy. (Ladies, breathe. I'm not suggesting a blog post for Mother's Day. Stick with me.) Write that list for your wife. 100 things you love about her. Be specific. "That mole that only we know about." or "The Texas twang that only appears when you're tired or drinking." Go see my list for some brainstorming help, but don't copy as she may read my blog. Take a few days to write it, you have a month. Once you have it typed up, take it to Kinko's or Office Depot, or some other printing place. Have them use your list to create a booklet for your wife. 5 items on a page, on the good vellum paper, the size of a credit card, spiral bound, and with a plastic cover. She can pop it into her purse or coat pocket and when life gets crazy, she can slip it out and read a few to remind her of all the reasons she is the woman you love.
You can get bonus points for its companion "The things we love about mom." Ask the kids to write 10 items each and don't edit them. Be sure to include the authors' ages. You can add it all into your book or go for the 2 volume set. Let the littlest one design the cover art.
I know you're waiting for the cost...it's around $5.00 per book and the time it takes to write it up. You don't have to write love letters or poetry, just a list of what makes her your wife. I triple guarantee this one. Trust me.
