    When was the last time your DH/SO complimented you?

    When was the last time you received a compliment from your better half? Does he/she give them often?


    DH often tells me how lucky our boys are to have me as their mom and he tells me how much he loves me but I don't remember the last time he told me I was "pretty" or looked nice or anything like that.

    How good is yours about this?

    Very recently - within the last two or three days. He told me "You look good."

    He compliments me frequently. I am spoiled.

    Mine is the opposite. He often compliments me about how I look, but NOT about the things I do. I'd love to hear how lucky Wyatt is to have me as his mom!

    Oh, and I LOVE hearing it too but it would be nice to hear him tell me I look good once in awhile too.


    Wyatt IS lucky to have you as his mom .

    DH is really pretty good about complimenting me. Sometimes it's just a simple "great supper" or notices I really cleaned the house, he'll say something about it. Or he'll walk by me and say "hey hottie." Right now, I've rejoined Weight Watchers and am making pretty good headway on losing weight and DH will notice when I put on jeans, or something besides my normal sweats/running pants and tells me I'm looking really good. I am a pt SAHM/WAHM so I'm always in sweats or something like it!

    Funny how what we hear the least is what we want the most! My favorite is when Vini compliments my cooking. Those come far less frequently (for good reason) compared to my parenting skills, or looks, or - ahem - other abilities...

    DH is admittedly bad at compliments. He is quite critical, actually, but is working on it. Sometimes I'll tell him I need a compliment and he'll say, "I'm sorry, I think of things to say, but I just don't say them - I need to work on that." Of course he compliments the love-making skills quite often. I would too if I wanted it as much as he did

    J is not very frequent about compliments, but when he gives them, I doubt he even means them as compliments, but they are the ones that take your breath away...i.e

    "I never knew my kids would have such an incredible mom" (we don't even have any yet....lol)
