30 Reasons I Love My Man

Here, on this Father’s Day, are 30 of the many reasons I love my husband Superman:

  1. He has the most fabulous arms.
  2. He never leaves the house without saying “I love you” to each of us. He will walk up and down the stairs to make sure he accomplishes this.
  3. He makes me laugh every day.
  4. He snuggles with each of the kids on the couch anytime they ask. (Which is pretty much every night.)
  5. He loves that our teenage son still hugs him in public.
  6. He makes the Most. Amazing. Salsa. Ev-ah.
  7. He writes me e-mails in the middle of the day just to say he loves me.
  8. He has a great body.
  9. He loves all manly things: football, motorcycles, golf, surfing, beer, gadgets, women and blue jeans.
  10. He looks great in his blue jeans.
  11. He makes me and the kids Sunday brunch every week (usually egg burritos and salsa — yum).
  12. He pulls over if he sees a car stranded in the middle of the road and helps push it like some kind of superhero.
  13. He calls my mom just to talk to her.
  14. He instituted a Saturday night sleepover for the kids when they were small, and it’s a tradition we continue to this day.
  15. He loves traditions.
  16. He’s very generous and helps me be more so.
  17. He has interesting interests and follows them with a passion. They change over the years, but I love that he has them. Examples: tikis, midcentury modern design, presidents, WWII, football, baseball.
  18. He knows an outrageous amount of trivia about tikis, midcentury modern design, presidents, WWII, football and baseball.
  19. He does crossword puzzles every day.
  20. He takes each of our kids on a “10-year-old’s road trip,” which is a weekend road trip of their choice with just dad. Child 1 went to Oregon to see a Ducks game. Child 2 went to the coastal city of Carmel and to the aquarium there. And here’s the trip with Child 3.
  21. He keeps a “Happiness Book” of the kids’ drawings and named it such because it brings him joy.
  22. He had to bury a brother and his mom, and, perhaps consequently, loves his family like there’s no tomorrow.
  23. He hates to fly, but will.
  24. He loves Tahoe and Yosemite as much as I do.
  25. He holds my hand over the console in the car.
  26. He encourages me to do things that make me happy, whether it’s walking up to the book store or scrapbooking until midnight.
  27. He still gets nervous about buying me presents.
  28. He taught our daughter how to throw a football.
  29. He shows our kids every day how to treat a woman with respect.
  30. He is quite possibly the best father on earth.


Happy Father’s Day, babe!

  1. Reading that filled my heart. Chris–not that I’m the least bit suprised. Love to you both, and hope you had a woenderful day with your family. Ciao!

  2. Thanks, all! I was touched by how much HE was touched by it all. And then I thought, gosh, I must not say these things very often, even though I THINK them all the time. … hmmm … lesson for me! : )

  3. That was the sweetest thing I ever read! I already knew that Chris is one of the “good ones” (putting it mildly) but seeing it all spelled out was so heartwarming.

  4. That was great and very sweet! I had to laugh when I noticed that #1 was “he has great arms” because I remember that was one of the first things you fell in love with. You used to talk about his “great arms” when you first met…too cute 🙂

  5. Thanks so much, Grace! (You got a “good one,” too. …) : )

    Debi, yeah, Chris didn’t believe me when I told him it was one of the first things I noticed about him, so when he read your comment, he e-mailed me! Now he finally believes me! Actually, I recently started writing out the story of how I met him, and it makes me think of you a lot because you were there and so helpful/influencial.
