Often times as a married couple with kids you don’t always get a chance just to connect with each other. You are just moving through life so you don’t really get a chance to just check in with each other. I am trying to get better with just checking with The Husband because truth be told I do not often do a good job with it. Next thing I know it has been awhile before I ask about him. I am going to be honest he checks in with me way more than I check in with him. He actually helps me to check in with me. Sometimes I don’t realize I am feeling something until he asks.
I have 3 favorite questions that he asks. Because they actually make me think about my day. It will remind me to do self care. The questions also remind me to check in with him.
- How was your day? : I hardly ever think about my day simply because to me it’s a day. I love it when he shows that he cares how my day went. Sometimes I don’t realize how heavy my day is until I talk to him about it.
- Do You need anything?: I am going to be honest most times I can’t even answer this question because I don’t think about what I need. So it takes me a minute to even answer the question. Well let me rephrase that when I am not asked the question I can think of everything I need but when I am asked the question I go blank.
- What do you want?: Sometimes I can’t answer that either. Well I can but sometimes I have a hard time putting what I want into words. I can say the simpler things. I still have a hard time saying the emotional things.
I love knowing that my husbands thinks about me. I enjoy knowing that I am on his mind. I try to return the favor as well. These questions gives us a moment to reconnect with each other. Do you have a favorite question that your spouse asks you?
