He Did the Dishes

Hi Dr. Laura,

In one of your books (I think it was The Proper Care and Feeding of Husbands, or Marriage), there was a wife who wrote about how she told her husband he looked sexy washing the dishes, so he decided to do it more often!

I am a SAHM and I totally do not expect my hard-working husband to do the dishes, as that is one of my many tasks I perform at home. But, I was surprised the other night (the day after we made AWESOME LOVE), when he did the dishes I had soaking in the sink while I was busy with bedtime routines for our two children.

It was unexpected, but greatly appreciated of course! Did this happen because of "properly caring" for my husband? If so, I really have to keep up the proper caring!

Thanks again,
