Keeping the family happy?

Nowadays, how the heck can we keep all of the family happy? Well, keeping my husband happy includes ESPN HD, and my son, DISNEY or NICK JR/Nickelodeon. But that can’t be all, can it? I want to take a look at this…

I think we all know how a wife keeps her husband happy, and generally, its not safe for this kind of blog. But, lets face it, that’s a real way to keep a husband happy – to keep it satisfying, to keep it fresh, and surprise him. But again, that’s not the only way. But I am sure there are women who think this is the only way. And that is sad, honestly.

To keep my husband happy, I talk to him. Compromise. Work things out. Try not to go to bed mad at each other. Always finish out an argument/disagreement, because I hate to go to bed mad and wake up the next morning with that same issue going on. Talking things out keeps both of us happy.

I keep him happy by helping out with the household chores. If he works late, keep some food on a plate in the fridge for him, so all he has to do is heat it up. Making his favorite foods keeps him happy too. He loves lasagna, and loves macaroni and cheese. I can make mac and cheese home made, and I bake it in the oven. I haven’t even attempted to make the lasagna from scratch. Seems intimidating. I keep him happy by being in a good mood, being myself. Being ME and not trying to be like susie homemaker, because he knows that’s just not me. He likes that I am myself, and loves it when I go out of my way to do something – but doesn’t make me. That keeps both of us happy.

 

Keeping my son happy – that’s a whole ‘nother story. He prefers to be kept happy with painting, video games, and cartoons. LOL. I try to get him to do other things, and get into other activities – but at the same time, with ADHD, anything that keeps him occupied and focused is great. He’s quite easy to keep happy these days. Who know how long it lasts for though Smile 

 

I prefer, to keep us all happy, by remaining a family that communicates with each other, talks things through, and being honest with each other. There is nothing to hide or lie about, so there really isn’t a need for crazy heated arguments. Most of our “fights” are just disagreements. And they usually work out just fine for us. 

So readers, what do you do to keep your family happy?
