To love, honor and obey

The other day when The Mr. asked why I stopped wearing perfume I had a very logical answer. When I started nursing the baby, I said, I didn’t want any interference. I want her to smell me, not perfume.

“Well, I like it when you smell pretty,” he said.

“I smell clean, isn’t that good enough,” I asked sarcastically.

He smiled.

A few days later when he asked why I didn’t wear skirts anymore, I didn’t have such a logical answer. I had a good excuse, but not a logical answer.

“You see, when I wear a skirt, my thighs could light a fire just walking down the hall,” I explained.

"Wear pantyhose," he countered.

"Blech! Why wear pantyhose when I don't have to?"

“I like it when you..."

"Look like a girl?" I interrupted.

"Yeah,” he said. “Not like frilly pinky stuff, just an occasional dress or skirt.”

“Oh. Ok.”

So today, in honor of my beloved and adorable husband, I am wearing body splash and a skirt. (Thank God it’s not hot and humid today!) I love you sweetie. And I love looking like a girl for you.

I don't mind a skirt or a dress, but it would have to be true love to get me in panty hose. To love, indeed!

Now, you picked up on what he wanted from you, but the true question is, did he or will he notice? That's nice though that he notices your smell and your wardrobe - that alone is enough for me to find comfort in!!!

Dr. Parts says the same thing about skirts & hosiery. My excuse is that my feet hurt, which translates into "I can't wear the kinds of shoes that go with skirts." He's still not buying it. But really, does he want to see my Brooks athletic shoes and ankle socks under a skirt? I doubt it. I hope it works for you and him, though.
