That word “husband”

by singlemomseeking on November 3, 2010

I am still not used to calling him “my husband” — or even introducing him to other people as such. Perhaps, it’s going to take some time for me to get used to saying that word.

He, on the other hand, seems to enjoy saying “wife” whenever he gets the chance! He teases me for introducing him by saying things like: “Please meet my guy.”

Maybe I still can’t believe this is happening. This as in this relationship, this patience I’ve never known, this man who can read any glimpse of disappointment and ask me, “What’s on your mind, love?”

Is this for real? Yes. Yes. No doubt, that label “Lucky Guy” — this is what the sweet parking attendant called him when I’d said we were dating — has had its time. (Although he has grown attached to the nickname). I’d love to give him a new name on this blog. Hmmmm… “DH,” aka “dear husband,” just isn’t me — and it’s already being used proficiently by 1000s of other married bloggers.

My kid came up with this nickname for him: Thunderpants”….

And privately, I call him variations of “hot.”

If you have any suggestions, I’m all ears. In fact, let’s have a Name-My-Husband book giveaway contest!

Submit your suggestion in the comments, and I’ll mail the winner a signed copy of my book, Single Mom Seeking.

Here’s a clue to show you what kind I’m-game-for-anything guy his is: my daughter and her friend dressed up as Smurfs for Halloween — and she’d asked him to be “Papa Smurf.” He made his own costume (and, yes, I went along as Smurfette!)

Thank you! I can’t wait to hear what you come up with!

Contest is open through Saturday, Nov. 20. I’ll pick my favorite name at midnight PST…. here’s to your early holiday present, from me to you!
