It’s the little things he does.
Like today, when I was at work. He built me this.
It’s a new photo lightbox that I can take pictures in.
See, I have made a couple of them lately out of a big cardboard box and some tissue paper, which would have worked out just fine.
See, I keep my photo box in our laundry room. A few days ago, I found it completely crunched and broken. The result of a teenage boy just not noticing things.
I still love him anyway, by the way. And I found this today on our chalkboard in the kitchen.
How can you be mad when you find something like that?
Mr. Wonderful started brainstorming on a teenager-proof lightbox I could use. The man’s mind works very unlike mine. He can figure out anything…not kidding…he’s SO smart! Remember the show MacGyver? That guy could take 2 toothpicks and a twist tie and make a weapon!
Same with my husband. He took one of those shoe racks, added 2 lights on the side, and zip-tied them on. Then he got a bigger light and did the same at the top.
At the bottom, he zip-tied on one of those plug outlets that allows multiple plug-ins and plugged all 3 lights into it.
Then, he put a simple frosted storage box on the bottom rack and turned it onto one side. Inside is a plain white piece of posterboard. That can be switched out for other colors.
I think it worked pretty doggone well!
Girls, if you find a man that will do things that he knows will make you happy, and cares more about making you smile than his own needs, you have a keeper for life. Hold on to him and love him forever!
I love my little gift from him and I adore him completely!
As for this kid…
I’m still keeping him far away from it!
