It’s that time of year again! Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and, in the spirit of love and whatnot, I thought the best way to celebrate this day would be with a question and answer sesh with my handsome husband.
That’s right, folks. It’s Valentine’s Day Q&A 2.0! For those of you who are new here, this is something I did with Daddydaims back in 2019 and we had SO much fun that I knew we had to do it again.
I took a bunch of questions from our first Valentine’s Day Q&A to see how his answers compare this time around and, to keep him on his toes, I added a bunch more. With that being said, here are the answers to 14 questions you’ve probably never wondered about.
PS: Again, the bolded words are me chipping in because I can’t shuddup.
PPS: If you feel like doing this Q&A session with your own partner, I’ve created a little image you can save to your device. That’ll be at the bottom of this post, so keep scrolling, scrolling, scrolling-ah.
If you could get rid of one thing that belongs to me, what would it be and why?
Uhhhh, can I say your makeup? It’s many things, but it’s one thing. Because it takes you so flipping long to do it and you don’t need it.
What is your favourite romantic movie and why?
I can’t remember the name of it — I think it’s called ‘My Crazy Girl’ or something like that (it’s actually called ‘My Sassy Girl’) with Elisha Cuthbert and that dude who is always in non-important roles. I like that one because it’s just nice. It’s cute and it’s heartwarming and it ends really nicely.
Fun fact: Daddydaims is a big fan of romcoms and deems nothing “too girly” for him to watch with his girls.
What annoys you most about me?
Every time I breathe, you’re like “What’s wrong?”
Why do you love me?
For the same reasons that I’ve always loved you. Because you’re kind, and you’re thoughtful, and you put all of us before you. You’re a great mom and a great partner. You’re easy to love.
GUYS! What a honey muffin.
Out of all the dates we’ve been on, which one has been your favourite?
Look at this guy, giving me ample internal linking opportunities.
What would be your ideal way to spend Valentine’s Day?
Non-Valentine’s Day-ish. Just a normal day, because why does it have to be one day in a year that you make a fuss over your partner? Why does it have to be this big thing? Why can’t you just periodically “Valentine’s Day” it?
What is your favourite part about being married?
This is gonna sound awful: the predictability of it. It’s just like consistency. You don’t know what to expect every day obviously, you know that when you wake up your wife is gonna be there and your family is gonna be there — it’s just comforting.
What is the most difficult part of being married?
*Elaborates after Tash glares at him*
It’s definitely gotten easier, but the concept of in any situation whether it’s a reaction or a plan, you don’t get to think about ‘you’.
In 20 years from this exact moment, where do you hope you are?
In England. Walking AJ down the aisle, hopefully, a second kid maybe. I mean it’s not like a thing — it is — but it would be nice. Comfortable, just in general. Obviously not stress-free, but semi-stressless would be great.
Do you feel that couples should make more of an effort on Valentine’s Day?
No, I think Valentine’s Day is a crock of rubbish.
What was our last argument about?
I don’t know. We had a big fight a few months back, but we bicker quite often. Like when you forget to turn the bathroom light off, and me saying I’m gonna do the washing and then not. Stuff like that.
Okay, these last three questions are supposed to bring you closer to your partner — because science and stuff — so I thought I’d give it a Tash bash. I chose one question from each of the three sets of questions. Let’s probe.
What three things do you and your partner have in common?
Our faith, the love for snuggling which is kinda what led us to become partners, our love for our child, the mutual centership around family. I also like that we were on the same page in the early days when you got pregnant that we both weren’t like “ooooooh we’ve gotta get married”.
If you knew that in one year you would die suddenly, would you change anything about the life you are living and why?
Yeah, I would stop spending money on frivolous rubbish. Like with electronics and stuff, it’s fun to have but if I’m gonna die in a year what’s the point? I’d get rid of it all. I’d travel and make sure that my family is gonna be okay after I’m gone.
Your house, containing everything you own, catches fire. After saving your loved ones and pets, you have time to safely make a final dash to save any one item. What would it be and why?
Nothing. As long as you guys and Essie are safe, there’s nothing I’d go back in for. Why risk your life or do something stupid to save something materialistic? Sure, maybe it can’t be replaced but honestly in five years after it being gone is it really going to be missed?
What about our British Passports?
Those can be replaced. Why run back into the fire? The only reason I’d run back into the fire would be to save one of you guys.
Bonus question! What one nugget of advice would you give to people in relationships?
Don’t always try to be the one that wins the argument or discussion. You’ll be a lot happier when your partner is happier rather than if you were right all the time.
People! Do I not have the sweetest baby-making partner in the whole wide world? I’m gushing over here. Even though our Valentine’s Day plans likely involve pizza and watching reruns of Peppa Pig, I couldn’t be happier to spend it with Daddydaims.
I hope everyone reading this (all forty-bloody-three of you gorgeous creatures!!!!) has a wonderful Valentine’s Day that leaves you feeling as loved and special as you are.
