I read something on the news the other day that said the world as a whole is getting more pessimistic. While I understand that there are crazy things going on in the world, I can’t help but wonder if social media has a part to play in it all. We are constantly bombarded with the headlines all over Facebook, Twitter, Instagram–you name it. So rather than share something sad on your news feed or via email, share more positive, uplifting and funny stuff!
Why not start with your husband? I’m a firm believer in making humor a part of marriage. Some work days are more exciting than others, and some are just plain hard. But some of these fun ideas are sure to flip his day around and get him chuckling while at work!
Monk-e-maker. This is by far my all-time favorite. So hilarious every time. Sometimes I even make one while we are sitting on the same couch and I act like I’m hard at work on something. Then I press play and watch him react. Priceless. You can change the voices, the outfits, and insert the text for whatever you want it to say. Click on the picture to see the most recent one I made for my husband (We like Nacho Libre at our house, or at least my husband does).
Add Googly Eyes to his lunch. This won’t get him busting up like the Monk-e-Maker, but I know for my husband it would at least bring a smile.
Change his ring tone to something super weird, funny or random (depending on his personality) and call him while he is at work.
Dentastix Smile Maker. If Monk-e-Maker ever gets old (yeah right), then here’s another good one (click to see the one I made):
Set up Notifications. Set some awesome notifications to pop up or alert him on his phone. Only you know what will get him laughing, but the options are endless for this one. Does he have favorite movie quotes? Set them to go off at random times throughout the day. Do you have inside jokes just between the two of you? Remind him.
Now it’s YOUR turn! What types of things do you do to keep humor in your marriage (and relationships)?
A HUGE thank you to those of you that shop through our occasional affiliate links that appear on Mother's Niche! It is of no extra cost to you, and I notice and appreciate it each time that it happens (really). Because of you, I might be able to avoid having to cloth diaper my babies, wash and recycle my zip lock baggies, and maybe one day in the future we will be able to afford a lawn mower. A girl can dream, right? See my disclosure policy for more info. Love you all!
