We asked moms on Smart Parenting Village what they want to tell their husbands or partners, and we got lots of sweet and funny comments! Prepare to laugh, cry, and feel kilig as you read these moms’ heartfelt messages.

Thanking your husband for just being there

“The moment you stepped inside the operating room to join me in welcoming our baby made me [realize] that your love for me was everlasting.
