Mom bloggers are awesome: they can be punchy, smart, original, honest, controversial, insanely inspiring, and fall-off-your-chair funny. Since we can't get enough of them, we are asking the Top 50 Mom Bloggers a special question a month, every month, for 2011. This month, we asked each mom to give us a shout-out to her other half. Read on to find out what they love most about the special men in their lives - and check back next month, when they tell us which bloggers are their favorites!
A shout-out for your other half:

I don’t write much about my husband, nor about our marriage. I don’t, I feel, have enough propriety over those stories to assert myself as their narrator. Those stories are not mine to share. They are his stories – or, in the case of our marriage, our stories. So it is that you rarely read anything substantive about my husband.
Which is a shame, because you would like him, you really would. He’s a wonderful, wonderful man: one of those souls who is just genuinely good, genuinely concerned about the world around him and everyone in it, who is just naturally, effortlessly generous and kind, and not in the cloying manner of someone who wants recognition or a place in the kingdom of God for their efforts but in the straightforward and authentic manner of someone who knows that we all just have to be good to one another if we’re going to get along. And he loves animals and children, all of them, except maybe the really unpleasant ones and the older ones who wear skinny jeans and lurk on street corners (the kids, not the animals) and he always has, even before we had our own. He once got teary-eyed at a performance of Disney on Ice. All of which might make him sound kind of wussy, but he’s not, he’s really not, and that’s the thing, probably the biggest thing, that I love about him: he is at once the kindest and gentlest human being that I know, and the strongest.
Yeah. I kind of love him a lot.
