oh yes i am so glad he can do a lot with his hands.. i mean well regarding the chocolate fountain during my daughter's birthday..lol he did not test it the night before (borrowed it from a friend for free) He was supposed to test it but he did not. During the day, it was not turning, therefore the chocolate fountain was not functioning!! i was fretting as it is my center piece lol.. good thing hubby is quite good in fixing things.. he opened it and something was blocking the auger so it was not turning.. and voila! it was working after that..how cool is that. lol. i was like a kid happy about my toy fixed. hahaha.. then also last night my 5 year old son's toy train was not running.. he opened it too and voila it worked again!

Lucky you jazel to have a good repairman in your husband. Indeed, men are supposed to be good in things like that , but it seems my husband is not. Hence, when something is not functioning well in the house, it wll always be his brother who is also a jack of all trades that we call to have it checked. Well, he does compensate for being so attentive to our safety at home.

Well, my dad is just like your husband too. He is a lawyer yet he knows how to repair things at home. Now that he is a retired judge, he would just hire help to do the repairs, of course with him watching and suggesting on how to better do them.

That is what makes us happy about our men. the little things they can do for us in life. I know I have my own little helper as well. I sure hope he is able to help me fix the dining table next week.

My dad used to be so handy in the house too.I always watched every time he was fixing somethings in the house wherein I really learned a lot. So when times when my dad in not around the house, I am the one trying to fix things that are needed to repair based on things that I have learned from my dad.At least we don't need to call of repair service right away.

Hi Jodee, whats your husband's name? Maybe we are sharing with one husband.? I do really admire men who do(and even love) cooking for his family. And I just love my husband's version of Tom Yum Soup.

Its our real pride to have a very functional man. Its also a boost to our sense of security that we can beat any challenges because we married a MacGyver or James Bond.I always tell my husband That I do really feel so secured when he is around.

It sounds as if he might have the magic touch for fixing things lately. Of course, it might have been better if he had tested the fountain the night before, but that is how things are sometimes.

Moments like this make me appreciate my husband even more, not that I don't in the first place! I don't think I have the hand to fix even the smallest stuff, like changing lightbulbs, so I have to be like the damsel in distress asking hubby to do it for me. Of course I like the proud way they take charge. I am sure they feel some ego-boost whenever they feel needed and whenever they were able to do something for their girls.

It is always good to know someone who is handy at things like that. He got them both running in no time and I am sure the fountain looked beautiful. I know a few things about getting things to start working, my grandmother actually taught me. In my family it's the ladies that know more about fixing things then it is the men.

Hi friend, good to know about your hubby's fixing activities. Surely we will get more fun and enjoyment if some one repaired our old toys and favorite things in this sort. I admire your hubby for his unique skill, not every one is blessed with this kind of skills. Hope your son enjoyed a lot with his new fixed toy

My ex was like that the first 4 years we were married. We never had to pay anyone to fix a thing. He did it all. he even made me once some neat shelfs out of scrap wood. he was great at those things when he wanted to be.

Hello! That's what really makes us proud with our husband. My husband is handy too and he can fix almost everything at home. Actually I admire him for being able to help with our crochet orders, haha. He cooks better than me too.

You must be a happy woman jazel_juan, because you married to a good man. I can feel your husband not only handy but also considerate, he can help you solve many difficult things. Marrying to a man who love you is a woman's biggest happy!

You are lucky to have someone who is good at mending things, my father is useless when it comes to fixing things, he hasn't got a clue, in actual fact the role is reverse, it's the wife can be handy in their relationship, as it is left for my mother to fix everything that goes wrong, she has a lot of experience as she is used to things going wrong, she is very patient and she won't rest until the job is done, she puts her hand to anything, when I was a child anything that got broken it was always mum I asked to help fix it.

Well,i do hope he knows how you feel..speaking from a husband's point of view, even though we try not to show it,ego and all, it does feel great to be reminded that we are appreciated, i think you sound like a person who will give praise if it is deserved, and sounds like you have a keeper,make sure you let him know,directly or indirectly.

My husband painted our kitchen - It´s a blessing to have husband that enjoys helping their wives with their problems.
Hello jazel! It´s a blessing to have a husband like yours, and like mine too... we should take care of them very well. Don´t you think so? My husband painted our room and kitchen, and repaired the base of my microphone yesterday! We should take care of them. Isn´t it? Blessings jazel... dainy

That is really awesome that he was able to take it apart and fix it. Being that it was not mine I would have worried that I would break it worse if I opened it and took it apart. Thank goodness for your husband so your centerpiece was fixed and you were able to use it.
