The Secret of Getting Your Husband to Do What You Want.

I think that I have discovered the secret of how to get your husband to do what you want. It is a risky procedure but if it pays off it pays off big.
When the situation arises state you case firmly and with all of the logical reasons and then say "Yes" to whatever it is he wants to do.

If he wants to buy a Jeep tell him to buy a Jeep. Eventually he will feel guilty because you are being so nice and all of your points against the Jeep were really good points. The next day he will come home and say, "I am not going to buy a Jeep and this is why." and then repeat back all of your sensible points. Urge him again to buy a Jeep and his desire to be contrary will solidify his resolve to not buy a Jeep.

If your sons would like him to take them to the ward Father and Son Camp Out and he really does not want to go camping simply state all of the reasons in favor of him taking his sons on an overnight camp out and then say "You don't have to go. I'll send Commander C with Brother D. and Boba Fett can just stay here and watch movies with you." Before you know it your husband will be planning for the camp out all thanks to you for agreeing with him and to Boba Fett for his big brown eyes, thick glasses and the excitement of a 5 year old.

Tonight Moose and the boys head to the beach for the campout and Nutmeg and I are going to party with the girls!!!
