Just over two and a half years ago, I went from being the well-rested female half of a fun, independent partnership (marriage) to being a mom. Coincidentally, my handsome hubs also became a dad and since then, there have been one or two slight adjustments to our lives.
Imagine my delight when adding kids to our family mix turned out to be our most daring and rewarding decision yet... also the HARDEST one yet, but still the best. I am learning so much from this parenting gig, but one unexpected benefit has been the way my love for my man has expanded, even though we have less alone time, energy, and sleep than ever before.
It ain’t what it used to be (impromptu road trips and leisurely evenings out), but...
Here’s a snapshot of what love looks like in our household with two littles.
1. When your eyes meet across the room…
and it’s like playing chicken.
Who will volunteer as tribute and...
- change the diaper?
- go settle the non sleeping child
- stop the toddler from strangling a cat?
Soft kitty. Warm kitty…
She really loves cats.
Point being, every time my husband jumps to parent our girls, it melts my heart.
2. When you get a glimpse of how great your spouse is…
through your child’s eyes.
|What a |
and you both agree that sleep is really romantic.
So, here’s to looking forward, Valentine. There’s no one else I’d rather adventure through this life with than you. xoxo zzzzzzzzzz.
