And it’s not just because I’m fabulous, though I will accept that label with open arms. No, it’s because I have a super duper husband who recognizes that what I do for our family deserves respect and support every day, not just one day of the year. However I will have to admit that by average standards, I am spoiled.
You see not only do I get praise and acknowledgement for my contributions in our home on a regular basis, I also get gifts of flowers weekly (an awesome tradition we started), of whispered sweet wonders in my ear when we cuddle and bond once our son is in bed, of breaks when needed without prompting, or surprise gifts like new clothing or entertainment, of household chores taken over when I am too tired, of childcare offered so that I can hit the gym or take a nap...the list is pretty long. My husband also helps me by being present and empathic when I share my struggles and asks for ways he can be more supportive as I deal with them. AND as an added bonus, he is delicious and I want to make a million babies with him. I am almost constantly in a state of marital bliss. The honeymoon phase never faded with us, even after having a baby together, dealing with a long military deployment and workout out our financial goals. WE GOT IT ALL MAN!
My relationship with my husband is the strength that I draw from and it allows me to work at being the mother I want to be for our son. With him I feel like mother’s day is every day and so the ‘designated’ day on the calendar really does not mean much to me. I’ve even considered giving HIM something instead, as a thank you for being so awesome.
You’re welcome honey. Keep being awesome.
