I wouldn’t normally do one of these heartfelt gushy letters, but #Blogtober16 is calling for it, so here goes! You may want to reach for a bucket somewhere around the last paragraph. You have been warned and I apologise in advance!
Where to start? What a roller coaster few years it has been! Three years ago we bought our house, the following summer we got engaged, the next we were married and now we have Little M. Aren’t we lucky with how well it’s all turned out?
Mostly, I feel lucky to have you as my husband, my partner in life. You really are my best friend. I know that I can go to you with a problem and you’ll always help me to see things a different way and make me feel better. And on the times when there’s no way to feel better, you hug me until the tears are gone. I hope I do the same for you.
Thank you for being patient with me, even in those moments that I can be a bit irrational. Thankfully those times are becoming fewer and fewer and further between, as my scars from life before you fade and I feel more confident in myself and our relationship.
I’m so grateful that we are able to laugh and joke about things every day. Even when things are a bit pants (because let’s face it, sometimes life is pants), we still manage to laugh at something. Usually something that no one else would find funny! I also love the fact that we are practically raising Little M in a musical, with our own little songs for anything and everything!
I’m so pleased that having Little M seems to have made our relationship stronger, when the stress of having a baby could quite easily could have had the opposite effect. It makes me so proud to see you with her. I couldn’t have asked for a better father to my baby. I feel like we’re the best team that Little M could have.
Thank you for doing all of the sterilising even though I am a ‘house wife’, and not complaining (too much!) when ‘nothing’ seems to have been done when you get home!
I’m so proud of you and your success at work. I know it can be stressful sometimes but you must try to relax – you do an amazing job and I know your colleagues appreciate what you do. Remember that I’m always ready to listen to whatever challenges you’ve had that day.
Most of all, always remember that I love you more than words can say and I’ll always put you and Little M first.
Love and kisses,
