2 years ago my kindergarten crush found the courage to ask me out... to a super bowl party with a bunch of people i didn't even know...but i liked him so i went. we had hung out the night before - a sort of "reuniting...do i want to pursue this...is he really that good looking in person" type thing. - i liked him. we sat next to each other but it was too soon for hand holding so our elbows stayed glued together the whole night. it was precious.
not a single day passed that we didn't see each other after that. we fell in love, got married, and started our beautiful little family. every year since that night, we have done the exact same thing. we go to the same place, eat the same food, hang out with the same people...
so last night as i sat next to my husband, his attention full on the game, screaming every once in awhile, i just stopped and let it all soak in. i just thought back on that day 2 years ago and our ride home that night. i remember thinking so many things, feeling so many things, and wondering what might come of it.
and now here i am...with our baby sleeping in my arms, missing him as he works hard to provide for us. i wonder where i would be without him in my life. i wonder how i would have grown and learned all of the things he has taught me.
you have brought so much happiness and love to my life. i am literally complete with you and baby we made. i am overwhelmingly grateful for your unconditional love. you are the sweetest daddy to your little mini-me and i am so blessed to have you as the father of my children. i love watching you play with him and hearing you two converse together. i'm so lucky to have you, you are my greatest blessing.
