Ah, life...

Tuesday, November 11, 2014

So the hubby and I are supposed to be spending our last free night before working in the morning together and I'm sooo not a rockstar. I wish I could put a pic of the dress I wore the other night on here- scandalous! but tonight, I'm apparently a mother hen in a very non-sexy mother hennish way.

It's my daughter's first sleep over. She's had a few girls over here, spent a few nights at the mil's house, but it's her first over at someone else's.

I text her "How's it going?"


"Cool, see you tomorrow!"

"Bye! How is it there?"

"It's good. Hoping you're having a good time"

"I am, and man am I tired"

"lol. go to bed!"

"I'm not that tired"

"Ok. stop texting your mama and have fun. Love u!"

"Luv u too"

Who texts their mother at a sleepover?? And who admits that they're tired??!!


MY kid does.

The duality of it all is awesome, and probably one of the reasons my husband loves me, though I think he'd be hard-pressed to admit it right this second. emoticon

We were watching "Maleficent", and I started laughing at her telling the girl she doesn't like children (because I tell the kids that ALL the time when they're all trying to hug me). And he looked at me in such a way. A way that conveyed love and maybe a little adoration, but totally not the way you want your hubby looking at you on your 3rd anniversary.

Epic fail on my part. I killed it the other day, but tonight...I feel like I failed to be the good wife. And tomorrow is actually our official anniversary.

    You and your husband sound to me like those swans that mate for life. And life is least when the gods are good...and an anniversary is just one day out of a very long year! He was looking at you like you're a good wife and adorable. That's something he won't find on the Internet emoticon

    Eh? I don't see the fail either. Yeah, okay it's "your time" together and you choose to do a little parenting.. I do that when I'm away from the twins... Which is very seldom but my husband knows once I check in I'm at ease and they are at ease. So as soon as I'm done and we can continue with our night.. That doesn't mean that sometimes he doesn't say "they're fine, leave them alone." but it does mean it's his fault if it takes me twice as long to do what I need to do.

    Happy sounds like you had a very romantic loving day/weekend...your daughter let you know just how much she loves her Mom....Romance doesn't always have to be candles, fine wine and all that stuff...sometimes just holding hands & cuddling means more! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Where is the fail? He loves you - you had an awesome night and weekend. Love comes in many forms - hanging on the couch, watching a movie, being real - that's love.

    Happy Anniversary emoticon

Your mothering behaviours toward your daughter are absolutely great. YOU ARE PERFECT just as you are. We want pics of you in your dress from the other night girl! No

    Greg is pretty smart, but so is a rare bean (wielding a lightsaber, huh?!!!).... you had an awesome night the other night, yes ? in the awesome dress. And some times the mothering comes out and is over powering.... but that's okay. Doesn't mean you love him any less or desire him any less. He loves you, chickie - you don't have to be a sexy goddess 100% of the time! Sheesh, if you did that you'd make the rest of us all look bad! Give yourself a break :)

    p.s. I love your daughter. She is awesome.

    And happy anniversary!

    Thing is sparky you are both wife AND mother and way I read your blog is you didn't fail you KILLED it at being a mom and gave your hubby the chance to love that facet of you too as well as yo sexy self t'other night. You're little girl knows you are always there for her, touching base whilst at her sleep over you are imbedding the foundation that as she runs off for her adventures in life mum is just a phone call away, always having her back and wishing her fun and joy. So not only does mr Darth Vader get a hot to trot wife who knows exactly how to wield a lightsabre lol he also in that moment got to love the loyal you, the nurturing you and the supportive you.

    Ideas for the actual day, yeah I'm pretty useless at romantic stuff too so will join the chorus started of be you, I'm sure you can think of something fun to do.

    Hey Sparky, I read your blog twice, trying to figure out how to respond, because you know I'm not good at this romantic stuff. But then I read what GHK1962 wrote, and there's NW I could come up with a better comment than his. (Not that I'm competing, of course!) What a brilliant reply to your question! And admit it--you know he's right!

    Fail? NFW (I'll let you figure out the acronym)

    I will say that my idea is ... be yourself. THAT is what the man fell in love with.
