New ways to love...

All the mom's out there will know what I'm talking about in this blog. Last night I got home from the Leadership Hamilton Alumni mixer and came home to two kids bathed and ready to go to bed. Damon had sat outside with them in the front yard and had them playing in a small kiddie pool Grandma Pod had bought. As I was trying to get them to venture toward their beds, Emma hopped on Damon who was sitting in the floor. She started squealing as Daddy' picked her up and had her "high in the sky." Then of course Landon had to get in on the fun and soon they were all in the floor playing and giggling. There is nothing in the world like the sound of a kid laughing.

I realized again just how much I love my husband. I remember reading in a Chicken Soup for the Soul book and one line struck me and I think of it. It says "You'll fall in love with your husband again after you have kids." It is so true. You fall in love with your kids father and the qualities that being a great dad bring out in men. The way they hold a newborn baby, the first time their kid smiles at them and the look on their face, or the sound of "Daddy do it again!"

I have a wonderful husband who also happens to be a GREAT father. I told him that last night too, that I love watching him with the kids and it makes me fall in love with my husband all over again.

I completely agree! I love watching my husband with my kids. I always tell him that I have never loved him so much as the time I watched him sit there quietly while Emmalyn put sparkly make-up on his face. I totally fell in with all over again.
