30 Things Series #3: My Relationship with My Husband

As part of my 30 Things My Son Should Know About Me series, I give to you the description of my relationship with my husband, your dada.

This is a hard one for me. I love your dad - that's the biggest thing. I love him AND I like him. To describe our marriage, though, is tough. I mean, it changes all the time. Sometimes, we're on cloud nine. Sometimes, we could easily smother the other while they sleep. Sometimes, we're just going through the motions as we coast on until the next day, the next high, the next low. I mean, is that a marriage? It is for us.

I suspect that whatever I write here won't matter as much as your observations over the years. You could likely describe our relationship with a lot more honesty than I ever could. I wonder what you see. Do you see the years of hurts we've spent more years working to heal? Do you see the emotional holes from our childhoods we try to fill in one another now? Do you see the years of laughter shared over the most ridiculous and absurd moments? Do you see the times we are hanging on by a thread? Do you see the adoration in our eyes? Do you see how impossible it is to describe a relationship filled with such complexities in one little blog post?

I don't know that it can be done - leastwise, not by me. I think you could do it better. All I hope is that we give you something to look forward to in your own relationships, lessons of what to avoid, and a sense of warmth and comfort when you come home to our loving arms and home as the years go by.
