We had a whirlwind romance that never really slowed. Met to married in 7 months time, and now 6 years later, we have almost 4 children age 4 and under. We’ve grown together in a different way. We’ve loved each other not just as husband and wife, but as father and mother to our children.
You’ve been an amazing father, which in turn makes you an amazing husband. Always pulling your weight and honestly some of mine too. You exude patience more often than I. I watch you engage with the kids in a way that, honestly is a gift. Watching you be an incredible, sacrificial and fun dad has made me fall in love with you even more every day.
Thank you for being the man I need by my side. You’ve always treated me as an equal and allowed me the grace to be bossy from time to time. You know my faults and don’t just see past them, you help me acknowledge them. You make me a better person without criticizing and just by being the selfless person you are.
I am sorry I don’t tell you nearly enough how much everything you’ve done and do daily makes my life easier and allows me to be a better mom. I promise to do better. To give as you give, without question, without expectation and wholeheartedly. Here’s to our 6th Valentine’s Day together, though we don’t celebrate beyond flowers, chocolate and Netflix after the kids go down, and here’s to at least 50 more.
I love you and always will.
