It’s almost Valentine’s Day, so I wanted to tell you about my sweet husband. We have been married for over two years, and are now hoping to adopt a baby (you wouldn’t believe how long and tedious this process is, but we know it will be worth it!). He has always supported my decision to be a stay-at-home mother, and we’ve been saving and planning for two years.
Two weeks ago, after a long day at my stressful job, I came home crying. My wonderful husband told me to quit my job, stay home, and relax so that I am 100% ready to be a mother.
Oh, Dr. Laura, what a relief! Tomorrow is my last day at this job, and every morning for the last two weeks, I have made my husband lunch, and my job is now to make our dollars go as far as possible. Every night, he has come home to a happy wife, a hug, an “I love you,” and a hot meal. Oh, how he beams!
We may not yet have a baby, but I can already say that my husband is his kid’s dad, and I am proud to be his wife.
