Well, hot damn, if it hasn’t been 4 years since the Mr. and I got married! J is a fabulous husband and we make a great team. I feel like our life adventures together are still just beginning and God knows what we’ll do or where we’ll go next.
Know how they say you continually learn something new about your spouse? Today I learned J doesn’t like hollandaise sauce.
So, 4 years, eh? When we got married we said we’d wait 4 years before talking about kids.
Well, we’ve decided we’re ready to [make plans to] grow our family…to include a dog. PUPPY! As far as human babies? I’d be happy to talk more about that later.
Words like “motherhood” and “parenthood” don’t scare me but they don’t excite me, either. Don’t get me wrong. I think becoming a parent and the miracle of growing a baby in your tummy is one of the many HOLY CRAP, HOW IS THAT POSSIBLE? THAT’S AMAZING! things about life. But, for whatever reason, I was the never the girl who couldn’t wait to be a mom. If J & I do have a kid someday, I’m sure it’ll be every bit as cool as our mommy/daddy friends say it is.
You know what’s nice, though? Knowing that IF we happen to get preggers…I’m confident we could handle it. I’d freak out and then we’d adjust, but I know J would make a great dad and I know we’d rise to the challenge.
I was thinking J & I should start running a mile for every year we’ve been married on our anniversary. We’ve hit a number that is long enough for a decent run and have several years before it would become an all-morning event.
Do you have any health/fitness related anniversary traditions with your better half?
