Dear Hot Momma,
Happy Anniversary! I’m sorry this is all you get. No card and no flowers. Sorry about that.
It isn’t that I forgot about our anniversary, this past week has been so busy between you being sick and getting the house ready for Halloween, I just didn’t have the time to get anything.
I realize that I may not be the best husband and the two days that mean the most to you, our anniversary and your birthday, often get overlooked. There are other things that seem to take priority when it comes to those two days.
Take a look at our anniversary. It falls right after my birthday and right before the Rookie’s birthday. It seems that we push celebrating our anniversary to the side so that we can focus on at least the Rookie’s birthday.
Then your birthday falls one of two days, either right during the NCAA Final Four or on Opening Day for MLB. Remember, I was the husband who planned your birthday at a bar so that I could watch the KU Jayhawks in the Final Four. Either way, at that time I am generally distracted and tend to forget about your birthday. OK, maybe I don’t forget I feel like I am too busy to think about your birthday.
Now, with that being said, you might wonder how you can put up with me when I do things like that. Well, it takes a special women to put up with a guy who will forget (that is not the right word but only you know exactly what I mean) about our anniversary and your birthday
But that is one of the reasons I fell in love with you. You were able to look past that and realize that even though I might be a bit distracted on important days, you know that I still love you as well.
I’ve been waking up next to you for 6 years (unless you don’t count the year or two that I worked overnights during our marriage) and I couldn’t imagine waking up next to anyone else. I knew two weeks into dating each other that you would be the one and it was only a matter of a couple of months till I emailed my mom telling her that I had believed I had met the one. Was I right!
I joke that it feels longer than 6 years. It is a compliment when you really think about it. It feels longer than 6 years because we have been through so much in those 6 years. Between you going back to school, me going through three jobs and being unemployed between two of the jobs, the Rookie and his antics, and buying our house, that is more than many people go through before they reach their middle 30s.
Honestly, I can not wait to see what the next 6 years and beyond brings us. If it is anything like the first 6 years, we are in for a wild ride and there is no one else that I would want to be on that ride with than you.
I Love You!
The Rookie Dad
