My Husband, My Prince

For all the things you are sweet husband, you just don't get many thanks, so...

Thank you for coming home with a smile on your face even when your day is rough and the kids are crying and the house is a wreck.

Thank you for allowing me to stay home and raise our babies.

Thank you for taking care of our finances and never making me feel guilty about the student loans and debt I brought to our marriage.

Thank you for loving our kids with all your heart and soul.

Thank you for loving me in my sweats with no makeup on.

Thank you for having the best parents any daughter in law could ever ask for.

Thank you for ignoring the bad grammar in the previous sentences.

Thank you for sticking with me when I've messed up BIG.

Thank you for loving our gardens, our home and our pets.

Thank you for tirelessly listening to Gilmore Girls (and for buying me the DVD set for V-day.)

Thank you for asking me questions about sewing, mommyhood, and all those other girly things even though you don't give a lick.

Thank you for turning off the TV to listen to me and the kids.

Thank you for being the best labor and delivery coach a laboring mommy could ever ask for. (Again the grammar...)

Thank you for putting up with my snoring when I'm big and pregnant.

Thank you for teaching me to love being frugal.
Thank you for always having a cold drink for me--and usually a whole cooler full!
Thank you for being prepared in any circumstance.
Thank you for being a directional genius.
Thank you for being a fantastic handyman.
Thank you for loving my parents.
Thank you for your giving spirit and for always wanting to help people in need.

Thank you for caring about the planet and recycling EVERYTHING! (Even thank you for the giggle I still get when you fish my "trash" out of the can. Future generations will thank you too!)

Most of all, thank you for your undying loyalty, character and integrity.

You are a fabulous husband, dad, and human being.
