8 Years

>> Tuesday, July 19, 2011

Facebook is trying it's best to help out every dude everywhere:

Thanks Facebook. However, I don't think simply sending her a Facebook message is enough. Now, if I post about it on my BLOG.... THAT'S enough. ;)

8 years ago

Dear Pharmie:

I'm sorry I can't be with you today. I hope Henry is being "cooperative" for you.

I love watching you as a Mother. You think I'm the patient one, but I've seen you show so much patience with Henry as he's destroying your nipples. ANYTHING gets near my nipples, and they get a judo chop to the skull. (It's a good thing I'm not the breast-feeder.) You're such a great Mom to this little guy who's still figuring out what he wants / needs. When you 2 are laying on the couch, I keep looking over and smiling. I love you both so much.

It can't just be me: it feels like WAY MORE than 8 years, right? And not in a bad way. We're both 30 years old - eight years is a good chunk of our lives, but far from our WHOLE life. But I just CAN NOT imagine my life without you. Thank you for sharing who you are with me. And thank you for giving us this great little guy:

Happy anniversary. I love you. See you soon.

p.s. I got you a little gift. It's hidden somewhere in the house.

p.p.s. Too many places too look? Try looking inside of my red toolbox in the basement.

p.p.p.s. It's Henry's birthstone. :)

For a stranger, you sure do know how to tough someone's heart.

As a new(ish) mom, I would love it if you would just go ahead and email my husband a script for him to read on our anniversary that is coming up. Seriously, that is some good stuff.

Nothing like a good mommy cry on a Tuesday morning. Sheesh.

You made me cry. Thank you :) I found something special in your tool box - not to be confused with the "something special" Henry keeps leaving me... I love you!

Lindsay 9:08 AM, July 19, 2011  

Hmm where is this toolbox again? ;)

Happy Anniversary!!

Major points for you on this one! Husbands, take note!

Yay Pharmie! Glad you found it! Hope you like it!! :)

And Annette: my wife saw a photo like this a year or 2 ago. She wanted one with our rings and our little guy, so we took that photo a few weeks ago. Glad you like it!

Hey don't think I've ever posted before, but i really like your blog! I was a collegiate swimmer (distance) and am starting to think about swimming again (it's been 7 years in Feb). Your training is fun to watch and your dedication is amazing! But the reason i posted was that my (and husbands) anniversary was 7/19 too! only 3 years ago though...so happy anniversary, congrats on the baby, keep rockin' the tri's (more swimming)!
