Being a mom teaches me to be brave. Being a wife let's me be taken care of. (You could say I am needy.) A mom takes care of. A wife is taken care of.
Bravery doesn't mean we aren't scared, it means do something even though we are scared. So while I was scared to be home alone with 3 kiddos, I also got the chance to be brave. Knowing I would do whatever it took to keep them safe. Which is a good thing, since I discovered the 3rd day that I had slept with the front door unlocked the night before! (See why I didn't tell you he was away!)
The kids and I had fun this week. We stayed busy and hung out with Nonnie and Papa in the evenings. She made us dinner 2 nights and we spent a lot of time swimming in the pool.
I am just so happy to have my family all together again. We work better together. I'm so happy to have my husband home and next to me again. I love that we don't get tired of each other and we love to spend every waking and sleeping moment together. I love my close knit family unit. I'm glad I get to be the wife of Jonathan and the mom of my super great kids.
So yeah, there wasn't much point to this post other than to say, I love my husband and I agree with what Kairi told him tonight. "You are NOT going to go far away without us again!"
