Part 18 in the series 30 Things My Kids Should Know About Me.
What do you think your spouse loves most about you?
I can’t be the only one whose first thought is boobs, right? And of course when my children are older and read this they will roll their eyes and say how gross I am.
But really, what do I think my husband loves most about me?
I don’t know. I could sit here and list a lot of things that I know he loves about me. But the one thing he loves the most? That is more tricky.
I could also make an even longer list of all the things about me that drive him the most insane. Can you say 2,000 word blog post?
I knew you could!
In the almost 11 years we have been married he made a comment to me one time that meant the most to me. He said I was the glue that held this family together. That was hands down the sweetest thing he ever said about me.
But then I think about it and realize that while I know he loves the kind of mother I am, the way I care for and love our children, those are things about me as parent. And don’t really relate to what he loves about me. Something that is basic. Something that is part of my personality. Something that will remain long after the children have grown up and moved on.
So at the end of the day while I sit here and rack my brain, I am OK with saying that I don’t know. And you know what? That is alright. Because I do know he loves me. I know he loves my smile, my eyes, the way I laugh, the way I love him, the way I hate making plans and sticking to a schedule, how I am a horrible and awful crabby person before 9am, how trusting I am, my sense of humor, that I wear my emotions on my sleeve, and even how after 10 years, and I know it drives him nuts, I still can’t make up my mind and pick a place to eat dinner.
