Happy Birthday, dear wifey!

(Daddy blogs)

Today is the birthday of the most beautiful woman I know.

She’s a fantastic wife to me and loving mother to our three monkies. I have also been thinking about a few things. Things that are good, things that are crazy, things that are frustrating, things that are fun and all these things feel true almost every single day.

Obviously, we are grateful for each one of our adorable monsters. But you know how ferocious these little buggers can get - they are like Gremlins but meaner.

So as a husband and as a father, it is great to know that your wife is always there to do the best for your family. She spends a lot of time in coaching Ash in his composition-writing, involving Ayd in whipping up weekend meals for the family and convincing Ale that LEGO bricks and tissue paper are not healthy for consumption.

And as everyone who has been through this stage knows, there are tons and tons of cleaning up, breaking up fights, peace-making, story-reading, negotiating iGadgets playtime and dealing with meltdowns. It is hard work. And I could never have asked for a better half to be the calming influence in the family.

What is my point to all this?

Really nothing actually other than to wish my wife a "Happy Birthday" and to take a moment to appreciate the fact that I am lucky I ended up with someone who not only tolerates my temper and impatience, but also someone who I really want to be perfect for.

I might still be a work in progress but I guess there is a lot to be thankful for and I do look forward to going on this journey called life together, taking in the good, the bad, the sweetness, the crappy, whatever. Because at the end of the day, I am just glad that she is right beside me all the way.

Happy Birthday, Dearrie. Life with you is definitely a Treat!
