Not a grumble.

Jayden and I fell asleep on the couch last night. He woke up because he began to itch.

I rubbed him down with soothing cream and by then he was screaming because he hates being itchy and sitting through being rubbed.

I grabbed a sippy of water from the fridge and stumbled up the stairs with him over my shoulder.

I had a headache and I needed to use the washroom, so that’s where we stopped. I shuffled around quickly because he was still not very happy. We headed into the bedroom where Greg was still sleeping.

We invaded the bed and he let us get comfy. We were both welcomed with kisses.

Not a grumble.

And I know I keep doing this weird thing with my sentences. I just don’t like how short paragraphs look. They look like announcements and this is not an announcement, but an example of why I love my man.

    :) Aww! Sweet. If you only knew how many “just because I love this man” posts I’ve done, you’d think I were stalking my own husband haha It’s nice to give your man props for public consumption every now and then – boosts his ego LOL

    Found you from Picket Fence Blogs… lovely post! I so adore hearing people share how they love their spouses publicly… so often gripes make the headlines. This is what family should look like!!!

    Hehe that’s cute. We don’t let our son sleep with us though. He still wears pullups to bed and he has this weird talent where he will pee himself and all over us… yet the pullups are still dry. Yea… very weird.

    And you should protest why you love your man whenever you need to. Heck, just make a post, place his picture in it, and say “I love him.” That’s all. You’ll give your readers some jealous eye candy. ;)

    Take care,
