It’s an easy life being married, you know? Aaahahahahaa, I couldn’t even type that with a straight face. I’m 29, married and I’m a mom. When the hell did that happen?! Last time I checked, I was living the high life of a casual relationship, ok-paying job and parties that only ended at closing time. I had no clue that by the age of 30, I would find myself living the glamorous life of stay at home mom, wife and part time worker.
I never take it for granted as it’s many a’ woman’s dream to do what I do, but some days, I’m not all that thrilled. The being a mom to a toddler part is awesome and horrible all at the same time, but I wouldn’t change it. The really big challenge in life is staying in love with the one person I got to pick to be in my life: the spouse. I often wonder what conned me into a life of smiling, hugging, kissing, fighting, ignoring and loving this Noah guy. He’s an alright guy but why him?
A lot of people pick someone who ends up being like someone they know and trust within their family or friends but Noah was like no one else. He didn’t talk much, but when he did, I ate up every word. We argued and said horrible things to each other, but nothing that ever pushed each other away permanently (obviously). He means well to every one he meets and he is the most loyal friend you could ever ask for. He respects me as a friend, a confidante, his wife, the mother to his child and overall, a human being. He’s an excellent provider and always has our family’s best interest at heart. We may seem awkward and uninterested in each other in public, but behind closed doors, we aren’t that put off by each other.
While we argue, we never go to sleep angry. We find our ways to effectively communicate and it will never be anything that makes sense to anyone else. It’s kind of like twin sibling language. He will always be my soul mate even when I feel like he could use a swift kick in the pants. I try to remember that in all the bad times, they do not compare to all the good we have accomplished together. Never forget how important your partner is as they will always be apart of your heart and soul. Even in the sad days, angry days, happy days, yoga pants/not feeling so hot days, pushing out a child days or even the days of holding each other’s head over a toilet, there is nothing more important or supportive in your life than the one you got to pick to have in your life: husband schmusband.
