Today, next week, I will be reunited with my husband, after over three months of being apart. Having met in Iceland, you would think I’d be used to it…I am absolutely not, to be quite honest, I don’t know how I could live without him. We both agreed on my going to France so that I could be with my family and get better, but we both know it was a very decision to make. I left with a tiny baby, and I am going home with a little girl who has her own personality, has two teeth, eats, laughs, tricks, crawls, sits, drinks from Mama’s glass and even pulls herself up! It breaks my heart that he had to miss all this…she is just not the same baby! It was really hard for him to see her on Skype but I am sure the excitement she would express whenever she’d hear the computer ring was priceless! She just knew it was him. And it made us happy. In about a week, we will be reunited as a family.
- His love. His arms. His support.
- Parenting as a couple.
- Talking his ears off until 3am after drinking Red Bull. He’d say “Deb, we are not getting you Red Bull anymore. Ever.”
- Sleeping in on the weekends while he looks after the baby and serves me breakfast in bed. He makes the best pancakes!
- Tickling him. He hates it and I love to annoy him.
- Our talks about our dreams and hopes for the future.
- Watching our favorite shows together.
- I missed cooking for him. I can’t believe I am saying that because before him, I didn’t know how and I was interested in any ways.
- His smile. He and Sixtine share the same dimple cheeks, it is absolutely adorable.
- Bedtime. There is something about the night that makes you want that special someone was there.
- Bottle washing. I really don’t like washing them…and he probably doesn’t love it either but does it out of love!
- His interaction with the baby. I just love seeing them together, there is so much love between them.
- His family. I love his family with all my heart.
- I missed not being able to enjoy my friends, my family and the things I love with him. It was like being at a great party without your best friend.
- His optimism.
- The little things he does everyday that say “I love you”
What are the things you love or would miss the most you had to be separated from your husband/partner for three months?
