Prince charming lives at my house

I was going to save this for my anniversary, but I decided to Pour my Heart Out today instead.

My husband is a living, breathing prince charming. No, it’s not because he’s super classy or rich or puts his boxers in the laundry basket. Or because he always puts his dishes in the dishwasher (because he doesn’t). It’s mostly because he treats me like a princess.

When Hub and I met, I didn’t want a relationship. I liked things the way they were. I’m not saying it was love at first sight, but I was definitely smitten from the beginning. Things moved pretty fast with us, but we both just knew from very early that we were each other’s “one”.

My relationship with my husband doesn’t define my life, it enhances it. His strengths are my weaknesses and vice versa. We’re truly the perfect match — neither of us are perfect, but we’re perfect for each other.

He makes me laugh all the time. No one else might think it was funny, but I do. He’s silly, crazy, and downright witty. He’s very handsome, too. His smile can light up a room. Today I was talking with my Mom and she said he could “charm a snake” — she didn’t mean that in a bad way, just in a way that he can make the nastiest, grumpiest person happy.

He stands up for me and fights for me. For our family. When we were having issues with the daycare person over how much milk I was giving the baby, he calmly explained to her how breastfeeding worked, how it’s different, what to expect. He had listened to every word I told him, even when I didn’t think he was listening.

He’s my shelter in a storm.

My husband is caring — the most sensitive, caring man I’ve ever met. He has a soft heart for animals. We’ve adopted five cats and one dog, and we’ve fostered more than I can count. He can’t say no. I don’t want him to.

He’s a tremendous father. Absolutely amazing. Hub plays with Luke, makes funny faces, sings songs and helps him play with toys. I’ll say it here for all the Internet to see — Hub was the first person to make Luke smile a real smile. Along with the love comes worry. He worries about Luke all the time and sometimes it drives me to the nuthouse, but it’s out of love for our little blessing.

He also cares about me deeply and purely. He knows exactly what to say when I’m at my breaking point. Last night I was exhausted. I hadn’t stopped from the time I stepped out of bed until the second I stepped back in. He rolled over and spoke over the white noise of our sound machine, whispering so we didn’t wake up the baby: “You’re my best friend and a wonderful wife and mother. You’re doing awesome. I love you.”

Hearing those words gives me the renewed spirit to get up the next day and do it all over again.

I was lucky to grow up in a home with an outstanding father. He reads this blog, I know he does. He checks it all the time. Hi Dad, thank you for showing me what a husband and father should be.

Hub doesn’t read my blog, but he should. Hi Hubby, thank you for being the best husband and father to my son I could ever wish for. You’re my prince charming.

    What a great blog! I'm glad he is such a great husband for you and dad for Luke. What a sweet thing to say to you last night too. You've got yourself a prize. :)

  • Liz

    YAY for Kelsey!

    And not that I ever thought anything other than good things about him, but that day care story leveled him up about 3 when i read it.

  • foxy

    Awwww, this is so sweet! A little birdie needs to let your hubs know that he should venture over here for a quick gander. :) It is a glorious feeling being in love with your very best friend. I share your loving feelings for my own hubs. :)

  • From Tracie

    This is so very sweet!!

    Yay for good dads and good husbands!

    I think it is great that you didn't wait until your anniversary to share this, it makes it even more special.

  • just call me jo

    That is nice. I wish my daughter had one of those. Alas, she got a toad. (Don't tell her. She knows how I feel.) Lucky you.

  • Shell

    Aw, he should definitely read this! So sweet!

  • Ms.Wasteland

    You should print this out for him! Sounds like you got yourself a keeper there. He is going to be a wonderful role model for Luke, too.

  • Crazy Shenanigans-JMO

    Aw, I love this!!! How sweet! I'm glad you guys found each other and I love how sweet he was and told you those sweet nothings.

  • Stephanie in Suburbia

    This was so sweet, but my favorite part was: My relationship with my husband doesn't define my life, it enhances it.

    This is what I've said about my husband so many times! It's the best relationship in my life because I don't need him, I want him.

  • Hutch

    I really, really love this post! I may be a bit jaded at times, but this right here just shows that it's all worth it. I'm so glad you're with the one perfect for you :)

  • Erin

    I love to read about how awesome husbands can be. My hubby is right up there too. I am so thankful for him everyday!

  • JMJE

    Awe. That is a great post. He sounds like a great guy and a good match for you.

  • KLZ

    Hooray for good men. They're worth their weight in chocolate.

  • MrsJenB

    Ahhh my heart is melting from this! You're one lucky lady!

    And you make me smile to think of how my husband will be (someday I hope!) when our time comes. I hope I get so lucky.

  • Mama Insomnia

    I feel the same way about my husband. Right down to the fact that sometimes he'll remember things I said and I'll be all like "you were actually listening??". Awesome post!

  • Lauren

    I must be hormonal today because this made me cry a little. SO SWEET! I could have written this about my own husband minus the part about him being a dad because we don't have one of those yet. But definitely keeping the part about the dishwasher and the laundry basket.

  • Mama Zen

    This is so sweet!

  • 400 Wakeups

    Oh darling, I LOVE this post!!! I knew right away that you and hubs were the perfect match…not in a one consumes the other, but you compliment each other. And it's so easy to tell that he adores you and you, him. Your love for each other is contagious and I want to thank you for spreading it all over the Internet. I'm all warm and fuzzy inside now. ;-D
