Prompt 9:  Describe a time when you were really impressed with your spouse for dealing well with something hard.

I’m always really impressed with Rich when we have a baby, which we’ve done three times now.  Lest you are under any illusion that I am one of those women who are happy-go-lucky and pleasant when they are pregnant, let me reassure you I am no picnic when I’m pregnant.  I’m tired, grouchy, achy and sick for majority of the nine month joy ride.

If you are thinking things get better once the baby gets here, you are sadly mistaken.  I’m a hormonal mess for about five months.  Before I had my first child, I heard about the “baby blues” (sounds so cute and quaint- baby blues) and crazy hormone shifts once the baby comes, but I imagined it wouldn’t be a huge deal since I’ve never been much affected by PMS.

I was wrong.

In any case, Rich should basically be knighted for sticking with me during the entire pregnant/new born phase.  And he does more than just sticking with me.  He never complains about my complaining (which is daily when I’m pregnant), he cooks dinner most every night during my first trimester nausea, he gets up with the other kids once the baby comes so I can sleep in and he basically just lets me be crazy town without making me feel like I’m crazy.

I am VERY impressed and grateful for this!

Ok YOUR turn!  Describe a time you’ve been very impressed by your spouse.

Remember, even thinking it in your mind can help fill your love tank.  So even if you don’t comment- think about it!
