Breaking My Vow

I'm usually opposed (and so is my husband) to the stereotypical "My Husband is so Awesome" post.  At one point I vowed to never post one, but I am breaking that vow today.

So here it is:

My husband is awesome.
(Sorry, babe, I had to do it because you are, and this is technically my journal and I want my posterity to know they had a very cool Great Great Great Great Grandfather.  You know, family history stuff.)

One of his New Year's resolutions was to be a better husband.  Not that he wasn't awesome before, but there is always room for improved awesomeness.  There is definitely opportunity for me to be a better wife such as maybe planning ahead for dinner more than one day a week.  Anyway, he's been faithfully keeping his resolution.  It only takes small and simple things to make me happy.  Wiping down the kitchen table and sweeping the kitchen floor for me at 9PM every night makes me VERY happy.  I know that sounds lame, but it amazes me how such small and simple things can make such a huge difference.  And those are just a couple of the simple things he's done in the past 7 weeks.

I told him the other night that righteousness is HOT!!

I can't believe I just blogged about my husband's awesomeness, but he deserves it every now and then.  :) Even after nearly 10 years of marriage and almost 7 children later, I'm still in love with him.  I even love him if he doesn't sweep the floor or makes me watch The Bachelor in solitude. 

I'll be back tomorrow for more about me and my life of pregnancy complaints, potty training, and maybe even a picture of one or more of my ragamuffin children.

Now here is a picture that Emily drew.  She asked me, "Do you think this is a picture of a butt, or someone kneeling?"  You decide.


  1. haha..i am going to say someone kneeling..but if I had to pick that it looked like a butt...then it would be butt of a very OLD OLD lady sitting on the "john". Haha I think this picture could go either way.....that is too funny.

  2. that is quite the crack, if we go butt! glad you still like your husband, we think he is pretty awesome, too!

  3. He must have had awesome parents! :)

  4. Yes, I was thinking an old person's (as in old is 80+) droopy butt. Although I can see Emily kneeling angelically on a little round rug, hands neatly folded, head slightly bowed praying (for her brothers to fall down the stairs on their....). Aw, sweet Emily.
