Sometimes he just does everything so right...I'm talking of my husband of course. The other night I had made a comment about our 2 year old being in our bed. I said, "Do we need to have another baby to get this one out of our bed?!" I was kidding, but Brett paused and said the most marvelous thing. He looked at me and said, "You know, I'd like to have some time to just enjoy you." My breath caught and heat rushed through my body. In that simple sentence he said so much. He liked me, he loved me and he wanted to spend time with me. Time and adventures without a baby on my hip. That may sound selfish to some of you. But to me it was soooo romantic and lovey!
You know those sensations you had in the very beginning? Those butterflies and flashes of hot and cold. Those oh my goodness he just looked at me moments! Those moments when he took your hand and you thought he would feel you tremble at his touch. Well, some days I really miss those moments. They kind of go on a long vacation after years of being together. I've discussed this before with friends who are in love with their husband. And we agree, how romantic is it when your husband takes your hand, you don't feel all those thousands of sensations, yet, you also feel so comfortable that you cannot tell where you end and he begins. Sigh...I love my husband. However, I get back those giddy moments every now and then when I see him somewhere in town on a week day or, this is the best-always gets me, when he is busy doing something and then starts singing...Oh the flood of lovey thoughts!! I love it when he sings, hums or whistles. It just gets me.
I had a rough day yesterday. My husband being the quiet brooder that he is felt the best way to speak to me was to distract me from the former thoughts. He took me to see Twilight again. How self-sacrificing is that?! All in the name of love. While the movie totally deviates from the book, it does entertain me and keep me from thinking. After the movie, he said, "So why does she fall in love with him? Because he's rude and a jerk?" I laughed and said, "I knew you'd see the parallels in our relationship and theirs!" He laughed too. You'd need to have been there all those years ago to know what I'm talking about, but seriously...parallels--minus the whole vampire human thing.
