Has there been any instance like this??? I can’t remember. But you know what, if ever there was or there will be, I have nothing to worry. I always tell hubby, “Dad, if I go first I’m sure you’ll get on in no time, but if you go ahead of me, then my life would be a disaster.” Why? Because hubby knows better than I do. He’s the organized and I am the stubborn. He always knows what to do, while I can’t even decide on my own. Even with the simplest things like, to buy or not to buy, to do this or not to do, to bring this or not at all. You know what I mean?
The only thing that I’m better at are cooking, ironing or maybe bathing Alyssa. But these I’m sure he can do well if he’s not got any choice. I am not the wonder mom who “does it all”. Hubby always helps me in cleaning the house, setting and cleaning the table, doing the grocery and even cooking. I can stay in front of my lappy the whole day without hearing any complaints from him. He doesn’t oblige me to do all the house chores everyday. I don’t even take care of the bills.
It’s sad to realize that I am not so much of a loss, but I guess it’s better so if ever I am taken earlier, it will not be so much of a burden to my family. Now what is this drama? I don’t know… This is just how I feel while I write this and it’s somehow an eye opener to me. I think I should be doing what a good full-time mom really does. Because if not, then I would not have anything to be proud of. I can’t be proud that my career as a full-time mom is harder than it seems, right?
My hubby didn’t grow up to a family where I Love You’s are heard here and there. He also didn’t grow up to a touchy family where hugs and kisses are visible, but even so – you can feel the love running in their family. They are 6, he being the eldest and they are all very close. Hubby is casual when it comes to her parents, but he makes sure that he won’t miss a call every week just to say hello and have a little conversation with them. They do exchange I Love You’s during special occasions like birthdays, anniversaries, mother’s day, father’s day and the like, but since it’s not commonly said a lovely text message is sent.
I can’t find a picture of him with his parents so I’ll just share with you their most recent family picture.
As a father, it’s the other way around. He’s the sweetest father on earth. He tickles, hugs, kisses and plays with Alyssa. The words I Love You is oveflowing and he makes it sure that Alyssa is close to him. Hubby is more of the “giving-in” type. Whenever I say NO, Alyssa goes to him, then he’ll secretly ask for my approval and so he becomes the HERO.
I am just so thankful how my hubby turned into how he is now as a father and I really hope it won’t change until our kid/s grow up.
Join us too at Couple’s Corner and let’s talk about our husbands and fathers this time around.
We, as parents, are so blessed to be granted by God to become parents and so it is just right that we take this role the best way we can. We are not perfect and we can never be, but striving to be enough for our kid/s is something that’s NOT easy peasy. No matter how hard we try to make it as straight-forward as we can, it will always be complicated, though possible.
We, as parents, try to be called as our “kid’s bestfriends”. As of now, it’s easy because our daughter is only 4 years old and she knows that only Mum and Dad will be there for her at all times. But kids do grow really fast and as they do, they are being welcomed by the wider world where it’s not only Mum and Dad, but there are actually a lot more. So to maintain the relationship as bestriends, everyday we try to go down to his age and understand her world. The only thing we don’t do is sit with her and play with her toys, but when it’s pretend phone calling, we do exchange conversation and that’s a good way for us to know how she thinks and how she communicates.
We, as parents, try to balance play vs. rules. We make sure that our daughter grows to become comfortable with us and at the same time, she also knows how to follow us. I am not a strict mom, not even my hubby. But we always make sure that our daughter knows how to distinguish right fromwrong. So far, I would want to believe that we’re on the right path because we are not growing a spoiled brat. At her age, she knows her limits and she lives a low-profile life. She’s not into having so much, in fact she always say, “No Mum, I already have enough.” when it comes to children’s addiction – toys.
We, as parents, will try our best to be the best for our kid/s.
We, as parents, will make sure that we have one goal and one way of rearing our child/ren.
