Today we all three went to get our hair cut. I was talking with the stylist while she was cutting Waldo’s hair and I was reminded of something; Just how lucky we are.
Both Waldo and I work from home, I know, majorly lucky. I’ve worked from home since Lil was about 6 months old and Waldo has since we left Montana almost 4 years ago. Lily has no idea what it’s like to want to show her Daddy her latest drawing and he’s not around to see it. Lucky!
The stylist asked a question about Lily playing with her Papa (Waldo’s Dad) while we worked and I replied that he doesn’t watch her during the day, but he usually plays with her while we cook dinner. Lucky girl.
A few minutes later Rochelle (the Stylist) said “wait a minute, did you say you cooked dinner together?”
To which Waldo replied “Yes we do. Christy does most of it but I help.” Lucky me.
Rochelle then asked if we plan the meals together and Waldo explained that we do. I believe at this point she looked at me with big ole bug eyes and I said “I know, I’m really lucky” and I am.
We then went on to talk about how we go grocery shopping together and since we work from home we are together 24/7 and we like it that way.
She asked if we ever just want a break from each other and we told her the truth “no, we like being together”.
And it is completely 100% the truth. We like being together. We can easily do things separately and do on occasion, but for the most part we enjoy each others company and prefer to spend our time together.
During our conversation I said that it probably helps that we were friends for about 12 years before we got together and also that I was in a really bad relationship during 10 of those years so I am completely aware of how lucky I am and don’t take advantage of it.
Lily is lucky to have two parents who enjoying being together and like each other. Waldo and I are lucky to have each other and we know it. We are very lucky people.
In a week in a half we will celebrate our 6th wedding anniversary. I know I’m a little early with this, but happy anniversary Honey, I’ve had the best 6 years of my life and I can’t wait to see what the next 6 and the 6 after that and the 6 after that and 6 after that (and on and on) have in store for us. I love you.
Us on our wedding day.
6 years later. (This picture was taking by Lil on Waldo’s birthday 2-1-14)
