My husband is a kind and loving and responsible man. He enjoys conversing with me more than playing video games and he delights in tickling our children more than mowing the yard or fixing the car. Because he places such a high value on our family, he doesn't often get a chance for time away - time with other men.
Tonight, his parents were watching the kids and we went out on a date. We got a call toward the end of the evening letting us know that the 2 month old was inconsolable and needed Mommy, pronto. We were headed home when he got a note from a friend that his house was estrogen-free. Even though it was still sort of date night, I sent him on his merry way. Oddly, he was reluctant. I think because I'm so important to him. It makes me all warm and fuzzy to know that I am more important than the rare nights when he gets to hang out with the men in his life who encourage him and challenge him. I am so grateful that I am loved.
