I’m no relationship expert (yes I am), but I did keep a smile on her face for over 15 years. We’ve been married for 7.5 years now, lived on both sides of the country and raising four children under the age of four. Our lives drastically change by the minute.
With everything happening so fast, one thing I realized is that it’s essential to get to know her daily. She’s not the same girl I met in the high school cafeteria. And I’m not the same Fubu, XXXL White tee wearing boy with braces. We’ve grown. If I missed talking to her in a week, so much has happened. If she doesn’t talk to me in a day, she don’t know me anymore. She used to know me. I’ve changed.
I exaggerated a little bit, but you get the point. I’ve learned to take time to get to her daily and to listen actively. I don’t want to miss a thing.
Aside from being the father to our children, she needs me to be her husband just as I need her to be my wife.
Shoutout to Anaiah, Zariah, Yasir and Zaire. You are dreams come true and add so much color to our lives. But if it wasn’t for Mommy and Daddy time (And Daddy’s mackin’), y’all wouldn’t have gotten here.
Here’s a picture we didn’t allow the kids to photobomb.
