Most girls dream of hearing “You had me at hello.” or “What are you talking about? Your thighs are perfect!” or “I make six figures and I want to spend it all on you.”
But not this girl. These days, what makes me swoon is more along the lines of “Come here, buddy. Let me wipe your nose.”
My husband was the first to change Lil Man’s diaper. And as I sat up in the hospital bed watching that little simple act of fatherhood, I just couldn’t believe it. It was as if all of a sudden, he was a different person. A better version of his perfect self.
Watching him go from being my husband to being a father has been amazing. He’s gone from cautiously taking care of this tiny little being, to genuinely hanging out with his best buddy.
And the way my son’s eyes open wide up with pure awe and joy isn’t half bad, either.
