Hey there Lovelies! Its Thursday, thank heavens, and its time for another Guest Blogger full of fabulosity. Its Amber from Goodnight Moon! I just love her. She's gorgeous, funny, super honest, and has the cutest family ever. Be sure to check her out :)
(and I must admitI get super nervous writing for other blogs)
what life has been like
transitioning back to
whatever that is
my Fox returned home from his deployment.
As soon as the chickens
brought Fox home
I must admit
it was alittle awkward.
I was actually glad that the kids were here
as a buffer.
They went crazy
all around him.
I just sat there
watched the craziness.
exchanged smiles as our eyes locked on to each other.
We couldn't keep our eyes off one another.
It was such a great feeling.
It was like we were teenagers again
playing the hard to get game.
We really didn't speak much because the kids
were acting so crazy excited.
When we finally had a moment together
we just embraced.
Our hugs were so tight
our kisses were so
he wanted to see my new
I think he fell in love all over again
It was like we were on our honeymoon again.
There wasn't a moment
besides when he had to go back to work
which was immediately
that we weren't together.
We were constantly
eye gazing at each other
leaving love notes around the house for each other
saying "I love you" face to face
feeding each other grapes
it was pretty awesome to finally have him back
in the flesh.
I looked over every inch of his body
no kidding either!
Something that I realized
was that I had forgotten
what his feet looked like.
Isn't that weird?
I looked at his toes
I had to take a second look.
I had forgotten that his toe beside his big toe
is bigger then his big toe.
It made me sad to think that during his deployment
I had forgotten what his toes looked like.
The kids had a hard time when Fox had to go back to work.
They completely freaked out when they woke up
came into our room
daddy wasn't laying in bed.
When I told them that
"daddy was at work"
they started crying for him.
Daddy has been at "work" for the past 7 mths
in their little minds
that meant that daddy
was going to be gone for a long time again.
Now everynight when we tuck the kids into bed
Fox has to tell them
that when they wake up
he won't be here
he will be home for dinner.
Now that Fox has been home for 3 weeks
things are back to normal.
It's as if he never left.
Which is a really weird feeling.
Fox isn't just the "fun" parent any longer
he now gets on the kids for misbehaving
I can be a "fun" parent again.
He does all his husband duties around the house
some of my housewife duties
which has been awesome!
He has also made himself a wish list
of really expensive gadgets.
Like I said
it's as if he never left.
can finally say
under the same moon.
