Family Dynamics

I don’t brag on Mr. Big Truck nearly as much as I should. Come November we’ll be married a year. I have no clue where the past year has gone but, what I do know is that I have hands down the most amazing husband in the world!

What makes him so amazing you ask? Well, I will tell you.
His love for me. Never once have I ever question his love and affection for me. There is not a day that goes by that he doesn’t make it a point to tell me he loves me. I have to admit, I love that about him. I don’t question where he stands. I KNOW.

He is a father and a daddy. So many men out there are fathers, but it takes a real man to be a daddy. To me a daddy is someone who not only helped you create your little person, but he is also someone who is hands on and is not afraid to get pooped on. Literally. Since day 1 Mr. Big Truck has been a hands on daddy, and I don’t mean day one as in the day #babybigtruck was born. I mean day one from September 24, 2013 when I told him I was pregnant. He painstakingly worked on the nursery all the way down to the hand stenciling on the wall. Once she was born he was not afraid to help out with her at all. He has changed just as many poopy diapers as I have all without complaining. Not to mention he will rock a pink diaper bag like no ones business!

Since I have gone back to work he has taken on the role of stay at home daddy. Is it what we wanted? No, but ya know what, I am beyond glad that #babybigtruck is home with her daddy. I could go on and on about how good of a daddy he is.

Along with the role of stay at home dad, he has also taken on the responsibility of taking care of the house. He takes care of all the outside maintenance of the yard and house, and he also takes care of things inside. He has spent countless hours redoing things in the house like the hallway, painting and re-painting the things I tried to paint among other things. There is no set allocation of chores in our household, we just do what needs to be done. If there is a mess, one of us cleans it. If there are dishes, one of us washes them. If dinner needs to be made, one of us makes it. I will not lie, typically Mr. Big Truck will cook dinner, especially during the week since I am at work, but I also will cook. He grocery shops, helps out with he dogs, takes the trash out, you name it he does it and he does it without complaining.

While we may not have the most conventional marriage roles we do what works for us.
With all that said, Mr. Big Truck thank you. Thank you for all you do. Thank you for who you are. Thank you for your love and dedication as my husband and our daughters daddy. We love you more than you will ever know.
