The secret. It’s so weird but since I posted my last entry I’ve come across so many people feeling what I’m feeling about marriage after kids being tough. One blogger put it so well, she wrote a post called “I forgot how to wife” and you can read it here. And it is so true! We’re all so busy being moms that we forget that we were actually people and wives first. My marriage is so important to me, I love my hubby so much. But I’m so busy focusing on Tristan that I’m forgetting how to be a wife. One day Tristan will leave home and then it will just be the 2 of us and if we’ve drifted too far apart we’ll never make it back to each other and that’s the last thing I want. I committed to being with Shaun until the day I died and that’s what I intend to do so I’m trying to focus on how to wife again and I can feel it starting to (slowly) come back. I guess it’s like riding a bike, you never forget how to do it you just need to find your balance again.
Something I just read on the The Gotham Institute page: “…I think marriage is constantly choosing to be a team.” How beautiful is that? ?
