Hey it's you, 12 years later. FIRST, lets clear a few questions I am sure you have:
- Your children are adorable and the girls love to dance. Your girls look just like you :).
- Yes, child birth wrecks your body, but is completely worth it.
- You have that blonde, headed little boy you dreamed of, he is a heart breaker and loves you so much.
- You have so much better fashion sense now, so trust me, life as a mom is pretty glamorous :).
Quit stressing about Shane. I know he is pissing you off and is having a hard time with this whole commitment / relationship thing. I know he is back and forth with you and seems to spending too much time with his buddies. I know you are pissed and you just want a big fat diamond and be married.
Patience, my dear. PATIENCE!
It gets better. Actually, life is fantastic these days.
Shane is the best man in the world and loves you unconditionally.
Guess what? You are happier than you could even imagine. This man makes your every day even better, and even with three kids (oh yeah, you have three dogs, can you believe it?) he shows you way more love than now. I know it sounds insane and totally lame, but trust yourself, I know what I am talking about! Let me tell you a few things about him that will rock your world:
Shane loves our kids so much it makes your heart flip. He will do anything for them. The best part, these kids love him so much and think he is the greatest man in the world...you could not have chosen a better daddy for your three kids.
He goes to all the dance competitions and recitals without a complaint. He gets furious when Claire does not win to the point of ready to kick some ass :). He cheers loud and is definitely her biggest fan. Look how handsome he is with your girl and giving her flowers :)
Oh yeah, Shane is bald (well he is losing his hair and he just shaves his head). As you can tell, he is even hotter :)
He still wears stinky, dirty, hats....and you still secretly love him in them...every once in awhile he will turn them backwards still :).
He hugs and kisses these kids all the time. He does the same with you. You still get butterflies.
He is still the funniest guy you know. You are going to laugh for the rest of your life :)
He even dresses up to match the family for Halloween! He takes as many pictures as you ask (mostly without complaining) and is always a good sport for you in all your shenanigans!
He is so good at buying jewelry! He loves to give it to you and has great taste!
This little girl can do no wrong in his book. He tries but she has him wrapped.
He always makes you go on in to church and he waits back in the hall until Bree stops crying :). He knows so much about the Bible and is a FANTASTIC Christian role model to the three kids.
Obviously, you have nothing to worry about and need to chill out. Your life has barely started and the best it yet to come. Love that man and give him his time. He loves you so much and will be there for the rest of your life.
Love - Me
Happy Father's Day Shane! We love you so much!! Claire, Owen, and Bree and so blessed to be able to call you daddy...and I am so blessed you are my baby daddy :).
