Day 6 of 31 at TWT!
Saturday night, and my head is snuggled into Husband's shoulder. His warm arms wrap me in a cocoon of love.

Upstairs, Little Sweetie is sprawled in her crib, hands flopped above her head and legs bent like a little frog. Silence on the monitor assures us she's off in peaceful dreamland.

We're nearing the end of Inside Out, and like many other Disney/Pixar movies, its sweet story has had tears prickling at the corners of my eyes for a few minutes. I burrow closer into Husband's chest when there's suddenly a sputtering sound above my head.

"Are you crying?" As I turn, he starts shaking with goofy laughter. I run my finger down the tear tracks on his cheeks, and he convulses in a combination of sheepish laugh-crying. "It's so sad!"

"I know. This movie would have been totally different if we didn't have Little Sweetie yet. I never want anything to ever make her sad!" I wipe the corners of my own eyes and hug him tighter.

My sweet, perfect soulmate. How can I be so lucky???

"I used to be able to hold it in, but now that we have her..."

"Oh, really?" I tease, poking him in the armpit. "So you held it in during WALL-E and Up?"

He sticks out his tongue and pulls me closer.


  1. Oh, so nice. Spending a special evening, watching a special movie and sharing tears because of you know who. Children bring out the best in us, don't they? Love how you wrote this, and that you shared.

  2. You know you're with the right guy when you can cry together at movies. We don't do it often, but when we cry together (at movies), it usually is because of who we are now as parents.

  3. Sounds like you really do have a sweet, perfect soulmate! So glad you found each other!

  4. You do have a good man! Perspective changes once there's a little sweetie in your lives. What a great evening for you.


Comments make me happy and I'd love to hear from YOU! :-)
