The mushy Valentines Day blog

Non-mushy stuff first.

1. Vote in my lies post below if you haven't already. The lie will be revealed tomorrow. Sure, I said it was going to be today, but I am a liar after all. So tomorrow the truth shall be revealed.

2. Don't forget to head over to
OneWomansWorld today and cast your votes. I'm nominated in a 2nd category - "Best Commenter", as well as "Makes you want to have kids." I'm thrilled to be nominated. Vote for your favorites and spread the love.

Ok, on to the post. I am not a big Valentines person. I believe we should show love to our family members all the time, not just on a day that society says we have to show love. Sure, I like to get flowers and all that fun froofy stuff, but it means more when done spontaneously throughout the year. In spite of thinking that way about Valentines, I can't help feeling overwhelmed with love for the two main guys in my life. Blame it on being surrounded by pink, red, flowers, hearts, etc., but it gets a girl thinking. So today, I bring you my guys.

This is the man:

-Who melts my heart every time I look at this picture and see the love he has for my son.
-Whose spirit I immediately recognized upon meeting for the first time. I knew we had met before.
-Who knows everything about me, all my weaknesses and faults - and loves me anyway.
-Who has seen me naked - and loves me anyway.
-Who puts up with my many mood swings and attitudes - and loves me anyway.
-Who brought me flowers every month the first year of our marriage.
-Who still brings me little gifts and cards to show he cares.
-Who cooks better than I do.
-Who kept me strong during the infertility and always believed we would be blessed with a child.
-Who is stronger in spirit than any other person I have met before.
-Who always sees the best in me and others.
-Who laughs with me (and sometimes at me).
-Who is my best friend, lover, companion, soul mate, my better half, and so many others in every way possible.
-Who makes me a little Rachelle puddle every time he sings a song to me or our son
-Who helped me create the most beautiful child.
-Who would do anything for me and our son.
-Who loves and gives unconditionally.
-Who takes such good care of our son and is such a good Mr. Mom
-Who works so hard at school, work, and home to improve our life now and in the future
-Who is everything I ever wanted in a man, and more.

This is the boy:

-Who ended the years of heartache and pain of trying for a child
-Who made me a mother
-Who helped me believe in miracles
-Who brought and still brings so much joy to me on a daily basis
-Who brightens my world in so many ways.
-Who makes me laugh and smile on a constant basis.
-Who causes me to delight in every little thing you do
-Who I can't wait to rush home to after work
-Who I love to touch pointers with again and again.

-Who can shoot poop almost anywhere.
-Who I want to wake up in the morning so I can see your beautiful smile and hear your coos.
-Who says "Mom, mom, mom" over and over again and I come running.
-Who brings tears to my eyes as I look at you and marvel at your wonderfulness and miraculousness.
-Who makes me want to be a better person so I can be the mom you deserve.

-Who makes being a mom an easy job
-Who is more wonderful and perfect than I ever thought possible.

To my boys, I love you! Thank you for the privilege of knowing and loving you!
