Life as I know it.

Hi, it's Tony. I have not written a blog for Sarah in a while, but I feel its time to add another one of my entries to get some stuff out in the open.  This will most definitely not be the normal type of post you expect to see on her blog.

This blog entry is different because it is all about her.  She never talks about her self, or how awesome she is.  She never talks about the great stuff she just did or got for herself, because well, she doesn't care about her self the way that she cares about US, Her family.  Sarah is the most amazing mother and wife a person could ever dream to meet.  She is kind, loving, and selfless.  She can go the entire day with out a drink of water, or a bite to eat because of the time and effort she is placing into our kids.  She is AMAZING.

When it comes to being a mother, her picture should be in the dictionary next to the word.  Everyday, while I am at work, she is here at the house, being mother, nurse, teacher, chef, dog sitter, wife, navy wife, friend, the list goes on.  She doesn't stop.  Today I called her from work, and asked what she was up to. Like I didn't know the answer.  She replied she was working on the first day of homeschool with the boys, and how much they were already doing.  She told me of their excitement to get started and how much their little faces were lighting up on the lessons they were getting.  Now this made me melt at work.  She already had the kids excited to learn, fed the baby, cleaned up from breakfast, and got the 2 smaller ones playing together nicely, so she could put on her teacher hat, and all done before noon.

Being a teacher is not all she is good at.  I am one of the proudest fathers in the world.  My children are so well behaved that people in public go out of their way to tell us how great they really are.  I may have a part in this, but it is most definitely a small part.  When I am on duty, at work, at the store, the kids are not with a baby sitter or day care, they are with mommy.  The behavior they have learned, the respect for others, and their things, and the respect for us as their parents is mostly due to her.  I couldn't ask for better children, and I think this is why we have 6, with no end point in sight.

And now comes the last part.  The part of being my wife, and more impressive, putting up with me and my sh*t.  I am not perfect.  I know this.  I can be a real a**hole to her sometimes, I can have my lazy days, my sit there and work on android all night days, and my just plain off days.  But good or bad, she loves me, and takes care of me.  She doesn't give up on me, she stands her ground and waits for me to come back to her, and apologize because I was being silly or mean.  I love her, and she loves me unconditionally.  She rocks my world in every aspect, and I still ask myself from time to time if I really deserve such an amazing woman.  I know that I don't always tell her enough, but I feel I am the luckiest man in the world, and most definitely will be annoying her for the rest of my life.  I already have visions of being the little old couple in the walgreens, looking at what little items we can afford to get our grandchildren.

This post was for Sarah.  I wanted everyone to know how great she is, and how much I love her for being an amazing wife and mother.

I love you Sarah.

Tony.
