Another Five-Minute Friday, brought to you by Lisa-Jo at The Gypsy Mama! This week’s topic to write about for five glorious, stress-free minutes? Every day. And for this week, I know just the subject! 🙂
I wait up every night, whether my little one has gone to bed or not. Whether I’m exhausted by noon or not. I wait up until anywhere from 9 to 11, and just a little after.
Because at that magical hour, just before midnight, my husband comes home from work. Tired and worn out from dealing with the many interesting people at Wal-Mart, he slips in. And I can’t help but grin, even when I’ve been dealing with a fussy baby. Even if he doesn’t take her (like I always think he should…after all, I’ve dealt with her all day!) But I grin because my best friend is home.
The best days are when he opens up and talks about whatever is on his heart. Yes, those days are wonderful. And then sometimes, even if he’s still wired and wide awake, he’ll snuggle in bed with me until right before I doze off because he knows that I sleep better when he’s in the bed too.
Yes, he’ll be around for most of the morning. Yes, sometimes he doesn’t go in until 4 PM. But his coming home is always the best part of my day. Every day. Every day for three years this Tuesday. And a wonderful three years it’s been!

Thankfully, Little Bit was asleep so that I could take a few minutes and write. 🙂 She has been an active little thing here lately. Just like her Daddy!
