The Greatest Gift


This post began as part of the Lillebaby Love Letters Application I was encouraged to write by a friend. It's turning into such a great moment of reflection. Thank you as always Lillebaby for helping me love my current role just a wee bit more! xoxox

When it comes to gifts, my husband has given me the greatest one of all. He has blessed me with 2 amazing children, adopted my 2 older children, AND allowed me to be a stay at home mom. He goes above and beyond when it comes to appreciating my special role and he thanks me for all that I do. I’m a big advocate for attachment parenting, breastfeeding, babywearing, and my husband refers to me as the “Crunchy Mama” but he’s behind me 110% and isn’t afraid to change a diaper, puree up some baby food, turn the garden under so we can plant even more yummy foods next year, and yes…he even babywears. He’s the dad babywearing at home as well as at the county fair. He can tell you the different between a woven wrap and a soft structured carrier and he was excited when I decided to start a local babywearing group (I think he just liked the idea of left over cookies after the meetings). I could tell you that my greatest gift is my children, but the even greater gift is having a loving supportive husband who has given me the gift of time so I can enjoy our children, nurture them, watch them grow, and be the primary person in their world during these critical first years!
