I love my wife, but she's not my mom.

I love my wife, but she's not my Mom. She is the mother of my children.

I find it hard to find an appropriate card for this day. I read every card available in hopes that I'll find one that fits what I want to say, "I don't care about the war marks our kids have left on your body, I just love having sex with you". Shelle would have said to edit that and say, "intimate with", but I'm a guy, I don't say stuff like that.

Shelle doesn't get that she's beautiful, I'm lucky she doesn't because I wouldn't have had a chance if she knew just how hot she was. I tell people all the time that she's hotter on the inside--actually, she says that all the time about people, "She/He is even better looking on the inside", but it applies to her also.

So back to finding her a card. I would have taken a picture and uploaded it here but that's to much work, I'm lucky I'm here.

So here is what it said, "I may not be the smartest man in the world..." (open card) "But then, I managed to trick you into marrying me, so I'm not a total doofus. Happy Mother's Day".

That's close. She should be able to read between the lines. I also wrote a bunch of stuff on the side that should make her cry, which is my goal, cry="intimate with" (wink, wink, nudge nudge).

My kid's card was better. I laughed by myself in the card aisle when I read it. "Everyone thinks their MOM is the best!" (open card) "Which is why I must fight everyone, one at a time, until you, and only you, reign supreme. Wish me luck!" That's funny. Even better, what my boy wrote in her card, "Mom, Happy Mother's Day, and I hope you like this card because I will fight everybody at once until our whole family is just the only people standing". That's my boy. My daughter wrote, "I love you", but she only has so many language skills, she practically said the same thing as my boy in so many words.

Anyway, Shelle we dig you. I dig you because you're hot. The kids dig you because you're a hot mom. Oh and Thank you so much for being the mother that you are for them. I love you babe, and hope you have a wonderful Mother's Day!

HEY! I got a picture on here! That's my girl! She will be mad because she hasn't messed with it (smoothed over her freckles). This is one of my favorite pictures because I LOVE her freckles and you can see them (not even as much as I like), each and every one.

Shelle Edit: I was going to post this quote for today, ""Motherhood brings as much joy as ever, but it still brings boredom, exhaustion, and sorrw too. Nothing else ever will make you as happy or as sad, as proud or as tired, for nothing is quite as hard as helping a person develop his own individuality especially while you struggle to keep your own."--Marguerite Kelly and Elia Parsons

But I think my husband deserves his time to talk about me. Babe you suck for posting that picture :) Happy Mother's Day to all my female readers and friends. I seriously love you guys--it's a cool thing this BLOGGING stuff. It's because of your writings that I realize that I'm normal, as a woman, and as a mother. Thank you.

Love,

I'd like to do a poll out of ALL the bloggers in the world---how many husbands out there snatched their wives blog to post something so nice about them as you did for Shelle. BEST GIFT EVER.
I am sure you'll "get a little" for it (I'm forward like that)
seriously, it was lovely
I too adore those freckles --I always wanted freckles.
and those dimples
I only have dimples in my butt --not as cute
way to go hubby!!!!!!!!!!
