Words Written By My Husband

Words Written By My Husband

“Words written by my husband:⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Hayley asked me to write something about her postpartum body.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
I figured it’d be easy but then I started thinking- what’s there to write about?⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Sure, things look and feel slightly different-but in the grand scheme of things, nothing changed.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
The reasons I fell in love with her had nothing to do with any of the body parts affected by her postpartum.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
She still has the same beautiful smile, determined mind, banging body, and strong work ethic as the girl I fell for over 15 years ago.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
She still has the same sense of humor.⁣⁣
She still smells great and tastes great too.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Her postpartum body does look and feel slightly different, but why should that be a factor in MY life at all?⁣⁣
⁣⁣
The soft, pillowy skin around her belly held my three best friends for 18 months.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
The marks show the strength it took to carry the weight of two beautiful girls that will be raised by this bad ass mom.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Nothing has changed or altered my love for my wife.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
I get praised for being “a great husband”, but that’s nonsense.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
I’m literally doing the bare minimum by loving my wife for who she is, “imperfections” and all.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Imperfections make the world fun!⁣⁣
⁣⁣
If everything was Barbie doll perfect, wouldn’t we get bored?⁣⁣
How else would we show what life has put us through?⁣⁣
⁣⁣
So whether it’s regrettable tattoos, scars, surgeries, facial hair, or a postpartum tummy, honestly….who gives a shit?⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Be good to each other.⁣⁣
Learn from mistakes- yours and others.⁣⁣
Help those in need and let’s stop dwelling on who looks like what.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
My wife isn’t perfect and that’s what makes me love her.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
That’s why you are all reading this.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
IF she was perfect, not a one of you would be able to relate to her.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
And to the husbands out there that don’t do their fair share of diaper duty, cooking, cleaning and telling your wife how beautiful she is—step up your game bro.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
You’re a team.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
So yeah, I was supposed to write about a belly, but honestly it affects me so little that I rambled about everything else.⁣”
