Today I am thankful for my husband. That’s right dear readers, as much as I pick on him on this blog, I am truly thankful for him every day. He is my best friend, my support, my protector and my provider. I am one lucky lady.

In particular I am thankful that I am able to stay home with my son every day, and a huge reason I am able to do that is because The Captain does everything in his power to allow that to happen.

Yes, I do work, and I do contribute to this family financially, but my main job is taking care of our son. I count my blessings every day because I can’t imagine doing anything else. He sees how important it is for our son to have his mom home with him every day. He doesn’t pressure me to spend more time doing my job, and respects my job as a mom. Not all men would be the same.

I live in a rather materialistic area. It’s a place where if you don’t drive a Mercedes you haven’t “made it”. Well that’s not how I was raised. And I am thankful that The Captain values being financially responsible as much as I do. He works hard all day, then comes home and works some more. He does all this so that we can comfortably raise our son. He does this so that I can spend my days teaching our son everything about life, and he does this so I can fulfill my dream of being a stay at home mom.

As hard as he works he is always present. He comes home to be with us for lunch, and he does most of his personal work after I go to bed. As much as I joke that he is more of an assistant then a co pilot when it comes to raising our son I am always thankful to have him as a partner. Just having him there makes all the difference in my day.

I am thankful for a lot of things….but today I am extra thankful for Captain Awesome
