Im at home...
Before I could even finish those two words, I heard our son, Yohei, laughing and singing gibberish along with the song playing on the television. That little goofball always knows how to brighten up my day. With a smirk on my face, I quietly closed the door and took off my shoes.
A Chaotic Living Room
As soon as I entered the living room, there it was - chaos in its purest form. Our 11-month-old daughter was having a blast playing with anything she could get her tiny hands on. Toys scattered all over the floor like landmines waiting for me to step on them. But amidst this mess stood you, passed out on the couch from exhaustion.
The Sacrifices We Make
Seeing you like that hit me right in the gut – not because of frustration or anger but because of love and admiration for everything you do for our family every single day. You work tirelessly to provide for us while also taking care of these two rambunctious bundles of joy we call our children. But in moments like this when fatigue takes over your body and forces you into an involuntary slumber, it reminds me just how much sacrifice goes into being a parent.
Late Nights & Sleepless Mornings
Late nights spent pacing back and forth trying to soothe Yohei's tears or lulling Satsuki back to sleep after one too many diaper changes have become routine occurrences. And let's not forget those early mornings where time seems irrelevant as we stumble around half-awake doing whatever necessary so that everyone gets fed before starting their day. It's exhausting; there’s no denying that. But deep down inside every fiber of my being tells me it’s worth it.
The Joy They Bring
When Yohei looks up at me with his innocent eyes filled with wonderment or when Satsuki wraps her tiny hands around my finger, I feel an indescribable joy that makes every sleepless night and chaotic day fade away. Their laughter, their smiles, and the pure love they radiate make it all worth it. It's like a drug – addictive yet fulfilling at the same time.
A Reminder of Strength
Seeing you passed out on the couch is a reminder of your strength as well. The fact that you can push yourself to such limits for our family astounds me. You are a superhero in disguise - juggling work, parenting duties, and everything else life throws at us without ever complaining or giving up. And even though exhaustion may take its toll from time to time, know that your efforts do not go unnoticed or unappreciated.
Moments That Melt My Heart
There are moments when I catch glimpses of our children displaying traits reminiscent of both you and me. Yohei’s fiery determination mirrors my own stubbornness while Satsuki's warm-hearted nature reflects your immense capacity for compassion. These moments melt my heart because they serve as a constant reminder of how lucky we are to have created this beautiful little family together.
Life isn’t always rainbows and sunshine; sometimes it pours down buckets with thunderstorms brewing overhead. But through these storms comes growth – individually and as a unit. We learn from each other’s mistakes; we forgive one another for shortcomings because perfection doesn't exist in parenthood or relationships either.
Appreciating Each Other
So here's what I want to say: thank you. Thank you for being by my side through thick and thin - supporting me when I stumble just like I support you when exhaustion takes over your body. Thank you for loving our children fiercely even on days where nothing seems to go right. Thank you for reminding me why we embarked on this crazy journey called parenthood in the first place – because despite all the chaos, there is an overwhelming abundance of love that fills our hearts.
The Exhaustion is Worth It
In this diary entry or personal blog post – call it what you will - I want to express my unwavering love and gratitude for everything we have as a family. Yes, the exhaustion can be relentless at times, but when I look at Yohei's innocent smile and Satsuki's tiny hands reaching out for mine, I am reminded of why every sacrifice we make is worth it. So here’s to us – imperfect yet fiercely loving. Here’s to embracing the chaos and finding beauty in moments like these. And most importantly, here’s to our unbreakable bond as a family.
Even though life may throw obstacles our way and fatigue may cloud our judgment from time to time, know that together we are unstoppable. I wouldn’t trade this chaotic mess for anything else in the world because being your husband and watching you navigate through parenthood with grace makes me fall deeper in love with you every single day.
This journey isn't always easy; sometimes it feels like walking on hot coals barefooted. But rest assured knowing that no matter how challenging things get or how exhausted we become along the way, our love will always prevail.
Because my dear husband,
The exhaustion is absolutely worth it when it comes to loving our extraordinary little family.
