When I first laid eyes on Husband, I have to admit that I didn't really notice him. I was sort of seeing someone else at the time so I wasn't thinking of dating anyone else. It wasn't until a month or two, after I stopped seeing the guy that Husband and I got to chatting properly. He was really flirty and cheeky and that's what sparked that attraction.
Over the next few weeks, Husband and I chatted more and got to know each other. It was the day after my 18th birthday that we shared our first kiss. I had just had my tongue pierced and it had started to swell but we still managed! That was October and I think I knew I was in love with him by January 1st after bringing in the New Year together with friends.
Aside from being really flirty and cheeky, Husband has a super caring and protective side. Even in the early days, when I first moved in with him and my Dad and his partner moved away, leaving me pretty much on my own in a place I hadn't grown up in, he put me before anything else and made sure I was settled and happy.
Husband and I got engaged in November of 2005 and we were married in July 2006. At that time, we found out we were pregnant but sadly lost the baby whilst on Honeymoon. Husband was so supportive and again, put my needs before his even though he would have been hurting at that time too.
When Z was born, my love and admiration for Husband grew every day. Seeing him with Z, our son, just filled my heart with so much love. He is an amazing dad to our son. And then his daughter was born and he changed before my eyes. Being a Dad to a son is completely different from being a Dad to a daughter. It's unknown territory for men and they suddenly realise that they have a little girl to protect and it all gets a bit serious. Miss C has him wrapped around her finger!
Husband has got one of the biggest smiles you'll ever see and he is very rarely in a bad mood. If he is then it's because he is tired from working so hard. He would do anything for anyone but he doesn't tolerate people taking the proverbial either out of him, me or any of his family. He's so supportive and encouraging of us all and I know that deep down he just wants us to feel happy, safe and loved.
He is a one in a billion guy!
