I was reading in A Mother's Book of Secrets by Linda Eyre and Shawni Eyre Pothier and I came across this paragraph that I just loved because I can totally relate (except for the husband named Dave - just substitute Eric in his place).
"I love being a mother with all my heart-commotion and all. I love to kiss those kids' cheeks and snuggle up to read bedtime stories together. But as much as I adore those kids, Dave is my "number one". My sweetheart. My lover. My best friend. And when I'm a shriveled up little old lady, I want to remember this: he was my first priority. He's the one who lights up my heart with something as little as giving me a wink across the dinner table commotion. He's the one I'd rather be with than anyone else in the world."
Eric, thanks for being my number one! I love being with you...especially when we are in the middle of the commotion together and we just look at each other and smile :)
