Eggs is Freakin Awesome! Happy Birthday!
This is my inaugural post, so I apologize in advance because I have no idea what I'm doing!! (I didn't even know how to do a new post...I had to wait for Eggs to leave for a minute and luckily she left herself signed-on ha!)
I have loved Eggs for a long time (if you didn't already know, Eggs is Erica's nickname) but each year that goes by I realize I love her even more and for so many different reasons. She still makes me laugh all the time (although I would laugh a whole lot more if she still had her Chicago-accent) and she's as beautiful as ever (I definitely married way over my pay-grade) but as we have started a family together I realize there are so many other attributes she has that I've grown to love deeply.
I always knew that Eggs would be a great mom, but I guess I didn't realize how great until she WAS a mom. I used to think I was good under pressure...I guess I had never experienced the pressure of changing a diaper and having both pee and poo fired at you at the same time. I crumbled...luckily Eggs was there to save the day. I didn't really know how to handle the first time Kash threw up in the middle of the night either...I totally froze and Eggs saves the day again. I didn't really know how to deal with the bumps and scrapes that are inevitable with children, but Eggs always swoops in to kiss ouchies and wipe away tears. I would be train-wreck as a single parent, but Eggs has taught me so much about what being a dad is. Thanks for being my teammate Eggso, I couldn't do it without you!
Not only is Eggs a great mom, but she's also an amazing wife. I'm usually involved in some sort of extracurricular activity: golf, running, softball or basketball. Eggs always makes time to come and support me and cheer me on. I always feel so blessed to have my family there rooting me on...they always make me feel like I'm famous, it's awesome! I usually don't get home from work until 6:30 or 7:00 and she always has dinner ready for me (Eggs is an terrific cook) when I walk in the door. She's had to sacrifice a lot the last few years as we've started a new business but she has never complained and always supports me.
Eggs always tells me I'm not good at vocalizing my emotions/feelings, so here goes nothing! I love ya Eggs, thanks for putting up with me and thanks for being the best wife/mother a guy could ask for. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!
