A Tribute to Grant on Father's Day!

I usually don't like to brag but being that it's Father's day and my husband is half way around the world taking care of our 1 1/2 year old baby boy, I feel like now is the best time to do so.  Let me start by saying that I am married to the BEST husband ever, he is so amazing!  I had not anticipated how bad I would miss him and how hard being apart from him would affect me.  Luckily my mom is out of school for summer and she has been hanging out with me alot.  I would be so lost without Grant...I guess you could say I'm an addict because I am definately co-dependent upon him.
Funny story:  tonight I went out to take the trash cans to the curb and my mom was helping me.  She asked me what side of the driveway that Grant puts them on and I was totally stumped, Grant always takes the trash out and I don't even have to ask him.  Luckily my mom saw our neighbor across that street, sitting in a lawn chair in his garage, watching us try and decide what side to put the trash cans on.  So what do you think we did next...of course, we asked the neighbor what side Grant puts our trash cans on and without thinking twice he pointed to the appropriate side.  I'm sure he thinks I am a complete doofus now. 
I did get to skype Grant today for a couple of minutes and he said they are doing pretty well but Denver is teething.  I guess he will only let Grant hold him, which is kind of a good thing.  I could tell Grant was exhausted and a little stressed.  He also said he hasn't been getting much sleep so please pray that maybe he can get some good rest.   Their embassy date is tomorrow at 9am, so hopefully everything will go well with that.  Only 4 more days until they head back our way.
I also want to thank my Uncle Reggie and tell him Happy Father's day!  He is so selfless and gracious to volunteer to go on this adventure with Grant.  I am so thankful to call him my uncle. 
Happy Father's Day to the "love of my life" and my sweet uncle!!!
God Bless you all!!! 


  1. If he was truly amazing he would have had someone take care of the trash while he was gone! Obviously I think my son is really a good husband and I can't wait to see him as a Dad. This will be an exhausting week for him but I'm glad he and Denver are bonding.....take care of yourself and hopefully the week will fly by. Love, Joy

  2. What a sweet blog entry! I knew you had it in you! See, you become a mom and you get emotional. :) Soon, you'll be crying at commercials like me. :) I know the wait was long, but the timing turned out perfectly. Grant got to spend Father's day with Denver and you'll get him for your birthday. I am beyond excited and happy for you guys. Denver is extremely lucky to end up with such kind, caring, loving, crazy, funny parents. The three of you are going to have so much fun. Love you guys!
