I fell in love with my husband. It happened at daycare. We weren’t little kids who attended the same one, but rather, kid-at-heart adults who worked at the same one. How many women get to see the future father of their children in action the way I did?!
I noticed how adored he was by all the kids and yes, some moms too, mostly single.
I saw him be a fun and compassionate caregiver to so many little ones, sharing hugs and laughs, and sometimes, just his quiet presence.
I watched him cook a daily feast, plus two snacks, for 30-40 hungry tots, and then wash everyone’s dishes.
I marveled at how often and easily he could mesmerize a large group of wild things as he told stories under a tree.
I melted when he rescued the class pets during a fire drill.
I looked forward to working everyday.
We were good friends. We loved kids.
And a decade later…
We are best friends. We love our four kids. We love each other.
