You know what’s weird? Having a daughter that’s 12 and a son that’s 9. Because that means I’ve been a mom for that long, and it doesn’t even feel like it.

You know what’s weirder? Celebrating a 15 year anniversary! Because that means I’ve been married that long, and it doesn’t even feel like it!

So what do you get a guy who you’ve been with just about every day for the last 15 years? I’ll share!

*A clean house! I had some cleaners come in and deep clean the house. 15 years and 3 kids means that while parts of the house are clean, it’s not clean all at the same time. For a guy who loves order and cleanliness, this was the best gift I could give. Romantic, non?!

*Juicy steaks! Costco has the best ribeyes around town. I even started up the grill and cooked ’em! We ate charbroiled steak, emphasis on the ‘CHAR’. Yeah, I should have let him grill.

And…that’s it. I didn’t put out, because it’s always good to keep ’em guessing after 15 years, and I never liked being thought of as a ‘sure thing’. Of course, after getting married I became the ‘only thing’. But then I did put out because I wouldn’t want to be a tease, either.

Every year, hubby and I just about run out of steam by the time our anniversary rolls around. Having two kids birthdays the same week as our anniversary really takes a toll, but isn’t that a perfect analogy for kids and marriage anyway? *snort* In any case, we promise each other that the NEXT year we’ll really blow it out and party like it’s 1989. And one of these years, we really will. A trip to Mexico? Europe? The Moon? Who knows!

The anticipation is what’ll keep year 16 fresh and exciting.

  2. Happy Anniversary!!! My hubby and I just celebrated our 12th last Sunday. I know what you mean about time flying by and not feeling like it has been that long; my middle child will be 8 in two days and I can hardly believe it!!!
    Congrats again on 15 years!!!

  3. Oh lady… my son turns 6 next month and my daughter turns 9 the month after… the thing is, I still think of her as 6!! I tell people she is 6!! I said to her the other day… “That’s ok honey, you will be 7 soon… no, 8…. 9 !!!!!” She’s a bit sick of me about it all and I think she’s wishes I’d get a handle on it. I just wish she’d QUIT growing up on me. Stop it stop it stop it. I have a theory that kids age faster than we do, sort of like dogs. Sure, she may be nearly NINE years old now, but it’s only been 3 years in adult years, since she was born. Right? RIGHT!?!!?!?
