Ladies – I know a lot of you can relate to what I’ve been going through lately. A lack of energy, irritability and a never-ending to-do list can really cause us moms to be too tired after our kids bedtimes, that we basically fall asleep as soon as our heads hit the pillow. Even worse, we can become distant with our significant others, which takes a large toll on our already strained relationships. That being said, instead of giving my husband a traditional Valentine’s Day card this year, I gave him an apology letter right before bed, with sincere, raw wording that no Hallmark card could ever provide.
I know sometimes I can be irritating and come across as frustrated and distant, but I want you to know that tonight, as I lay beside you, that it is me, Melissa. Tonight, I’m no one else, but the person you married. I am the happy, excited, somewhat quirky woman who married you five years ago.
