All I Want to Hear Is...

Dear husband,

I'm sorry that I snapped at you
I'm sorry that some days I'm frazzled
I'm sorry that I'm not the cheerful, fun loving woman I used to be
But I've changed, and I need you

All I want to hear is "thank you"
Thank you for safely carrying my child in your body
Thank you for sacrificing your smooth, flat belly
Thank you for throwing up every day for three and a half months
Thank you for giving up activities you love
Thank for you passing on food and drink you enjoy

All I want to hear is "I'm proud of you"
I'm proud of you for pushing your body to it's limit
I'm proud of you for withstanding the excruciating pain of labour
I'm proud of you for giving birth to our child
I'm proud of you for doing everything to breastfeed our child
I'm proud of you for soldiering on 2 hours sleep and recovering from childbirth

All I want to hear is "I appreciate it"
I appreciate it when you get up in the night to soothe our child
I appreciate it when you think and plan ahead
I appreciate it when you remember things for me when you have so much on your plate
I appreciate it when the food in the house never runs out
I appreciate it when you make sure everything is done

All I want to hear is "You're amazing"
You're amazing for getting up and showing up every day for our child
You're amazing for working your butt off in a mentally demanding job
You're amazing for juggling the demands of motherhood and work
You're amazing for continually doing it all on your own for days at a time
You're amazing for constantly trying your hardest to control your frustration

All I want to hear is "I'm here for you"
I'm here for you when you're so frustrated you could scream
I'm here for you when you say you need a break
I'm here for you when you feel sad about how quickly our baby is growing up
I'm here for you when you're unsure of this whole parenting thing
I'm here for you when you're feeling overwhelmed

All I want to hear is "You're a great mum"
You're a great mum when you yell
You're a great mum when you cry
You're a great mum when you get frustrated with me
You're a great mum when you're exhausted
You're a great mum
