In order to get a better understanding of the person that I am, you must be introduced to “my boys” (aka my husband and son). They keep my life exciting, full of endless surprises, and have helped mold me into the person I am today.
My husband, my Christopher, is a very strong individual who always helps me find my path. Over the years my sweet side has rubbed off on him, and his notorious “asshole” side has rubbed off on me. Therefore, together we have the perfect balance, and we make the perfect team. He is ambitious, hard-working, and he loves his family with his whole heart. And whenever he thinks no one’s looking, he shows his sensitive side.
Did I mention that he helps finance my shopping addiction? Chris doesn’t really understand my love for designer labels, but he accepts it. My favorite words to come out of his mouth (aside from “I love you,” of course!) are “I really like that outfit in that store window– why don’t you go try it on?”
My rambunctious three-year old Branden keeps me on my toes and has taught me the true meaning of unconditional love. Although he has more energy than I know what to do with on most days, he is the most caring and polite child that I have ever met. Watching him learn, explore the world, and speak in full sentences are some of the happiest moments of my life. And he’s the funniest kid– even on days that I’m ready to pull my hair out, he always makes me laugh. Whenever we are together as a family, he refers to my husband and I as “Maddy” (mommy + daddy), and himself always as “baby Branden.”
Together, we create the perfect little family. My family is my world. In my life, my family always comes first, and then everything else. Always. Every moment and every experience (good or bad) that we have gotten through together makes me a stronger and a more well-rounded person.
I’m so lucky to have two boys that adore me! With all this love in my life, what’s a Mamanista to do?
