Today is our wedding anniversary. Eight years ago we said I do and promised to stand by one another… even in sickness and in health.
As you read a few weeks back I was very sick last year while being pregnant with Number One and ended up 29 days in hospital. It was a tough time for all our family and friends, especially my husband, who stood by my side. Luckily he was surrounded by supporting family and friends. Continue reading In sickness and in health
Up to now it was easy to talk about my son in blog posts. First he was my baby and then my son, because he was only one. Now that his little brother is born I have to think of something else to call them. I don’t want to call them by their real names for privacy reasons.

I want to tell you a story.
Unlike other fairytales there isn’t a princess, knight, dragon, witch or magic… but there is a boy and a girl, life’s troubles and true Love.

I have read much books and watch many different dvd’s on the difference between men and women… mom vs dad. One of my favorites is “Laugh your way to a better marriage” by Mark Gungor. The series starts with “A tale of two brains”, and it is so funny. A book I enjoyed a lot is “Men are like waffles women are like spaghetti”, by Bill and Pam Farrel.
I definitely don’t know everything about my husband, but I thought I understood his thinking pattern after pre-marriage counselling, personality tests and all this dvd’s and books. If you read “My husband, the entertainer” you might understand a bit about the personality gap between us.
