This morning you seemed worn down. I asked you what was wrong and you told me (in so many words) that you “feel like you’re doing a lot of things, but none of them well.” I wanted you to know that I couldn’t disagree more.
You are the rock of our family and are what keeps our little train chugging happily along. I know sometimes it’s hard to realize what you’re bringing to the table when you’re the one living it, so I wanted to help by telling you a few things I think you do remarkably well.

I gained 36 lbs during my pregnancy with Lila. The average is 25 lbs, so I definitely exceeded that. I wasn’t too worried about it at the time because it appeared the weight was mainly in my belly and chest, so I figured once I gave birth, I’d lose it all easily.
Once she made her arrival – just a tiny 6 lbs 9 oz – I lost 15 lbs immediately. I naively thought “oh great, I’ll be back to my normal clothes soon.” Well after that initial 15 lb loss, I didn’t lose any more weight for five months. Not a lb!

Recently a single friend of mine updated me on her love life. She told me that she met a guy she liked a lot but he was “only 25″ so she thought he wasn’t worth pursuing. She’s 29 and looking for a serious relationship.
I urged her to not base her judge the guy just on his age alone. Point in case…
Prior to meeting Luke, I dated a guy who was around 30. You’d think being older he’d be more serious. Wrong! He was all about playing games and stringing me along.
Then came Luke who was 25 at the time and infinitely more mature and committed than any other older guy I’d dated.
