Desiree Spinner, the chic mom blogger of La Petite Peach, shared with BURU why her baby daddy is the ultimate role model.
This Father's Day I am really going to shower my amazing husband with some major love! This year we celebrated 10 years of marriage and welcomed our second baby, a sweet little girl to keep our 9-year-old big guy company.
The two of us met in college and were best friends first (which is the best!). So when we started dating it wasn't too long (6 months, ahem) before we were married and ready to start a family of our own. We had our first baby super young, and were inexperienced to say the least, but we learned together and were the ultimate team. This time around with our new baby, we are complete pros– it's amazing to look at our journey together.
Because I was so young when I had my first, I've had some soul-searching time for the perfect career that keeps me intellectually stimulated but also lets me be the best mom I can possibly be. I love to write and travel, which is part of the reason why I started my blog, La Petite Peach, three years ago after living in Europe with our oldest. Since then my hubby has been so supportive and actually was on board to turn our garage into an amazing home office so I can do both. Although I know he misses his manly garage, he does tell me he loves that I am home with the kids and still able to do what I love. That means more to me than anything.
We have had an amazing 10 year journey from becoming parents in our early twenties to adults in our thirties now. He is the most amazing father who juggles hockey games and baseball practice with changing diapers and tucking our babies in at night. What I love most about him is that he is the perfect example to our son and daughter. Our son sees how well we communicate and how sweet he is to me, and I hope he will treat the woman in his life the same. Our daughter, although she is still a baby, will hopefully learn that she is worthy and deserves to be loved the same way as he loves me. My hubby is the ultimate role model and I am forever grateful to have him in my life!
