When My Husband Looks at Our Daughter
There is a lengthy story behind our seperate thoughts. His involves an ex-girlfriend and being a â€śfatherâ€ť to her little girl. Mine involves not expecting to get pregnant again and finding out that weâ€™d have a girl. His story ended in heartbreak, my story continues with us being extermely blessed. Our story together may not be an unusual one but it is special beyond our dreams.
When I met my husband, it was lust at first sight. Then it was crazy, fast love. Then it was moving in, engagement, marriage and our son in a whirlwind. It seemed so fast.
The one thing I wanted to give him was a girl. When we got pregnant the first time, we agreed that we werenâ€™t going to find out. Secretly, I hoped it was the girl he wanted because when he said goodbye to the exâ€™s little girl, it killed him inside. He was just meant to be a father. I knew he would be an amazing dad.
Now, I see him look at her playing or when she sleeps. Every once in a while, he embraces me and kisses me and says thank you very softly.
I know exactly what he means.
