WND Top Ten - My Wife

What Now?

For the next top ten Whatnowdad post I picked this one from February 23 because it describes, in a very simple and cute way, the relationship I have with my best friend and soul mate. As I have said on a few occasions I could dedicate a whole blog to my wife and what she means to me. This post is just one example why I am entirely devoted to this woman.

There are a few certainties I have in my life and one of them is that I married the perfect woman for me. We are so compatible it is scary. One of the ways I know this is that we have the same sense of humor, which is probably only funny to us. Last night we were catching up on some of our shows on DVR and my wife was enjoying a chocolate peppermint patty. She then looked at me to say something very important and I turn to her and see her mouth surrounded by a thin, chocolate ring. This is funny to me on so many levels, but mostly because our 5 year old daughter has this look constantly. In fact, I swear she sometimes gets this look without even eating chocolate...I don't know how but it seems I am always cleaning off her face. So to see my wife, a 38 year old woman, with the same look made me laugh instantly. And when I pointed it out to her she too started laughing. We both laughed so hard we were crying. It was the second time last night we did that, but I probably shouldn't talk about what made us laugh the first time. She is my soul mate, my best friend and the other half of my comic duo. I am more than certain she was the one I was supposed to meet and I love her more than she will ever know.



  1. WOW WND, this moves you up my HOT Dad list!!! Very sweet post.

  2. What a wonderfully, sweet post. Laughter is the greatest gift. It seems the two of you share that gift regularly. I'm glad that you and your wife found each other and find so much to laugh about.
