Fidelia's Friday - Wonderful husband of mine!

Where do I begin? Today's post is all about my dearest husband. I would like to make a small contribution for my lovely husband which he totally deserves.

I was inspired to write about Duncan when he cycled to the National Registration Department yesterday to get Leah's MyKid (Malaysian Children Identity Card). I am so blessed to have such a wonderful husband who is willing to cycle for 30 minutes rather than having me drive there and leave Leah at home. Leah needs me because I am fully breastfeeding her and I don't like to pump my milk and store it in a feeding bottle because she doesn't like it. 

When I gave birth to Lauren and Leah, he would cycle to the hospital to see me. He didn't want to trouble anyone to take him there. Every time he arrived at the maternity ward, there would always be a big smile on his face despite all the tiredness and sweat. Cycling from our apartment to the hospital takes about 20 minutes. To cycle under the hot and humid weather back and fro? Yes, it is very hard work! Kudos to him! Not many people can do that.

Duncan will also cycle to the post office to pay our bills. It saves time to find a parking space if we drive there. He can just lock his bicycle in front of the post office which is very convenient. 

Another thing that Duncan always does is food shopping. With two young children, that can be very difficult. Duncan always volunteers to do it himself. He will walk all the way to the supermarket with his back-pack and come home carrying all the food. He prefers me to stay with the children at the comfort of our home. How sweet and thoughtful of him.

There are so many things that he has done that I could mention here but the most important thing that I want everyone to know is that he is a husband and a father who is willing to sacrifice himself so me and the children  can have a better life.

Lauren wouldn't want any other daddy than Duncan. She told me herself. She loves her daddy so much and she can't be apart from him for a long time. She would ask "Where's daddy? Why is he so long? I miss him!" Most of the time, he'll only be gone for 3 hours. Try to imagine when her daddy goes to Singapore. Yes, I have to answer her all the time!

Leah is always excited when her daddy comes to talk and play with her. Duncan knows how to make Leah smile and laugh. One of the reasons I fell in love with Duncan is he is a very funny guy. I love it! 

I am the luckiest woman alive to be married to him. I wouldn't want anyone else. We've been married for more than 5 years and I am still so much in love with him. I am looking forward for many years to come with him. 

How do you find your married life? Do you love it or you wish you never got married? Or you prefer to stay single? I love mine. I love being married and a guy named Duncan David Horne makes it a wonderful experience.
