“Daddy Please don’t be mad at me.” I said as I lay on top of him. “Why would I be mad at you?” “Because I just need to cry” and with that I was in tears. He held me. I cried and told him I loved him and that he made me very happy. Tears aside I wanted that known. Those tears didn’t even last five minutes and I felt so much better afterward.
I had been on edge all weekend. I had read something that had me feeling down and he hadn’t felt good most of the weekend. I spent most of the two days in wedding planning mode with the kid and even when Daddy and I had time to play it was good but just off. Just that short cry relieved a lot of tension. Most importantly I thought to tell him first that I just needed to cry. I wanted him to know it was nothing he had done.
This week was particularly stressful for him and I really feed off his mood. If Daddy is down or distant I sink too. A brief misunderstanding earlier this week was resolved very quickly and tonight’s communication was handled well. Overall I am so proud of how we are coping.
