Tuesdays in Twinland: Without Him, There'd Be No Them

Today I want to take a minute to talk about Mr. Armstrong. Without him, there would be no Tuesdays in Twinland because I wouldn't have our adorable sons.

Yesterday, Mr. Armstrong and I celebrated five years of wedded bliss. Five years ago, I never would've imagined what my life is today. I feel so blessed to be Mr. Armstrong's wife, and to be a mother to our sons.

So here's a shout out to my amazing husband, the father of my twins. He is such a fantastic daddy. People ask me all the time how I do twins. It's definitely a team effort. Here are just some of the ways my husband is awesome.

Mr. Armstrong took care of me while I was baking the babies. He did all the cleaning, 95% of the cooking, and the majority of the shopping while I mostly lay sick on the couch, unable to do anything.

When the twins were babies, he frequently got up in the middle of the night to help me with nighttime feedings, even though I was nursing and there wasn't a ton he could do to help. He even would feed the twins bottles and let me sleep when I was especially exhausted.

Mr. Armstrong gives me a break when he gets home from work and takes over the care of the twins lots of days.

He watches them at nights so I can attend critique groups.

He lets me go in the other room to accomplish writerly stuff while he plays with the twins.

He is awesome. My husband is a keeper! I love him so much.

Five incredible years. I can't wait to see where we are five years from now.
