My Reign is Almost Up
Papa Bear and I have been married for 10 years and dated for 2 year before that. So for 12 years I have reigned supreme as the princess in his life. While I might be the one that makes sure birthday gifts are bought and social plans are made and while we definitely work together to make sure we have groceries and laundry is done there is still a very special role that Papa Bear has always had. He makes sure I have chocolate in case of emergency and if I need french fries to fix a bad or sad day, he always has them in hand and only from McDonalds because fries from anywhere else are subpar to fix bad or sad days. He used to make sure I always had pepsi on hand and now it is lemonade vitamin waters. In short, he is my prince in all ways and things and I am his princess. I mean, he really makes me feel like a princess just about every day. It has been that way for 10 years of marriage and 2 years of dating. But this morning all of that changed. I saw his face when the sonogram tech told us that we are having a baby girl. My reign as supreme princess is up. He is already wrapped around this baby girl's finger. When we were walking to the car, he positioned me in the inside of him closest to the parked cars instead of the road. He has always done this for as long as I can remember but this time he qualified it with "I have to protect my baby girl" and he wasn't talking about me! It warmed my heart and made me smile. And you know what, I am not worried about not being Supreme Princess because now I just get to be Supreme Queen and I can't wait to share my reign with our beautiful baby girl!!!!
