We are just a family of five...three boys, a mom, a dad, a hamster, and dog. Welcome to our crazy world. Our adventures will make you laugh, cry, and pee in your pants...

Hi Kathy!

   I thought I'd find you here.  We're both putting in such crazy hours, that the only way I know where you've been is to look at the receipts...

   You are really doing a great job with the boys.  They are all such little men already!  You are so consistent with your attentiveness to their needs and the loving atmosphere around here that they don't even realize that Supermom is in their own house!  I miss you guys.

   And what a great group of friends you have!  Look how often you provide each other with love and support.  Even from so far apart, you and they are full of optimism and encouragement.  What wonderful people.  Let's have them all over for dinner on Saturday.  We'll order pizza.  Make sure to tell them they are all invited.  

  Mostly I just wanted to tell you how incredible you are.  You make it easy for me to do my job because I know how hard I have to work to feel justified in being tired at the end of the day.  There is not a family more lucky than ours.   And your hair looks great.
Well, it was nice talking to you.   Let's do this again soon.  And yes, I'll get to that list on the table...

I'll love you forever,

You're so sweet when you wanta be! (I don't care what the others say) Try to get some sleep and fun while the family is gone to NC. If you want, we'll come visit you. :)

ok, I just wrote a pretty lengthy and mushy shpeel to only have it all deleted when I clicked submit. Urghhhh....It was really good too. Oh well

So the just of it was, it took me a moment to figure out who was writing. But Joe, I always knew you had a soft heart since the time you showed up on our door steps just to see if Kalob was ok when he had his 911 call. It just melted and warmed our hearts.

Ditto on the great job that Kat is doing and truly you all do your parts so effortlessly and it inspires me and I'm sure your other readers as well to be just as humble and loving. Even though we are not an immediate part of your lives as before your family is always top of mind and you are greatly missed (even though were only 7mi alway)
Joe, I know your busy...I truly do but you'll have to get a minute to call Tim to let him tell you what I originally wrote. You know you guys have the same humor (you can only imagine what I wrote right)

Oh Joe. That was the sweetest thing I've ever read. You are such an amazing family, and your love for one another is inspiring.

Great, now I'm all teared up. :) Kathy, you've got a good hubby there! And Joe is right, you are the best supermom out there.


Grandma Susie said...

Hey there, how are you?
You guys are doing great! I love your humor Joe. . . and the way you deal with this crazy, busy time in your life.
Try to find a weekend in the near future (when the family gets back) that you & Kathy can plan a get-a-way, some time alone, and let me come stay with the boys for you.
Can't wait to see a picture of that new motorcycle. :)

Krista said...

that is pretty darn sweet...what a great way to start my day! You all are a great family...and I admire your dedication to each other and to your boys.

And...if I win the lottery this week..I'm hopping a plane for the pizza party!

Have a great week...both of you!

So sweet-what a wonderful family!! Kathy-you are absolutely a supermom!!

I'll be there for the pizza party (I wish I could be there!!)

Melanie & Colin (I guess Tim too!!)

Rachel said...

Nicest thing I've seen in a long time. What a lucky lady you are to have a man like Joe!


Grandma Judy said...

Oh Joe,
Have you started missing her already?

jmckeel said...

What better way to show appreciation than to go PUBLIC! Better yet NATIONAL! I'm sure that made her day; tell her your feelings more often - I'm sure she needs to hear them. Take care, Abby
P.S. Where is Kathy? I'm missing the update of Isaac?! What store is having the sale today? :)

Kelly said...

Ahhh! So very sweet. I think it's nice to hear that once in a while. Even us out here in blog land can tell she is certainly supermom in regular mom clothes. =) You've got one very special wife!

You're just buttering her up for that motorcycle was my first thought! =)

Vanessa said...

Awwww....Joe you are SO sweet! I'm all teared up from reading your letter. I'm sure you started her day out with a smile!

By the way, I would LOVE to come for dinner. LOL! Your only a few hours away we'll have to get together some day.

Hope you all have a wonderful day!

What a nice thing for a hubby to do! I am going to make my husband read this entry!

I will be there on Saturday night...could you please send a plane ticket too??


Vaeh's Blog said...

I'll take one of those plane tickets!

Okay Kathy, you need to clone your husband & you could make millions! What a sweet thing to do!

Hope you guys can actually get together in the physical realm vs. just in blogger-land!

Samantha said...

Joe, what a sweet thing to do for Kathy! It is final, all the other husbands are way nicer than mine ;)

I have tears now, so I have to stop! Joe you are great!

Love to you all!

Love you guys -
