It's Good To Be Us

As many of you know - children change a marriage. The relationship I had with my husband 5 years ago (before 3 babies) is SO different than the relationship we share now. But now is good. Very good, actually. I love being a family. I love being a Mom. And I love seeing him be a Dad. He is an amazing Dad. I never knew I could love this man so much as the day I first saw him with our child in his arms.

But still - while now is good, it IS different than before. There is less time for the silly things we used to do together. Less time for just the two of us. What I find amazing however, is that with all this change - we are still the best of friends. He is the one I need when I have a bad day. He is the one that can always bring a smile to my face. He is the one, that no matter how tired I am, I still want to sit and talk to. He is the one that makes me feel important. He is the one that makes this crazy adventure of family and parenting worth it... makes it FUN. I couldn't do it with anyone else. He is the one who keeps me on my toes - makes me want to grow. He is the one - period. The One.

So, Matthew, my lover, "It's Good To Be Us!"


Well baby, there ain't no maybe about it
I ain't made of money
So I know that you ain't hangin round for that
If it grew on trees
The branches on mine wouldn't have no leaves
On a shoe-string, saving every dime we made
No Cadillac cruising, no boat on a lake
Out in no-man's-land on an old two-lane
Yeah but we like it that way
It's good to be us, good to be breathing
Day after night after day, this feeling
Feels the way it should
If this is as good as it gets, then good
It's good to be us
Aw, give me this air and give me this land
When I lay down at night girl, give me your hand
I can take any hurt this world has to give
As long as I got you, as long as I live
I'll make your life as sweet as I can
I'll move every mountain to be that man
That gives you space and a place to land
You wake up smiling, knowing that
It's good to be us, good to be breathing
Day after night after day, this feeling
Feels the way it should
If this is as good as it gets, then good
It's better than best, yeah we got it made
In the shade, in the sun, in love this way - yeah
We got lucky baby, we've been blessed
Couldn't ask for more, wouldn't settle for less
It's good to be us, yeah, it's good to be us
It's good to be us, good to be breathing
Day after night after day, this feeling
Feels the way it should
If this is as good as it gets, then good
It's better than best, yeah we got it made
In the shade, in the sun, in love this way - yeah
We got lucky baby, we've been blessed
Couldn't ask for more, wouldn't settle for less
It's good to be us, yeah, it's good to be us
Baby, it's good to be us
So good to be us

I LOVE this post, and these are my favorite lines:
I ain't made of money
