It's been a while since I posted anything so I figured I'd give it a shot. Since I last posted some things have changed. New house, new job, new addition to the family!! My wife and I are now the proud parents of a little girl and essentially the love of our lives. She's had me wrapped around her finger since day 1!!!
Any husband who has been there for the birth of a child with your wife knows the overwhelming feeling of gratitude, respect, love, and triumph towards your wife on that day. Seeing your wife go through the hardships of birth changes your mentality as a husband and new father. You have no choice but to now do anything and everything possible to provide and protect them. The birthing process was an adventure to say the least. Luckily everyone is healthy now but that's for another post another time. Parenthood changes your life in so many ways. People always say to own a pet before a child for responsibility reasons, however there are very few similarities between taking care of both. I'm not going to get into challenges as a parent because every parenting experience is different, all I will say is that it's definitely another full time job, but more enjoyable!!! Sleepless nights, cranky parents, long work days, cranky baby, it all comes with the territory of being a new parent. If there are people out there that feel that having a baby will solve any relationship issues, guess again. Having a baby tests your relationship strength to the core and sometimes further! Knowing that you're committed to more than just owning a house together can be life altering if you're not ready for it. Having a spouse that is in it with you no matter the ups and downs may be the best motivation anyone can ask for!!
Off my soapbox now, just wanted to give an update on life and as always......
I'm Kyle Montgomery, and this has been my two cents!!
