Maybe the carbon monoxide scare and close call with fire made him realize he didn’t want to lose you. 😉

Congrats, Bee! It’s great that you’re taking so many steps towards a more healthy life, and wonderful that you’ve found a guy who is there to encourage you. He sounds like a great man! 

The child and family worker in me makes me want to recommend child development and parenting books to you. Knowledge is power, especially when you are choosing to consciously parent different than you were parented. It’s natural to parent like our parents did, since that’s all we know, so make sure you’re also open to learning the research-based strategies for raising happy, well-adjusted, emotionally stable children. There is a lot of research on raising kids who can handle stress, and it’s really not hard to do!

I wish you the best in therapy, your marriage, parenting, and house-hunting!

ispeakingifs :  Good for you for taking the time you need to sort through things. Getting married is such a huge life change that you really do need to be prepared for it before taking that plunge. Physical wellness is also super important, but don’t put so much pressure on doing it all at once- fitness is a lifetime journey and you always have to adjust along the way. I’m really glad it’s in the front of your mind though. *hugs*

ispeakingifs :  It sounds like your priorities are in such a good place. And what a spin on the waiting we see here on these boards- HE is the one waiting! That is a good position to be in, bee. I am so happy for you and would love to see future updates on your progress. This is your year 🙂
