I feel like this post is long overdue considering how much Kurt does for Nate and I. Last week I mentioned that Kurt was working nights for some overtime but what I didn’t mention was that he was also up early in the day for jury selection (yuck!) as well as having to still work his normal day shift for two days. So he basically was working until 1 or 2 am, coming home, sleeping for a few hours then getting back up to go back into work around 6 am. His job isn’t easy either. He’s a fire alarm tech so it requires him to actually be awake and able to perform his job 100%. I could see how wiped out he was by Friday but he still agreed to go into work again for overtime today. Yes, he’s making extra money but he’s not making this money to go out and spend it on just anything. He’s working so hard to make some extra cash so that my bank accounts don’t become even more depleted. Being off on maternity leave has taken a massive hit to my bank accounts. Every two weeks I’m basically bringing in half the amount (if not less) that I normally would be if I was working. Don’t get me wrong, I’d gladly give up the extra money because it’s allowed me to stay home with Nate longer but it sure does give me a greater appreciation for those single parents or one income families because some days I’m surprised we’ve held on as long as we have.
Kurt is a fantastic dad and great husband. He’s always making sure that Nate and I are taken care of first and he’d do anything for us. I’m so thankful to have him as our supporter and I’m even more grateful that he’s never once complained about me taking the entire year off to be with Nate while he works extra hard to keep us afloat. I might not tell him as often as I should that I’m his biggest fan or that I love him but I hope deep down he knows how truly wonderful I think he is!
Kurt, you are definitely a rock star and thank you so much for understanding how much Nate and I needed this entire year off together. You’ve done so much for us and we are so lucky to have you! We love you unconditionally!! Love you always!! xoxo
