My husband and I met on Match.com! I am 9 years older than him. I married at 35 years old and had my son at 36. I worked hard at my career and didn’t want to marry young. However my parents married young and have been together for 53 years. God bless them! Sometimes when my husband snores I’m ready for divorce, just kidding obviously.
My husband is a police officer for New York City. He works hard. He works late and he works some holidays. It was hard at first but we have adjusted. I work as a Child Protective Services caseworker. Unfortunately I have seen horrible things at my job. But there have been beautiful adoptions stories I have seen as well.
This is a picture from Christmas Day! It’s in my living room with my family. We have a four bedroom house. One of the rooms would be for a special baby if we are lucky. We have an in ground pool with a gate for safety. We have a security system and cameras outside of our house for extra safety! We live on a private road and have great neighbors. We have a big yard for playing and running around and like to take walks down our road. We have a dining room for holiday meals and parties!
I never knew a love like I have for my son before he was born. Sure I love my husband, parents and family but this boy has given me so much to live for and strive for. I make many mistakes as a mom. There are days I cry myself to sleep. But I pick myself up again.
I like time with my friends to eat bad food and have a nice glass of wine. I love to shop ( prob a little too much) I have been trying to meditate to relieve stress and learning to not stress over things that are out of my control. I learned everything from my mom and grandmother. My grandmother passed away when she was in her early 70’s the same age as my mom is now. She was everything to us and still is. I miss her but I know she has been there to get me through all these crappy times! My parents help out a lot with our son. They are a big part of our lives as is my sister. I have a niece and nephew who are twins! They are grown and are 26 years old. I remember the day they were born. I have loved kids sine they were born. I was only 17 when my sister had them. I got all my practice with them! I work full time then pick my son up from after school and take him to Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. We come home and I make dinner (well what I can) and we have time together. My husband gets home around 9pm and says goodnight to our son. Then I usually watch a little tv and fall asleep! Not too exciting of a life!
I am a police officer for NYPD. I work with a four legged partner named Phil. I am on the K-9 unit which has always been a dream of mine. I moved to New York from Massachusetts to be a police officer. I met my wife on match.com as she said and I knew she was the one. She would say differently about me but I knew from day one. It took awhile for me to grow on her but I did. I asked her to marry me a year later. Then we had Mason! He gives us a run for our money. He’s stubborn like his Mama but he shows us a love like no other. We love trips to Atlantic City and Cape Cod. We love the beach and hanging by our pool. Our weekends we take our son ice skating or to the movies. I love to cook for my family. I show love through food! My wife takes on a lot of responsibility since I get home late at night. She is the strongest woman I have ever met. I am so proud of her and all she does for our family.
