It takes two!

Today is my husband's birthday. Scott is six months older than I am so I always give him a hard time about being old! I love you honey - I don't mind the grey hair! : ) I am so grateful to have Scott as my partner in parenting. When our first son was born I read the parenting books and relayed the information to him and he did what I asked him to. After our twins were born, he had to take a more active role in parenting out of sheer necessity. Several years ago we took an 18 week parenting class and then last year taught the class together. I can't tell you how much help that was. Finally, we were partners in parenting. We were in agreement on discipline and we knew where we were heading. We started really showing an united front to our children. It has made a huge difference in our lives and I so appreciate Scott being willing to step-up and be the husband and Dad God designed him to be.

Have you and your husband ever attended a parenting class together? If you haven't, I would encourage you to do so immediately if not sooner!

Oh and Happy Birthday Scott! I love you!
