Why This Football Wife Loves The 1st Wednesday Of February

Signing Day falls on the first Wednesday of February each year. It's a moment I, as well as many coaches wives in college football, celebrate for an abundance of reasons.

Selfishly, I am not going to lie, it's nice having my husband back. Well....until spring ball that is.....yes coaches work hard year round. It will be nice to have a little time to sneak a few dates in.....that don't involve a football event. Even though I enjoy them......recruiting dinners and team banquets are not quite dates.

It's nice to finally see the rewards from all the hard work involved in recruiting. The time on the road (sometimes weeks at a time), phone calls, tweeting, and all the recruiting weekends finally pay off. Plus we get the benefit of adding more to our football family.....GO Jacks!!!!!πŸ°πŸˆπŸ’™πŸ’› It is always exciting to see who will be the new players we will get to know over the next 4-5 years. Our sons enjoy having all of my husbands players over, and I love serving those boys a home cooked meal when they're far from home. 

Speaking of a home cooked warms my heart when I hear my boys excited that Daddy is home for dinner....something maybe the typical family takes for granted. It's finally time to have a more "normal" family life.

Lastly, I get an extra set of hands around to assist with daily family life. I am keeping it 100% real....after going through an entire football and recruiting season handling everything at home, this mama of four boys has had enough of single high safety parenting.... and is ready for some cover 2! (Ladies...If you don't know what that means, your husband can fill you inπŸ˜‰.) It will be nice to have some help with baths, bedtime, chauffeuring kids to activities, or even just letting me get to that hair appointment without having to call a babysitter.

So ladies.....celebrate that Signing Day is finally here πŸŽ‰πŸ₯‚πŸΎ!! Enjoy time with your husbands.....watching your kids spend quality time with Dad...and get excited about what is in store for that growing football family this fall! 🏈
