A Day Off


Jeff had yesterday off work and boy was I thankful because that meant I had a chance to accomplish things like laundry and vacuuming with TWO of my hands, instead of just one.  Patrick had some good one-on-one time with his dad. And we bought take-out for lunch.  And he held Janey while I ate.  And we both finished a couple of things on our to-do lists.  I said, "Can you imagine if you had a day off once a week, how great that would be?"  And he said, "I would drive you crazy!"  Which may or may not be true, but yesterday it was just what I needed.

  4. Glad you had a day off from your children. Husbands are a blessing especially if they help you with kids and around the house. That's heaven sent.

  6. I am not the right person to comment on this since my husband has been 'working' from home for 6 months straight.

    But I'm so glad that day off worked out well for you!!! :) You deserve the help.

  7. So glad his day off was a good day for both of you! The photo of him holding Janey is so sweet--one of those everyday pictures you'll be so glad you have!

  8. This reminds me of something I read the other day, which said "TGIF! Oh wait, I'm a mom." To which I thought, "yes, but on Saturday I have DADDY around!!" Bliss!

  9. I can so relate to this! My hip hasn't hurt in 5 years, and today I noticed it again. I realized I have a baby on my hip again all day :)) Oh but I love him so much it's worth all the aches in the world:)) But when Daddy's home it's definitely a nice little break.
