Even though I would rather my husband were not unemployed right now, there is a definite upside. Mornings are no longer a crazy, stressful mad-dash to the door just to get the girls to daycare on time.
At lunch-time, weather permitting, I can spend an hour with my 3 most favorite people at the park.
And when I get home I am greeting by cheerful squeal of "Mommy!!!" through the open living room window.
Then, instead of rushing around trying to get dinner on the table, the house picked up, baths and bedtime in, we have time to do a little bit of this:
some of this:
and just enjoying the great weather, the green grass and some quality time together.
Sort of makes me think about staying home once Nate goes back to work. . .
