So I know I have done a million blog posts before about how great T is and how she has such a hard job and she does so much and how does she do it all and blah blah blah.
But today I can tell you that after doing what she does for an entire day..shit, she really does an amazing job.
As I was leaving for work she was sleeping and I told her to call me if she needed me to come home. Well 40 minutes later she called me and told me to come home. So I turned around and headed for home. When I walked in the door, there was my honey sleeping on the couch with 4 C's telling me Mommy was sick and throwing up.
First was breakfast. Got the kids fed and that was easy. Fed, washed faces, brushed teeth and then it was on to the next thing.
Homeschool. So C1 and C2 knew what they needed to do. They got to the table and opened up computers and got folders out and we started schooling. They knew what to do and all I kept saying was "Does Mommy do this? and Does Mommy do that?" So we did our work and they did it all rather easy and I thought it went good. I now think that I maybe ready to homeschool the kids all the way through high school.
After school was done, we all got dressed and we were going to head to the park for the kids to play since it was so nice out. So I got the kids dressed and packed some stuff up for lunch. Had to make a few stops on the way but we made it to the park and T's Mom met us there to see the kids and have lunch with us. The kids had fun playing and after a few hours we headed home.
So we got to the house and T was still laying down, I put the sleeping C4 on the bed and I decided to let the kids watch Nanny McPhee. I got them snack and they sat and watched the movie. They enjoyed it and I started to get dinner ready. I'm looking at the clock and thinking SHIT, is this day gonna ever end? Kids were playing and dinner was being cooked. (Chicken and Pasta)
After dinner I had to run C2 up to the school for soccer pictures. Packed up the kids and took them up to the school for a fast hour of standing and team pictures and then it was off to go get T some food that she was craving. Got home and fed her and the kids again and sat down. After sitting down for a bit, I got snack for the kids and kept wondering when the day was going to be over. I usually don't get home till 9pm and it was not even 9 yet and I was so damn tired.
Well I got the kids to bed and I got T back in bed and she told me something I she didn't have to but it made me feel so good....
She said "You did a good job today"
That made my day. I looked at her and said "You are allowed to get sick once a year, and this was it"
So I got to live a day in the life of her from start to finish. And damn what a long day it was.
So after all these years of talking about how awesome she is and how hard she works and how hard it must be... I finally found out on Monday that I was right all along.
*So update...found out that I did the homeschooling ALL wrong. That is probably why it went so smooth.* And I could never do it all the way until college, Im not that smart.
Kiss the Baby
