Fun With Daddy

Our babysitter is out of town until Friday. So Hubby took a vacation day today and spent it with the little boyz (Eldest is now in FULL-DAY kindergarten, thankfully!) Not only did he vacuum, clean out the fireplace and make beef pepper steak for dinner, he also created this in our front yard (and took pictures to show me up):

My heart melted and got all squishy when I saw the photographic evidence of his Father of the Year-ness. (Just like the snowman will tomorrow when it's 60 DEGREES out!)

Speaking of, tomorrow is my VERY first vacation day since I started the new job. Although it has only been just over a month (with NO time off for the holidays except Christmas Day and New Years Day), I feel like I've been working full-time now forever. It's amazing how quick the transition was for me. It's like I never left the corporate world, even though I had been out of Boston for over 6 years. Crazy.

On tomorrow's agenda:
Baking chocolate chip cookies with Baby while his brothers are at school;
Sharing said cookies with Mrs. Chicky and Chicky Baby!

And LOTS of relishing my time in the Trenches on my day off. I firmly believe I've become a better mother since I started working full time, if that makes any sense...

What a cute pic! Enjoy your day off. My day off from the boys tomorrow will be sent getting my house back in order after the holidays.

It makes total sense. You found some balance. I know it sounds backwards but it makes sense to me! (Hopefully I will be the same way next week!) Tell hubby to stop showin off b/c he is making hubby over here sweat!

Sometimes Daddy's are just too much fun! That was nice to come home to I bet!
Enjoy every second on your first day off!

Cool snowman! (literally) I like how they went with the baseball hat.

MadMad said...

I think Daddies can show us up because they only do it all once in a while... so don't feel bad! I see you're on Bossy's trip! I was too intimidated...

Enjoy your day off!

What a cute pic. My husband would die for some snow. It's not gonna happen here in So Cal.

Yes, I agree. I'm a better mother cause I work full-time. Angry Toddler and I really clash if we have too much together time. He really does enjoy preschool and all his friends.

I hope you are enjoying the job related aspects of you're new job also. Nothing worse than crappy co-workers.

a better mother. that doesn't sound strange at all. i have a friend who i know would be horrible at staying at home and she knows it as well. i truly believe some mom's are better mothers if they work. enjoy your day.
oh and you have been a trooper about going back. really you inspire me.
