this last week Adam had off from school and it was glorious.
we loved having him home and being able to spend time together.
and i especially loved his extra patience & energy to care for this little rascal.
Adam is actually a much better stay-at-home-mom than i am.
he woke up with Elijah almost every morning over break,
made him eggs or crepes or something other than dry cereal for breakfast,
cleaned the house before lunch time each day,
worked on flash cards with Elijah,
and basically was the awesomely fun parent while i did nothing.
[though i did get sick halfway through the week so i did have an excuse... but he's still better.]
we even got to go out a few times because i wasn't alone to wrangle a kicking toddler in the shopping cart. and even then Adam could stop Elijah from throwing tantrums before they even started.
a skill i have yet to learn.
i am really grateful to have a husband that is so hands-on and helps out a lot with raising our son.
as Eli gets older, i am reminded more often how much i rely on Adam.
and that we are a team in all of this parenting stuff.
just like our marriage, our parenting is a partnership.
and every day i'm even more grateful that i get to do it all with Adam.
he really is my better half!
[and now he's back at school and i miss him a lot already... when can school be over forever?!?]
