There never seems to be enough of it.
This is especially the case when my husband is working nights.
There is no time to really talk to him.
There is no time for cuddling.
We all try to cram as much “Daddy time” in to the 2 hours he is awake before he heads off to work again.
And if work pages him during those 2 hours…well, our time is cut even shorter.
This morning, as I was getting breakfast ready and thinking about what I was most thankful for this week, that precious time is what popped into my head.
I am thankful that the kids had time to play in shaving cream with Daddy this Tuesday. Not only did they get to have some time playing with their dad, but I got 20 minutes to recharge, in another room, before I had to get dinner ready and 2 kids into bed. (The fact that Daddy did the clean up was an added bonus for me!)
I am thankful that when my husband woke yesterday afternoon, he was able to take our son to the library for a little while. It was a wonderful treat for Monkey while his sister had playdate with a friend.
Speaking of time, it’s time for me to chase a kid into the tub…. So, I am turning it over to you. What are you thankful for this week?
