Well-- it was either Hubby would take Monday and Tuesday off and go back to work on Wednesday or he would take off Monday, work Tuesday, then take off again on Wednesday.
We chose the 2nd option thinking that it would break up the week more.
He also needed to get back to school to submit his 3rd quarter grades and put out assignments for his classes. I don't pretend to know what he does while at school, but at this point, I don't really care-- I just wanted him home with me!
And so it was, that when Jasper went fishing in a pee filled toilet bowl splashing like a human sprinkler and Ruby undid her diaper only to pee all over the boy's bedroom carpet, I was thinking why isn't he here with me?!
You'd think that with me and seven other sets of eyes, someone would've seen these crimes in progress and we could've put a stop to them, but no-- no one saw a thing until it was too late.
Did I mention the three kids with colds?
Amazingly, the kids did all their chores and I was able to shower before 9 am this morning.
The baby has been great in his nursing and sleeping and Parker saved the day by being an expert with the carpet cleaner. He's got it down to a science and was able to get the carpet shampooed faster than I could say, "Where's your Dad?!"
So by 3:40 pm this afternoon, when hubby walked in the door, all was in order. Toys were stowed, clothes were folded and put away, kids were napping, and I even had a smile on my face.
I can't wait till he returns to work on Thursday...ha!
