Recently, Eric and I have made a little arrangement that is working out like a dream for both of us...
We split our Saturdays. He gets to go fishing for hours on end in the afternoon and I get to sleep in, read, watch t.v., and run errands sans the three amigos in the morning.
We've been doing it for a few weeks now, and I have to tell you it is making me a whole new person. Getting to do whatever I want to all of Saturday morning is great. Not having the kids in my face first thing when I wake up is a day changer. Eric gets to fish all afternoon and he's actually starting to miss us =) Trading half days makes it so neither one of us feels any guilt.
I just have to share, this morning Eric coincidentally took the kids on the EXACT path I was taking on my morning off (craft store, dollar store, Sweet Tooth Fairy). Thankfully, I was far enough behind them that I didn't run into them, but boy, would that have been funny.
These pictures are from Friday night, but they capture another glimpse of our day-to-day. Eric napping while the kids watch tv. Not an uncommon occurrence at all.
Life is simple around here and that's just how I like it.
