Today I left Chris with three of the boys for a couple of hours. When I returned, Chris greeted me with a litany of crazy boy moments. He seemed in good spirits about it all, but a little worn out.
Those couple of hours were a small taste of what he has in store for the weekend. You see, for only the second time I'm going to leave ALL the boys in his care. I'm fortunate to have a husband willing and able to take on the brood, alone. I'm anticipating they'll all have a ball. I'm sure the weekend will entail lots of frozen pizzas, movies, Notre Dame football, and wii. That being said, I'm not sure who is more excited for me to leave: the boys or Chris?
My hope is that Chris truly enjoys the time with his boys, and likewise for his sons. Selfishly, I hope his weekend breeds a greater appreciation for my current occupation. But, not too much of an appreciation that he never offers again!
