While Mommy's Away...

I am home now and Mommy's tired. I might take the day off tomorry and leave you to be entertained by a few of the fun emails sent to me by hubby while I was away.

Smells Like Burning: I just changed an angry diaper. Gray was nice, but the diaper was wielding some fury.

and then later...

All Is Quiet: Just put the boys to bed after we chased fireflies in the yard in our pajamas.

and then in the morning...

RE: All Is Quiet: Ok- all of the boys were up at 5:30. Gray has brought me two boxes of cereal so far and yells "Noah's bus!" every time any kind of noisy car goes by. I think I finally understand what you mean when you say "I hope I get a nap today." I'm glad you're having so much fun. I hope this email only made you smile. It isn't intended to make you feel guilty. It is intended to make you laugh and remember why you deserve a little vacation. I love you so much babe. We need you in our lives more than you'll ever know.

It's so good to be home.

  9. That's so cute. Reminds me of my hubby and when I was away last weekend.

    It's good to getaway and great to be home and feel super appreciated. We know we are, it's just nice to hear it every once in a while otherwise we'd go completely insane!

  11. What a sweet message to you-THAT's definitely a keeper. If you keep baby books or scrapbooks for your boys, you should put copies of that message inside of them. (If for no other reason, their future wives can look at the message and encourage them to follow in dad's footsteps!) And of course, save an extra one for "the pink one." :-)

  20. That is cool! I always think it is great for dads to get a taste of "mommyness" once in a while to remind them what all we do all day long!

    My husband is going to have a similar opportunity in August to understand why I need my naps, too! I'm going on a weekend retreat with the women at my church. Can't WAIT!
