Jeremy sat me down the other day and said, "Honey, I think I finally get what it's like for you to be home with the kids all day". I looked at him a bit in disbelief and, as if reading my mind, he continued.
"When I was working all day, I got to leave the house and get away from the kids. Even though I was still working, I had some variety at least. Sure, I had to come home everyday and do my work at home, but I didn't have to do it 24/7".
I looked at him again with tears in my eyes, I think he actually gets it, I thought.
"So, I've decided that you need to have girls nights out or whatever you need and I will take time during the day for myself to go hit some balls or something. We both need time away from the kids."
Wow. That is all I can say, wow.
I have been struggling with this since I became a Mother, almost 8 years ago. It just took him losing his job for 3 months for him to finally get it!
Husband losing his job = SUCKTASTIC
Husband being home everyday to help you with things = Less Sucktastic
Husband FINALLY understanding what it is like to be you = Awesome.
