So Robert has been "out of a job" for 2 weeks now. I thought I'd list some of the pros and cons of him not having a job. :-)
Pro: Another adult human being around to help out around the house and with the kids! (Drive carpool, stay home during nap while I get out, etc!)
Pro: All those "I-really-need-to-do-them-but-I-don't-have-time" jobs are getting done.
Pro: He gets a glimpse into my world. Robert said the funniest thing the other day. He said, "You know what I've realized since being home? That I keep picking things up and putting them back in their place - over and over again. And it's driving me crazy!" Yup - it's called life with 6 busy little hands!
Pro: He cooks! He smoked a Boston Butt all day Thursday! A recipe from his days working at a BBQ joint during college! YUM!
Pro: We LOVE having daddy around so much! He's just so darn fun!
I have to say, at first, I was really anxious about him being around a lot more. I have my weekly routine and I wasn't sure how he was going to like it/fit into it. Not that it's a bad routine, it's just I've got it down pat. And him being here threw a monkey wrench into it a little bit. But it's been nice. We will certainly miss him when he's back in his daily grind.
