I have to say, I married well. I haven’t been home much the last five days because I have been helping a good friend with funeral arrangements. Her husband died quite suddenly in an accident last Thursday evening. When something like this happens, there’s not much time but a ton of things to do to prepare for the funeral. It was a blessing for me to be able to help my friend and to see the generosity and love of friends, community and family for her and his surviving family.
Anyway, since I was gone most of the weekend and up until the funeral yesterday, Nathan has been playing Mr. Mom at home with the kids. He is so great. I didn’t leave him with instructions or prepared meals or clothes to dress the girls or anything. I was usually running out the door to run errands and such. He took care of everything. The kids were fed, bathed, read to, played with, all that good stuff. Although I would come home to a messy house some days, and I totally didn’t care that the house was messy, he would eventually pick up all the stuff and cleaned while I did more funeral stuff at home. Never a complaint or even any comment about me not helping out around the house. He so willingly helped out at home so I can help others. And he was happy to be with the kids. He’s such an amazing man. How did I get so lucky?
P.S. That’s why I didn’t blog the last couple of days.
