Let me tell you, two and half weeks as a single parent of three kids is about two weeks too long, especially in the summertime when they're not in school and we really have no scheduled activities to fall back on.
I found that what I missed most while he was gone was the little things. I missed him, too, of course, but I guess as a stay-at-home-mom who does 90% of the stuff around the house, I never took into account how much the little things add up.
For example, he gives the boys their baths every night. He takes out the trash and the recycling (that bin gets really heavy!). He changes light bulbs. He gets creepy crawly things out of the house. He knows the special trick to get the pictures off our camera and on to our
So, I guess I just wanted to let him know that I appreciate all the little things he does around the house because they really do add up and I know this from experience since I had to do them all while he was gone.
Don't worry, though. I saved some of the fun for him since I couldn't figure out how to put the kids' towel rack back on the wall after they pulled it off. And I let him change the air filters, too. I know how to do that, but I didn't know that it was time to do it. See? What would I do without him?
Love you, Ryan!
