I'm So Glad When Daddy Comes Home

Life is so much better when Dad is back in town. Just today, he:

  • made chocolate chip pancakes for breakfast

  • cleaned out the whole garage

  • replaced all dead light bulbs (of which there were many)

  • fertilized the lawn

  • restocked the wood pile

  • took all boys on traditional Saturday Home Depot/Taco Bell run so the girls could work out

  • fixed my hope chest which the twins have been using as their life-size jack-in-a-box toy

  • made pizzas on the grill for dinner

  • supervised bath/story/bedtime so that all little people were in bed by 7 pm

No wonder we miss him so much!!

Pizza on the grill?! What a clever idea!

What a star! Where does that leave you? Eating bon bons and watching tv?

Annie said...

Reunited and it feels so good...(Peaches and Herb anyone?).
So glad he's back. The 1:4 parent/kid ratio must be exhausting long-term!

I'm really happy for you. Really I am. My husband bookended his 4 hour nap by laying on the couch and watching TV.

Bridget said...

What a man! I'd hold on to that one. What a great tradition to do home depot and taco bell. Is that every Saturday? What do you and your daughter to do work out?

I LOVE it! I was asked to speak in Elder's Quorum tomorrow about what makes a good husband. I can't cause I'm teaching RS at the same time! But, if I were, I'd talk about your blog post. A husband who knows how much he is needed and puts in the extra effort even when he may be tired from traveling (or whatever) is the man who has a happy household. And luckily for me, I have one of those, too Gab! YEA YOU!!

Ok, he's the MAN. Wow! What an awesome guy!

B-rad! I'm so glad you're all together again!

Jessica said...

That is my kind of husband (really!). It actually makes me feel kind of useless...but someone has to brighten up their hardworking lives, right? That's my designated job.

Mique said...

I'm with Paige on this one- husband watching tv and taking naps on Saturdays...kills me!
Glad you got yourself a good one...he sounds like such a prince.

I too am one of the lucky ones. Do you ever get a hard time from your girlfriends because you have nothing to gripe about during their gripe sessions? I know it is hard to be us huh!!!!
