Mr. Mom…Or How DOES She Do It?!?!?!

Abby leaves the house for a few hours to go get her hair cut and swing by the grocery store…doesn’t sound like a big deal, right???? Well the other side of the coin is that I am now in complete “charge” of the kids…hahahahahahahahaha!!!!!! that’s funny, huh? This blog is only to praise my wife. She does this ALL the time when we’re out on the road. We don’t have family close by, and aside from the folks at our church pitching in from time to time, she is all alone in this.

I can’t make it 4 hours without wanting to pull out my hair and lock them all in their rooms and curl up in the fetal position in the bath tub….frightening imagery, I know. She never complains about it…it is her joy to do. i love my kids, but I have decided there are reasons why men are “the hunter/gatherers”…basically, I’m a horrible homemaker. So here’s to you Abby….the most AMAZING, WONDERFUL, PATIENCE FILLED WOMAN on the earth!!!!!! I love you.
