There is no way I could have done this by myself. I must admit that Joe and I make a pretty awesome team. He worked from home for a few days to help care for the boys. We had a very low key weekend. We cast aside any holiday obligations and stayed home to focus on our family. We spent a lot of time with the boys, occasionally getting stuff unpacked but mostly relaxing. It’s all seemed to pay off since the boys BOTH SLEPT THROUGH THE NIGHT last night and slept in till 8:30 am!
Parenting is a hard job with no vacation days but it’s also the most rewarding job, especially when the 3 year-old climbs into your lap, gives you a big hug and says, “Mommy, I love you!”
