This weekend, Mommy was at a wedding in LA, so it was just me and Malachy this past weekend. It made me feel that much more blessed to have Shien as a partner. It was awesome hanging out with Malachy, but it made me that much more appreciative that we have a team. When one of us is tired or bogged down with work, we have each other, and that makes a HUGE difference. I thought about all the single moms and dads out there, or even the parents that go it alone most of the time, like stay-at-home moms and dads. And… I only have ONE child! 😉 It makes such a difference when there is support.
So, Malachy and I got to eat take-out (more than once 😉 ), played in the tent, went to the library, played in the park, went food shopping at Trader Joe’s, ate out, and I even managed to cook chicken stew, and had Malachy doing his homework at the same time! I got a glimpse of why some parents resent homework so much sometimes. 🙂 He even got to pitch in with the cooking after he was done. It was a great feeling to have Shien come home to a hearty cooked meal, and a semi-cleaned up house. Trying to be a good Dad, a good husband… Priceless… 😉
