I have to brag on Chris a little--I know, I usually spare you from the mushy stuff. But on Sunday afternoon, Chris watched all the kids so my mom, Melanie, and I could have a little "girl time" before they headed back to Charlotte on Monday. After a long day at church, where I knew Chris was beyond exhausted (in a good way), we literally pulled in the driveway and dropped all the kids off with him to take care of for the rest of the day. He acted (NOTE TO HUSBANDS: Even when you don't feel like it, it goes a long way with your spouse if you just fake it and don't make her feel bad) like he was ready to take on the world with the kids. It was great. His attitude allowed us girls to drive away without a care in the world! And we had a blast--we went to the mall, to a salon, out to coffee, to a few decorating stores, to dinner, and out to coffee again. We did not get home until after 10:00 pm. We were out all day, without one phone call from home with screaming kids in the background. The only thing I did receive from home, was this text from Chris: Please do not cut the opportunity short...take as long as possible and do it in style..you deserve it!!!
Isn't that sweet? A BIG MISTAKE, but very, very sweet.
Thanks, Honey, for a great day with my mom and sister--- I am sure the bank account will recover soon :).
