Being a full time mom to 3 wonderful kids, I was very very hesitant about attending this Internet Boot Camp. You know how it is - getting ready for school, eating mac n cheese or pizzas every night, forgetting homework, choir & violin practice etc….. How can I expect my husband to manage all that plus his daytime job ?
Luckily, I got my 2 neighbors & a very capable part time babysitter to help for Thursday & Friday. Then daddy duty goes full time on Saturday, Sunday & Monday. I think he will go bonkers by Monday night as the kids have no school due to Martin Luther King Day. Then I found out on the way to the workshop that my travelling companion & I have booked separate return dates. I thought we were coming home on Monday & he booked Tuesday ! My dear friend is recovering from a brain injury & he is starting a http://dicters.net new website – see www.mailboxchief.com So, I ended up changing my return date to Tuesday because I really want to travel with him.
Fortunately, my husband is the one who pushed me to sign up for this & he is OK about me coming home later. He said : “Enjoy youselves!”
There was so much preparation to ensure that I leave with a peace of mind. Preparing for the workshop was much easier – only 2 steps that took me half an hour. I even typed the routine from Thursday to Monday, spent the whole Wednesday afternoon cooking chicken stew, spareribs with blackbean sauce & Bolognese sauce.
Then, I have to show my husband the kids closet & how to match the outfits for church. (and it”s going to be very cold this weekend) I think he will have problems finding the kids underwear & socks by Sunday.
Actually, I have to give him alot of credit. He has been a great daddy : takes them to their favorite restaurant, plays baseball with them, bath them, reads to them, make wonderful breakfast for them on weekends, goes trick or treating with them, showers them with their favorite book or toys, goes on fun roller coaster rides, you get the point.
Thank you, pie (I know you will read this) – thank you for this wonderful opportunity for me to learn how to set up a website & a chance to do something that I never thought I could ever do. I love you – my super daddy husband.
