- He is home during the week. Unlike many of my friends, my husband works from home and only on the weekends. Therefore, instead of us doing all of our fun stuff during the weekend we get to spread it over the week. The older child does his homework and we get our coats on and go.
- I get to work at home. I quit my job several years ago and I now work at home trying to promote him and work on stuff with him.
- He is home during the week. No just kidding…
- I have to do stuff on the weekends by myself. The weekend is usually the time that families get to do things together. Most events happen on weekends. Special celebrations with family, like birthday parties for cousins. No matter which side of the family is hosting the event, I go. If I did not go to anything with just the kids, I would NEVER see anyone. Family understands that he is working. He sneaks in visits with family in between, or before, or after shows. I have learned that if I want to do something, I just have to go and do it. It was hard in the beginning, but I think I am getting the hang of it.
The kids understand that Daddy works on weekends and that we do as much as we can on weekdays. They like that he is there when they get home from school. Our family is just a little different from yours. I would not have it any other way. (Ok, well, maybe sometimes. Hahaha)
