I'm really enjoying this... Although I feel bad that he lost his job and we do need the money... Secretly, I am enjoying every second of it! For the last 3 weeks, he has done the cooking, cleaning, and taking care of the kids! I have done nothing! I play with the kids and I help feed them a bit, but other than that, our 4 year old daughter and 15 month old twin boys are daddy's duty! No more of him coming home and saying "I worked all day, what did you do?!" Instead I am getting thank you's for staying home with the kids and "I don't know how you do this everyday!" By 6pm, he's begging for a nap! I know I shouldn't be swimming happily in his misery, but I can't help it. He finally understands what it's like to stay home with the kids! 10x's the work! Now he's starting to go stir crazy. He actually asked if we could go visit my mom today, just to get out of the house! I'm thinking about going back to work and just letting him stay home with the kids for a few years... It's fair to trade back and forth, right?
