I feel like this makes me lose some of my mom cred, but I'm ok with that, because more importantly, it speaks volumes about how involved and helpful Brian is, and I just wanted to take a moment to publicly recognize and thank him for that.
He helps with everything when it comes to the kids, and I literally mean everything: diapers, meal prep, getting them dressed, playtime, baths, bedtime, daycare drop-off/pick-up, discipline, you name it. But more than that? He does it all without complaining. And when he's stuck doing it solo (which admittedly happens to him more often than it happens to me), he handles it like a champ and doesn't ever make me feel guilty for being gone.
I knew I hit the jackpot when I snagged Brian as a husband, but had no idea how thankful I'd one day be to have him as a partner in raising our kids. Colby, Clara, and I are truly the luckiest to have him in our lives.
And in case there is any doubt about just how much influence he has in this house, then consider exhibit A and exhibit B from my solo bedtime duty on Wednesday: Colby and Clara reading their Darth Vader books in bed :)
