Please dad, take the boy with you, visit the grandparents and let me have some undisturbed alone time, a lot of sleep, a good read, time to sew, time to just sit on the couch and watch nonsense on tv. And go out with friends at night! Oh, that would be awsome! 🙂

  15. one year, my daughter made me a calendar. Each month had a picture that she made with her children’s hands or feet. I know that it took her some time, but she had construction paper, paint and two small children. Each month, I had a new picture to look at.
