"My Husband Rocks" Fridays! #2

Yep! He Rocks! He's absolutely incredible! You know why? He took care of our 5 kids...YES, all five of our kids ages, 14, 12, 5, and 18 Month old twins while I went away for 5 days to the Cherish Bound convention!!! I know! I'm totally speechless too....well, I'm never speechless, but yes, he did that and everyone survived. There were 5 kids when I got home....all alive...and he still had some life in him too...sort of.

I'll set the picture for you so you can understand why he so rocks......

  • He worked from home while watching the twins all day....included conference calls and a very, very large report that was due.
  • Got all the kids to the bus stops on TIME
  • No injuries
  • He took ALL five to a soccer tournament that lasted 3 of those days, stayed in a hotel, and went to the games to watch both of our older daughters play!
  • And....he never called and bugged me! NOT once!
I've always known that he's a pretty cool guy, but this just puts him right over the top! I didn't realize how lucky and blessed I was until I shared this story with some of my friends and they couldn't believe it and said that their husbands would never, ever, ever even think about doing that for them....huh? Serious? I thought all husbands did this......apparently not! Just the ones that ROCK!!!!!!

I'm such a lucky girl! For more Rockin' Husbands visit Katy Lin's blog The Great Adventure!

Props to the hubby!

Yeah, I went on an girlfriend gettaway with two of my best gals and their hubby's were caling honestly, every 20 minutes-ish... With stupid questions like: Do we still have pizza left overs in the fridge?? (AND HE WAS HOME!!)

Then I was like "Just turn your phone off." But she said she couldn't because he'd be mad.

Yeah! You are blessed! No possible way my hubby would ever ever do that! He comes home from work and is home maybe 5 min and he has already lost his temper. In his defense he does work ALL of the time. Leaves at 4:30 in the morning and gets home at 7 in the evening. Works on Saturday and some Sundays. But still!
