My husband is the sweetest man in all the earth...

...and I know this is true, because my children like him better than they like me. Their very own mother. It's true! They do! When we visited my mom last week, Simon went on Daddy strike, which meant that he cried a lot and had a hard time sleeping. And as soon as he saw his daddy again, he was so happy! Lots of cuddling and snoozing in Daddy's arms. I caught this picture the night we returned home.

He is also the sweetest man in the whole world because he is willing to leave his nice, quiet office and work from home when I have a head cold and a screaming headache. It doesn't happen very often, but on days like today, he can read the desperation in my tone when I call him, and he drops everything to be Mr. Mom to these two rambunctious boys we have. It is 7:11 pm, and they have both eaten dinner, taken bathes, brushed their teeth, read Bible stories, and been tucked sweetly into bed. I am so thankful for him!
