He said, “Mommy gets a night off.”
He said what?
My husband continued, “Nope. No more mommy tonight, she gets the night off. You get Daddy tonight.”
Daddy then preceded to complete the bath, put the pajamas on, and read the book. I still put the bug in bed, because that’s what I do.
What did 6:45pm bedtime and Daddy helping out allow me to do?
Clean my kitchen. Put the food away. Empty the dishwasher. Start coffee for tomorrow. Set lunches aside for tomorrow. Clean all counters and tables, and load the dishwasher for a new load.
Caught up on kitchen duty.
The power of teamwork. I hope it can last.
