The last couple of weeks have been a lot of fun for me (not really), but it is not so much about me as it is about my wife; she had a new ACL inserted in her left knee January 8. For her, all I can say is ouch. I think she is on the mend. Me? I can not tell which direction I am going.
I always appreciated my wife, and what she does, but until actually trying to fill in for her the last couple of weeks, I had no idea how much she really does. I think going to the office all day is a better deal for me than staying home with three rowdy boys.
This experience has taught me a couple of things. First, I have no idea how single parents keep up with work and family life. Second, I know why a lot of moms choose to go back to work instead of staying at home with the kids. Financial considerations not withstanding, working outside the home is much easier than raising kids.
