An Eye-opening Experience


Sometimes I take care of the kids for a few hours while my wife goes out. Other times, when she’s sick, I step in to help do some of her work and keep the household running. That’s what I’ve been doing the past few days.

How she ever has dinner ready AND the house clean when I come home at night, I don’t know. It never happens when I’m in charge. On my watch, dinner is late (or messed up), books, toys, and couch cushions are strewn from one end of the house to the other, and oh yeah—I forgot to move the laundry again. It’s too many plates for me to spin at once!

This never fails to be an eye-opening experience for me. How easily I forget the dedication, skill, and hard work it takes to care for a house full of little people.

Just for fun today, we’re going to give away a “busy mama” book package including all our Busy Mamas Bible studies, Shopping for Time, and Loving the Little Years ($55 value).

What’s one way your husband helps lighten your homemaking load or support you as a mom?

I’m looking forward to learning 🙂
