My husband is a superhero

Matt saved the day.

Even now when Ethan is nearly 4 months old there are days where I look at the clock, realize that it's the afternoon and that I haven't brushed my teeth yet. Today was one of those days. I was rushing around all morning getting laundry done, taking care of Ethan's needs, making to do lists for our long weekend, etc (yes, those three tasks can take up all morning). I was so busy that I missed seeing my boy roll from back to belly!!! He was hanging out on his side and must have flipped over when I went to go change over the laundry. Unfortunately it seems he has forgotten how to roll from belly to back b/c I found him face planted into the blanket screaming his head off.

Most of the day flew by but Ethan was super fussy. I knew we had errands to run (teacher appreciation project was due at his daycare, we had nothing in the house to eat for dinner and I was even out of cereal which I NEED for a quick snack in the afternoons) but Ethan needed a long nap so errands would be impossible. Plus I couldn't even get myself together to leave the house.

I called Matt while Ethan was mid-breakdown. I left him a voice mail saying that I hoped he was on his way home for his lunch break b/c it's been a tough day.

I finally get Ethan calmed down and napping when Matt came home. Just in time. Not only did he clean the litter box but he ran the project to daycare and stopped at the grocery store to pick up some necessities. I was able to eat a quick bowl of Rice Krispies, shower AND brush my teeth while Ethan napped. It's the little things that mean SO much.

Ethan is amazing too ... he even gave me enough time to write this. Now he's waking so I'll leave you with a pic of my guys...

Of course Matt is still a great uncle too. I love these pics:

Edited to add Matt's comment:
"you watch the baby all day & try to work, i come home for 5 mins & you are going to give me the credit?!"

Thank you! It's always nice to know that you're appreciated too.
