Rob had the week after Miss A off of work (paternity leave), then my mom came to help for a week. Rob had another week off (regular leave) allowing me a full three weeks of rest and recovery. We've found that when I get that good recovery time in that the whole family benefits. We've also been incredibly blessed to have meals delivered by friends for nearly the whole three weeks!
Now it's time to get back to normal. Daddy kept things in order around the house, so everyone is ready for me to jump in without needing too much re-ordering. My freezer is full of meals, so I should not have to make dinner again for a while (Miss E is going to help me with getting things started in the crock pot and the finishing touches for the meals). I'm also thankful that we are coming up on Thanksgiving and Christmas; times of school breaks and extra time off for Daddy! We will be keeping the holidays low key and just enjoy the family time.
