...because let's be honest, the kids never say it, right?
So thank you, Ben, for taking the last three weeks off of work to make my transition back to work easier. Having to worry only about getting myself ready in the morning has made things so much more manageable. Thank you for taking such good care of the kids during the day. Thanks for taking them blackberry picking, to the park, and to that extra-special donut shop (although I know that that was purely motivated by your own desire to eat many, many donuts). Thank you for trying to keep the house clean (even though we both know that it's futile at this point). And thank you for having dinner ready when I got home at night because I'm pretty sure that I'm about five times more hungry when I'm nursing than when I'm pregnant.
Thank you for being you. I must have been one hell of a smart woman to choose you all those years ago.
