Kudos to Mark!

Man, I need to be hugely pregnant, tired, and busy all the time!

The last few days Mark has just been the sweetest guy. Yesterday morning he massaged away one of the worst leg cramps I've ever had in all the pregnancies combined. That was one mean sucker. I had to wake him up at 6am to get it out for me, and he didn't complain at all. Just gave me a kiss and went back to sleep! Thanks honey, what a guy.

Then he woke up and helped with the morning rush, got William ready for the day, hauled bunk bed parts to the garage, took Nathan to school, went shopping with me so he could haul the basket or push the cart for me, put all the stuff away, and started laundry.

This morning he got up early and took Nathan down to get his stitches removed although he had been up until 3am. That way I could take Oren to school and come back home with William instead of hauling a bunch of kids all over the place. Then he took Nathan to therapy right after, and I was able to go grocery shopping with just William - so much easier than all the kids with me! He fed Nathan lunch so I could eat before I took Nathan to school. I came back and he was mowing the lawn! Entertained William for a while so I could catch a nap before he went to work.

And all this was without me asking for his help a single time! All on his own! He said he doesn't want me stressed out if he can take some of the load, and he knows I get tired a lot more easily right now. Awwwww! What a sweetie!

(sometimes you just gotta give the guys some credit.....)
