Gentleman Husband

Halloween 2012

Morning sickness is totally lame.  I'm sick all day long.  This time around, I got a prescription for zofran, which helps me not throw up, but it doesn't stop me from feeling like I'm going to throw up.  All. The. Time.

This constant nausea is not conducive to being productive, feeding/clothing/bathing the children, cleaning the house, fighting with Lillian about homework, grocery shopping, doing laundry, or anything else that resembles  tasks accomplished by a responsible adult.  I mostly sit on the couch and let the kids watch 5 hours of TV a day.

And then... Tyler comes home!

Can I talk for a minute about how great he is?  He makes dinner, does the dishes, gets the kids ready for bed, finishes up Lillian's homework, reads stories, brushes teeth, says, "I love you one" "I love you two" with Nora, makes sure Ethan has his blankie, and then folds laundry by himself while watching back episodes of Arrested Development because I passed out at 7:30.

I have a lot of the Awesome Mother Guilt because I'm so useless right now, but it's very comforting knowing that Tyler has got it.  Maybe he secretly hates all the slack he has to pick up, maybe he secretly thinks that I'm malingering or just being lazy, but he doesn't let on.  He just makes sure my favorite blanket is covering my feet as I sleep on the couch.

#1 Thanks for reminding me why I DON'T want to be pregnant right now, even though everyone is asking me if I am.

#2 Congratulations and I hope this phase passes quickly

#3 I'm glad you have a good guy like Tyler watching out for you.

#4 You are so brave, and good luck with 4 cuties!

#5 Thanks for always being so real and not putting on airs on your blog. It makes me feel like I'm normal instead of inferior. It's good to know I'm on the same page as other moms. :)
