Christmas responsibilities: Paul has been taking over a lot of my duties, particularly on the many days off he got in January, thanks to stock market holidays. He has spent a lot of time with the homeschool moms at our weekly park day.
He came to me yesterday, sheepish, saying that he was going to do more for Christmas next year. He got to listen to all the mothers complaining how their husbands do nothing and that getting ready for holidays is a lot of work. It was apparently eye-opening.
