Yesterday was Andrew's birthday. We celebrated by going out to dinner at one of our favorite DC restaurants - all eight of us. Afterwards, we took the kids to a nearby playground and enjoyed the record temperature. It was so great getting out and just being together. As RSV season is nearing the end, we have been going out more and it has been fabulous.
Andrew is an amazing father and I feel so blessed to have him as my husband. For those of you who don't know, I work at night. This means that Andrew is responsible for making sure homework gets done, dinner is on the table, table is cleared, kids are bathed, stories are read, teeth are brushed and prayers are said - times six! In the morning, I get to sleep in while Andrew ensures that the oldest three get ready for school while he packs their lunches. He is usually up by 5:30am as we have some early risers in our house. He does all of this without complaint. What a guy! Thank you, Andrew!
