This is a spin-off from the thread about the NYT article on co-parenting and how satisfied you are with the division of labor. It made me think about how much DH and I rely upon each other and other folks to keep things going at our house. I thought it would be nice to have a thread to talk about how awesome your co-parent/caregiver is or something amazing they have done lately. This can also include your nanny, daycare, babysitter, family member, whatever! Let's appreciate our village!
My husband works so. dang. hard. to support our family and my parents. Two full time jobs, getting his MBA on nights and weekends, being there for me and helping with DS - he's Superman. He never complains about any of it and he doesn't have any hobbies or activities that take him away from home. He's either working or he's Daddy/DH and that's the way he wants it to be.
We hire my mother to come help us with DS 3 days a week. She needs the income and she'll be watching DS those 3 days when I go back to work part-time in September. She loves DS SO much and he loves her too and its great to see their bond. I'm glad I have a trusted caretaker who can give me a break or let me sleep in a little bit and put up with DS' really insane feeding issues with only the patience a granny could have.
