My husband started working at home a little over 7 months ago. Though there were some adjustments, there are many positives about this for our family. The biggest bonus for me is that he gets Andy, my first grader, ready for school and gets him to school. Andy is a high energy, high maintenance child. Having Scott do this for me helps my day more than he can know. When I have get Andy to school, my energy for the day is gone by the time he is at school. Until Andy came along, I never knew getting a 4, 5, or 6 year old to get dressed could be such a chore. Every year I think it will get easier. Maybe when he's 7, which is next month.
If Scott ever starts working outside the home again, I am not going to allow him to go to work until he gets Andy to school.
