What is my husband doing in this picture?
He's digging for a homework packet for a certain oldest child who lost it! We were trying to get out of town for Easter weekend when the packet was discovered missing. We looked everywhere for it and couldn't find it. The 10 year old was in tears! My husband thought it may have been thrown away. His trash can digging didn't unearth the missing homework, either.
My son found the homework packet the following Monday when he when back to school. Turns out even though it was supposed to stay home and be worked on little by little over a few weeks, he'd put it back in his backpack after doing some work one night and then took it to school the next day and left it in his desk at school.
I'm so glad I snapped that picture, though, because it sums up what parenthood is often like - sacrificial and messy!
