Crockpot Peanut Clusters ~ Only 5 Ingredients in these Easy Slow Cooked Sweet Treats!
So today is going to be a sappy post about how absolutely amazing my hubs is. In the way of I’m am so dang lucky to have this man and how did I get this blessed. We welcomed Miss Rylin into our lives a little over a week ago and we have been so blessed. We are adjusting as all families do with a new addition, but it’s been amazing. I’ve also been super blessed that my hubs was able to take a week off over work (thank Mr. Bossman!) and he has been busy at home. First he took care of all three of his girls while I got back to feeling “normal”. Let’s just say as normal as a mother with a newborn can get. Plus he had Miss K to tend to since she has been a stage 3 clinger to one of us at all times. Don’t worry. I get it. It’s a huge adjustment for her and we’ve been trying to focus on her too. Plus he’s been taking care of Miss Rylin.
Seriously this dude is a rockstar. Want to hear about how many dirty diapers he’s changed? Let’s just go with that face that when I went in for the baby’s first check up a few days after we were discharged and had to change a dirty diaper I fumbled. Fumbled majorly and then I looked at the nurse guilty and said uhhhhhh Dad’s been doing this. That’s right. I think I had changed about 2 diapers in the first 5 days of this child’s life.
Then let’s talk about how one day I looked over in the kitchen and him and Miss K were making cookies. Like not as in the we bought the dough in the grocery store and broke up the cookie dough pieces but as in homemade cookies. Well, they were the jar cookies, but still this dude is awesome! Or the one day I went to take a nap while Miss K caught some zzzz’s and Rylin was sleeping and woke up to all the toys picked up and the house half way in order. And then I left for a massage… Sigh.
I think I just fell in love with this man all over again.
And he leaves me tomorrow. Back to work he goes. I sorta, kinda want to freak out and hyperventilate. So I called my Mom and said to expect us for guests tomorrow morning. I’m just going to ease into this whole staying at home thing with two children. Do you blame me?
