More about Mr. Husband

Mr. Husband playing with our son
The regular readers know there is a guy who is Mr. Husband.  Mr. Husband leaves the house about 7:20 a.m. each morning and drives an hour to work.  He then puts in 8 hours of work, which he doesn't always get paid for because his boss doesn't understand the term flat-rate.  That is a whole other post.  Then Mr. Husband drives home and arrives right around 7 p.m.

My husband is a diligent, loyal worker.  He knows he may not get paid for all the work he is doing, but he never skimps on a customers car.  He takes pride in fixing a car so the owner can have a safe, reliable vehicle.  We all make mistakes, but his come back rate (where a car needs to be returned because it wasn't fixes properly) is less than 5%.  I dare say it is less than 1%. 

After my husband returns home, he has a little bit of time to play with our son before bedtime.  My son has been raised only seeing his father for about 2 to 3 hours a night on weekend. 

My husband allows me to stay home and take care of our son.  He knows that family is important and we agreed that one of us would raise our son.  My husband goes above and beyond, yet it isn't always enough.  I have a book published and am a Family History Researcher, but during the summer months, we agree that my son comes first.

I am so thankful that my husband loves me even when I am being stubborn.  He loves me when I can only lay on the couch in pain.  He has loved me through winter depression and depression about not being able to get pregnant a second time.  He has kept his wedding vows and loving me through the good times and bad times.
