Benefits of

Whenever I tell another woman that Blake works from home, I get the look like, "Oh, I am so sorry. That must be horrible." Sometimes I play along but usually I will take the opportunity to explain the long list of benefits. Here are just a few:
  1. Built in babysitter. If Sadie is sleeping, I can run a few quick errands by myself. Yes ladies, ALL BY MYSELF. Enough said.
  2. The only traffic Blake deals with are the laundry piles in the hall.
  3. Lunch dates. Occasionally, Blake will take Sadie and me out to lunch. Even if we don't go somewhere, it's nice to eat as a family.
  4. No alarm clock. Blake doesn't have to be to work by a certain time so we arise when we are good and ready. We are very fortunate that Sadie sleeps in until at least 8:30 am.
  5. Someone to talk to is just a knock away. Sometimes not even a knock! I just barge into his office if it's really important!
  6. I have someone to carry the groceries up our three flights of stairs in the middle of the day.
  7. He can usually clock out by 5:00 pm. This means we can eat a early dinner and I have lots of help with our busy little girl.

NO JOKE. I usually have to try to cram all my errands into the 1.5-2.5 hours between Hayden's naps, or wait until he's gone down for the night.

Sometimes, I think about luring Ryan to come work at home with me....
