So, as a follow up, my hubby & I implemented a new system. He just started a new jobs about 3 months ago, but they’re really great, so instead of me taking all of the time off we are now taking half days. This way we have a changing of the guard, we can both show some face and stay up to date on immediate items, and not one person is with a fussy, cranky, and angry dictator of a toddler all day.
