The first time I was really out was last year when I attended my Grandmother's funeral back in the Philippines for two weeks. I was able to leave the two men in my life because hubby wasn't working that time due to job lay off. It was like, I got a call from P.I. today and need to be on the plane the next day. He wasn't in the position to say "no"...he was in-charged! They had great time except for the first few days; Jake kept waking up in the middle of the night asking for me or couldn't sleep without me. Anyway, I don't have problem leaving the house and son to hubby except that Matt couldn't really take care of our son and the house at the same time. He'll do his best though and that is enough for me. One thing I learned that hubby is not good in multi tasking when it comes to house work and kid. When I came back....he told me house how much he missed me and that he gained greater appreciation of my job as a full time wife and mother. Since then, he stop complaining about his job :-).
