I am a full time nursing (RN) student and full time mommy to my sweet 20 month baby boy. It's been a hard road because my husband works out of town every week Monday-Friday.

Yesterday, all three of us (hubbo, baby and me) were laying down to nap and snuggle. My husband tells me, "I don't know how you do it."

I was away this month for 15 days on a nursing trip to China. I had no communication for the first 10 days, so my husband was totally on his own.

He told me, "Being home with Wyatt was not too bad, as long as I followed his program - nap when he naps, not try to do too much, etc. I don't know how you can take care of our son, nurse him, and do so well in your classes. I would have quit. You are stronger than me."

My heart melted! I know he loves me, but hearing him tell me he ADMIRES me means so much more to me!

It really is nice to know when they appreciate all we do in the background. My hubby says that too sometimes. Its good to hear them say it cuz they dont always realize how much we do for them, the kids, the house, etc etc the list is never ending.
