Ok, I have to gossip a bit...

Tonight was BTSN, and as I was leading the presentation in my room, E was in P's. I have to say - and this is really the meat of my message - I'm liking having an involved husband! That's one plus of working full-time, we've managed to rejigger schedules so that E picks P up on M/W/F. He's doing the 'Wednesday Ice Cream Line', and the Friday hang out on the playground. He's even scheduled some play-dates. I think the only way he could be so involved was to have me step out of the way. Now, don't get me wrong, he feels a little out of place still in this role. But I am loving it because now I think he feels 'invested' enough to share opinions about things that in the past only concerned me.

So anyway tonight at BTSN, E gave me the scoop about which moms seemed clique-ish, who was the 'know it all', (I know more than you, lady, so chill out with the superiority) and who he really liked. He shared how he felt bad that he failed to introduce someone, and his concern that P's story of going swimming only contained the word 'pool' (spelled 'pol'), while her neighbor had a whole paragraph of writing. Mind you, if I had been there, and simply relayed these experiences, it would be blown off. Now that he's 'invested' though, it's like talking to a girlfriend!

I'm a big fan of the husband being involved. Drew does Friday pick-up, maybe they can hang out. :)
