My wife and I have been a great team for what seems like forever. Or at least since the year 2000.
We don’t have set chores or defined responsibilities, we just do our best to run the household. Together we are making it work. When one of us is overwhelmed, the other picks up the slack. No fights, no begging, no remorse- just a helping hand whenever needed.
A phrase used by some of my coworkers is “Teamwork Makes the Dream Work“. This is especially true in our household. We are a team. A team of crazy people trying to make it through the universe.
Our dream is to have a happy household. It doesn’t come easy either. There is so much on the table that is happening: school, chores, jobs, driving, shopping, cleaning… the list goes on and on. We have to work together to keep it cohesive.
Laughing, joking, talking, listening, caring, comforting… Our home is happy. Our children are happy. My wife and I are happy. Somehow it’s all working out. Our dreams are being fulfilled every day. We are doing our best as husband and wife/ mother and father.
