Reading this NYTimes op-ed piece called "Till Children Do Us Part" makes me thankful that

1. P and I discussed how we wanted family life to look like before we had kids.

2. He does the majority of the cooking and the wash (and packing the boys' lunch boxes)-- so have worked against falling into traditional gender roles.

Of course, there's no gloating here. We still need work on the hanging out together with no children present bit.  Yes, a regular babysitter and a weekly or even bi-weekly or even monthly date night would be great. However, right now we'd settle for three sleeping boys, a good bottle of red wine, and another disk of Slings and Arrows. Why'd they only make three seasons of that show?
