So, I was sitting at my kitchen table trying to work out how I was going to do school pick up in the torrential rain. It is usually easy, I drive a short walk away from the school and wait for my two boys to cross the storm drain and meet me at the car. But today it was so wet, I would have had to take my two little ones out to the school in the rain and manage to track down the big ones before the bell rang, so not to miss them and then us all be drenched.

But just before I left, my husband rang and told me he got permission from his boss to get the kids. (he finds it difficult to get out of work early, as he is a teacher himself).

What a great man!

  • naw, that’s really thoughtful of him


  • Did you work out a system for times like this so it didn’t happen again? On days when it’s raining heavily our kids know to wait inside the school gates for me, on normal days I meet them further down so they have a chance to chat w/ friends :P


  • The little things are the big things; the things that count the most! :)


  • Good on your hubby for taking the initiative.


  • He really stepped up and saved the day! So hard with little ones in the rain! What a relief for you.no wonder you love him: )


  • What a dream hubby he sounds like.


  • What a wonderful thoughtful husband, I have to say mine is the same, always thinking of us and putting us first. We are very lucky ladies.


  • We are some of the lucky ones !!!


  • it’s the little things they do that counts most


  • It really is lovely when they put in a bit of unexpected effort, it’s the little things that count :)
