Default It's tough being a parent in a dual income family.

Wife has to work this whole weekend. I fortunately have it off. I have the kids as usual. We might go to the mall, grab some lunch, or do donuts in some parking lot. Should I just leave her a note and return sometime Monday evening?

I know the feeling, I work 9 days a month and my wife is a bar tender. I get all kinds of time off and can't go anywhere. At least I get lots of time with the kids.

Ahhh...9 days a month. Must be nice. I work 14 days a month working 12 hour shifts. If I could do it all over again I would go full time hose dragger. You guys get paid to sleep. Lucky ^*%(#).
