Joys of Single Parenthood…
So Michael is doing his whirl-wind trip of three states this week. He left yesterday for NJ, today has his interview there, stays overnight and then heads towards Pittsburgh tomorrow for an interview on Thursday. The kids are doing there best to remind me of the joys of single parenthood and it hasn’t even been 24 hours yet!
- Miss C who hasn’t worn any of the overalls in her drawer since they got put there decided today is the day (and of course she can’t do them up or undo them on her own – still not sure why this is a big deal? think potty time)
- you don’t have someone else to nudge when someone starts crying in the middle of the night or to help change diapers.
- and when I gave the kids a bath last night and lets just say there was an accident in the bath requiring getting them out, cleaning the tub out, cleaning it and redrawing bath water.
Love them dearly but I’m a little worried it hasn’t even been 24 hours! 🙂
Miss L doesn’t quite have the understanding of what is going on. I’m still here in my pajamas and she thinks that any time now Daddy is going to be waking up, that I’ve just been letting him sleep in.
And of course Miss C wants to know how many darks (yes she counts nights not days) until … just about everything in the calendar year. Halloween, until the baby is born, Christmas, when Daddy gets back, when we will go stay at Grandma & Grandpa’s… the list goes on and on.
Does anyone know of something that would allow me to instantly know how many days there are until…? I keep thinking there is probably an app for the iTouch but since I haven’t made that purchase yet that doesn’t do any good yet. Best thing I can come up with when I’m by my computer is having the days of the year up on my Google Calendar so I can (hopefully) do the subtraction in my head from one date to today.
Well it is time to try and get something done today. Enjoy!
