No, before we get started, I'm not a single parent. I have been, and I am on occasion when my husband goes out of town for work(like today through Friday).
I have such a respect for everything that single mom's do. I am in awe of what they accomplish and how seemingly they seem so calm and have their crap together.
So my husband leaves today for a business trip. He'll be gone for 3 days. That equates to:
3 sporting practices
1 boy scouting event
3 daycare drop offs
6 off to school/back from school
1 after school activity
a School science project
Child labor(chore heckling)
then those annoying neccessities like feeding them and bathing them and getting them to bed!
I don't know how single mom's do it. I was a single mom when my oldest was a toddler, for about a year or so. It was easier then for some reason. Less activities outside the house I suppose.
So somewhere in there I have to figure out how to call my father in law for his birthday and let contractors into my parent's house because they decided to leave as well. Abondonment anyone? I'm kidding.
So I couldn't sleep last night, thinking about what I couldn't forget and how to get organized when it's a 3 vs. 1 and I'm running zone defense. So I may gain this week, not sure. I'm going to try to get my bike riding in, but if the toddler attaches herself to me I won't be doing anything but squats and lunges with a 25 pound weight attached to my hip. LOL
Hope you all have a good rest of the week! Wish me luck.
PS Yes, a HUGE shout out to all those single Dads out there too! You all are amazing!!!!
