High fives to all you single mamas out there… seriously. I’m pretty much single-momming it 4-5 days a week at the moment, and if you ask me how I’m doing, I’ll answer honestly.
Ok, since you asked… I’m at the “I just gave all three of my kids melatonin and now I’m sipping on year-expired Theraflu because mama’s got a cold, and by goodness you children just need to sleep through the night because I’m the walking dead!!” Yup, that’s where I am.
Big E still has a fever this evening, which means he can’t go to school tomorrow…. sooooooo… there’s that. I think I finally convinced Baby E he can’t crawl into bed with me tonight because he might catch all the bad mommy germs, and Big E is sleeping on a recliner in the living room, so we’ll see how we fare tonight. 🙂
Now, it’s not all bad. We read lots of books in the evenings. We play some games. We eat dinner together. They get baths (ahem) as often as I can give them to them. And we still manage to hit our 7:30 bedtime most evenings. I’d say we aren’t doing too shabby.
We knew going into these next few months that things would be rough, with Tim spending more time away from home, and it is. But there is a light at the end of the tunnel, and we are holding the course. 🙂
I’m really not complaining about my situation (I know, that’s a weak argument) but I really am blessed by where we are. I’m thankful for my incredible hubby for going the extra mile to help secure our future plans- he’s a good man, one of the best I have ever met, and each day is made better by his being in it. So tonight I will drift off to my Theraflu dreams, confident that I love that man more each day. 🙂
