Solo Parenting

I’ve been on my own with the little guy for the past couple days due to Shawn having to go on a business trip. He’s coming back today and I have to say that it is not a moment too soon. Don’t get me wrong, I love the peanut so much and enjoy being able to spend my time with him. I’m blessed that I am able to stay home and don’t have to deal the stress and worry that comes with sending your little one to day care while working full time. That being said, I really need a break by the end of the day and Shawn is amazingly helpful with taking up the reigns so I can get a breather. He also helps me so much with the little things; letting out the dog in the morning, getting bottles ready, making coffee, the list goes on and on. Okay, I’m not writing a post about how awesome my husband is (but I totally could!) but I want to explain why I am feeling extra frazzled at this point. Between being “on” with Joseph without any back up, no real interaction with anyone but an infant and a dog, and having to take care of all the big and little things through out the day and night, I am ready to drop. God bless the single parents out there who do this everyday without end. I am not sure I could make it. I am so lucky that I have Shawn coming back today. . . . maybe we should “welcome” him at the airport.
