Very Busy Week

Ian is at a conference in San Jose. He’ll be back tonight sometime. 

It’s tough taking care of two small children by myself. [I love you, honey. You’re the best daddy in the whole world.] I definately never want to have to do this on a permanent basis. Just getting the three of us out the door this morning to take Lucas to school was a monumental feat!

I’m working at the magazine this week, which makes it extra hard. Asher stayed with grandma VoVo yesterday and she picked L up from school. I felt anxious all morning because the four of us were all scattered to different places. Ian in another city, Lucas at school, Asher apart from me, and me in my occasional work space in East Sacramento. I felt so far apart from everyone. I’m glad the boys were together in the afternoon.

Grandma made us dinner yesterday, so that was a giant help. Getting Lucas to eat it, however, was tough. He unfortunately did not get his Advent chocolate because of all the fussing and arguing over grandma’s spinach. I guess he prefers it raw as a salad, but I thought it was totally yummy.

Today Asher is off to the Bs’ house for babysitting. Lucas will join him there this afternoon. I’m off to the magazine again as soon as the baby wakes up from his first nap.

    I have been thanking my hubby daily for being an involved dad. I honestly don’t know how single parents do this – parenting is hard work! I’m impressed you were able to get out the door at all with two!
