As you know, Daddy comes home later today. The last
But, there are some areas where I slacked . . .
I let you watch more TV and we had more movies nights in the last four weeks than we normally do/have in a year.
I bought crackers and cereal again. And let you eat them for dinner.
We did so little school that it is a good thing we started a month early.
I let you have a dessert after dinner. Even if you did not eat your dinner.
I gave into your whims. A lot. I bought you Ring Pops at the Cub Scout meeting because I just DID NOT WANT TO FIGHT. And, after all, it is a fundraiser for your Pack ;)
I let you stay in pajamas all day. (Just once)
I put you to bed without baths. Because I just needed more quiet time.
And I let you sleep in for the same reason.
But, with only a few more hours of single parenthood left, I feel my resolve, strength and perseverance coming back. After today we will be going back to our normal routine before Daddy left. I know it may be hard to get back into it all, and there may be wailing and gnashing of teeth. But, I am prepared and I am ready for it.
All because your Daddy will be home!
