So, I'm a single mom this week! My hubby is gone to a pastor's conference until Thursday. It's times like these I wish we homeschooled because I would have taken the boys to grandparents and gone to the conference with him. There are other times I wish we homeschooled, but that blog is for another day - deciding to send son to public school was a long, hard decision.
Knowing there is no one about to walk in and ask why I'm still on the computer - I've spent quite a bit of time checking out the FlyLady and reading other blogs! That FlyLady is something else and I want others' opinions of her and her methods. LiteratureLover seems to really accomplish a lot with the routines. Please let me know what you think and how you got started and the difference it's made for your home.
What is your advice for this single mom? Early baths, Benadryl, and off to bed? (for the boys, not me). Chicken nuggets and mac n cheese every night? (for the boys, not me) Major house cleaning so hubby is impressed/blessed when he returns home? I am really glad he's at the conference. Everyone needs renewal - especially pastors. I got my renewal weekend earlier this month when I flew to TN for a Beth Moore conference - all by myself! It was wonderful! I tried to get Heartsjoy to come along but she just couldn't do it. Maybe next time!
But seriously, I am thankful I'm not a single mom. I can't imagine a more difficult situation. Even if hubby is in the house, but has checked out (you know what I mean), at least he's here if I need him. Just his walking through the door takes the pressure off me at the end of the day. No one should have to parent alone.
