I have a question for all you single moms (and dads) out there. How the hell do you do it?! I mean, seriously. This raising kids business is at least a two man job. Maybe more. Who knows - those sister-wives may be onto something...
My husband just got home from a three day business trip and we practically threw him a parade we were so excited to have him back. And by "practically" I mean I made him take a cab home from the airport because Liam had karate and I forgot to leave a key in the mailbox like I said I would so he had to sit on the porch for 45 minutes waiting for us.
(I would blame the baby for having an ear infection and crying for 30 minutes as we tried to get out the door, but that's poor taste. Let's just call it what it is - mommy brain.)
Anyway, despite the failings of my welcome home committee, I can assure you I'm beyond thrilled to have him home.
Because when the baby spikes another fever and spends most of the night awake, it's really nice to be able to take turns stumbling around in the dark, holding and rocking and finding the Tylenol.
And when your alarm doesn't go off and it's raining and you're running really late and the last thing in the world you want to do is strap a feverish baby into a stroller and walk to school in the rain, it's a huge relief to have a husband who can pop a waffle in the toaster and drop the Kindergartner off at school.
And even though you might get a frantic call in the middle of your two minute shower and have to hop out and get dry and dressed and pack up the baby and move the car seat and drive to school and run through the rain without an umbrella to deliver the backpack that someone forgot, it's still really nice not to have to do it alone.
So to all you single parents out there, this one's for you! You guys are seriously AMAZING.
PS - OMG, Beyonce's body is INSANE! I think I knew that already but seeing it just now I was like, "Whoa." I was totally not ready for that jelly...
