Mom went away this past weekend, leaving just the three of us to venture out on our own. You realize how tough it is if you're a single parent, I tip my hat to them because for the life of me, I don't know how they do it. We have a pretty good routine on our end, but even still, when one of is away, life becomes a lot harder. The work load just increases and the things you took for granted are suddenly your responsibility. It's a good reminder of how parenting really is a team sport.
We missed mom but managed to survive because we had a pretty busy weekend, with A going to video camp, lots of hockey, and science day in the big city. Dinner time was rather somber because mom tends to lead the discussion, and without her we just of sat there and quietly ate. It was sort of lonely.
She came back last night and it was great to have her. No we're back to being a team, just the way we like it.
Until the next time, thanks for reading, and thanks to lilruby for the pic.
