Oh, this week.  This week has not been incredibly fun.  We've made it through six full days with Daddy gone and I'd be lying if I said it's been easy.  I am just really not cut out to do this single parenting thing.  Hats off to those of you who do it because it is HARD.

I've yelled more this week.

We've watched more TV than we should this week.

Tonight, I took the boys up to the restaurant I work at after supper.  We shared a chocolate malt AND dutch apple pie because Isaiah couldn't decide which he wanted.  I never pump them THAT full of sugar, but I usually work on Friday nights and I was missing seeing my friend Jodi.  Heck, I was missing seeing adults.

On the drive home, Isaiah said something that made me cry.

Isaiah:  Mommy?
Me:  Yes, baby?
Isaiah:  You know....we really love you a lot.
Me:  Awww, thanks sweetie.  I really love you guys too.
Isaiah:  Yeah.  We love you a lot.....but you need Daddy.  Daddy needs to come home 'cause you can't do it by yourself.

Can't argue with him there.

We make a good team, that hubby of mine and me.  And the boy is right.  I'm making it work, but I just can't be the best parent I can be without my teammate.
