A shout out to single parents

So, Backpacking dad is out of town this week, so I am solo mommy until Sunday.

Wake up. Bottle. Get me ready. Get her ready. Get her breakfast ready. Get stuff ready for daycare. Drop her off at daycare (with attendant crying). Work all day. Pick up. Bring back to office because everytime she is in the backup daycare, I can't seem to finish what I have to do before it is time to pick her up. Go home. "Make" dinner. Bath. Bottle. Sing songs. Get her to bed. Clean kitchen. Work more. Get me to bed.

Rinse. Repeat.

I have so much respect for single parents, I truly wonder how they do it.

I also wonder when Scott Baio is going to get here.

I feel I have to say that, because if Scott Baio showed up around here, I'd take it as a sign the end of the world was approaching!

My husband travels overnight several days a week. It's exhausting. I suppose it is for him, too, but moreso for me. So yep, serious props to people who do the single parent thing full time!
