Dude. Being a single parent is hard. And I took the easy way out.
No, the husband didn't walk out. He went on a mancation to Vegas for a few days leaving me to fend for myself with Peanut. Instead of leaving her at the babysitter's for 10-plus hours a day, I took two days off work so we could hang out.
So, no working, just me and the kid and I'm exhausted. Did I mention I went to my parents' house for a couple days too?
I know. I'm a wuss.
We've been going non-stop the past couple days. Play dates, lunch dates, shopping. Peanut has caught two out of the three naps in the car leaving me with little downtime. She's also in that phase where she's whiny and wants everything her way. She's very particular to boot.
It made me realize two things: Single parents are my heroes and my husband is invaluable in so many ways.
I did eventually get a break when my parents kept Peanut overnight so I could have a girls night out - something I haven't done since Peanut was an infant.
And now the husband is home and being extra helpful. All is well and we all survived.
How was your weekend?
