My hat goes off to single mom’s. Really. I don’t know how they do it.
Last week, Luvy was traveling for work. That meant Baby D and I were left to fend for ourselves.
I love my baby boy, but it was tough. We don’t have any family here, so it made finding a sitter, taking him to the sitter, picking him up, getting dinner, baths, and all the stuff in between hectic.
Thankfully, I have an amazing friend who offered to keep Baby D for me so I didn’t have to drive 45 minutes away to our normal sitter, which is at Luvy’s work. What a God sent!
We tried to plan some fun activities while Luvy was gone to get out of the house and help the time go faster.
Baby D loves going to Costco and people watching… much like his mama. We also found him a Halloween costume! Cutest thing ever!
Plus, we had a date with Miss Clare!
Baby D loves her, and for good reason! She is great with him. We did some mall walking, consignment shopping, and coffee drinking. As long as we were on the go, Baby D was content.
Although it was exhausting without Luvy here this week, it gave me such a renewed appreciation for all he does do when he is here. I’m telling you, you don’t realize how much your spouse does until they aren’t there to do it! That extra set of hands and eyes are so helpful, especially for a curious and fast little boy.
Needless to say, we were both thrilled when Luvy came through the door Saturday night.
We celebrated by going to pick out Baby D’s first pumpkin and relaxing.
He was too interested in people watching to smile for the camera. (again.. like his mama…)
I think Baby D is much more relaxed when all three of us are at home together.
Luvy, thank you for all you do! You are a great dad and husband. PS.. never leave again.
Whether it is your spouse, parent, sibling, or roommate… go tell someone how much they mean to you and how much you appreciate what they do today!
