A Few Days Alone

D spent a few days with his parents, leaving me and J by ourselves at the house. (Well, not completely. My sister — J’s Aunt S — came to stay with us!)

I was afraid life would be impossibly complicated without D here, but we actually managed just fine. I’m not sure I could handle single parenthood long-term, but I was pretty proud of myself for being able to keep J — and myself — fed and happy while D was gone. Grown-up meals are arguably the most difficult part of my day. I really rely on D’s help when I’m getting supper put together each night… so while he was away, I opted to either eat out or fix super simple meals.

But still, we both missed him a lot. J was obviously happy (albeit a bit confused and surprised) to see his Daddy when he got home on Wednesday — and, of course, I was thrilled to have my husband back! We’re a very tight-knit couple (now family).

I really have so much to be thankful for. I was so lucky to have gotten pregnant when I did (without really even trying…), had an incredibly easy pregnancy, a super quick labor & delivery, a perfectly healthy baby boy… All with D by my side, every step of the way. I feel so lucky to be married to my very best friend (ever!) and that J has such an awesome father to play with and look up to. If J turns out to be anything like his father, I will be one proud momma!
