....Things take longer with only one parent. Like bedtime. Normally, David will put Callie down while I start the boys with jammies, teeth, etc. or vice versa. When there's only one of you, everything just takes longer.
...Jacob had a hard day yesterday with self-control. And every time he'd get in trouble, he'd just cry and cry for Daddy. It broke my heart. He's had a harder first few days than Josiah. He's my physical touch boy - just like his daddy. He's missing his "physical" presence - missing rough-housing, missing sitting in his lap, etc. I can hardly type it without crying. The last thing he asked me last night before going to bed was "how many more sleeps until we get to see Daddy?"
...One less person to do laundry for is ONE good thing about this whole bit!!
So we're doing okay. I'm SO thankful that this week is a short one. We'll head down to SC this weekend to spend Easter with David and be there for his first Sunday. Then we're planning on spending some of Spring Break with my Mom. I'm SO happy for the distraction and the BREAK for me. It will help the kids (but probably me, more!) tremendously.
One good thing is that we've had several showings on the house this week with realtors. We had some people come by this afternoon (which meant I had to wake up kids early from naps to leave...grr...) that ended up coming by AGAIN tonight to take a second look, so that was positive. Just trying to remain patient!! But it did make me smile when they complimented me on how nice and clean my house was! At least something is under control for the moment! :)
I've been working on finishing up David's meals to take down to him this weekend. I sent him with 4 or 5 of them last week, and told him I'd bring the rest when we come down for Easter. He picked about 15 meals that he'd like to have in his freezer, so it's been helpful for me to feel like I'm doing something to help support him!
