Dad's Coming Home

This week the kids and I have been "home alone". Bruce has been at church camp since Sunday night so we are anxiously awaiting his arrival back home fact so much, that we may actually drive up to the church and sit in the parking lot until he arrives!

We did pretty good. Well, that is, until I saw how many dead fish we have in our pond. When Savannah asked what we should do I responded with all the class of a true Southern lady and said, "Let's let your dad take care of that when he gets home". Gross.

Savannah cried herself to sleep on Tuesday night. That was a bit disheartening....especially when I asked her if she cried when I went to ATL earlier this year and her quick response was...NO! That figures....:)

Tucker and I had a date night after church Wednesday night....McDonald's and Hostess Ding would have been nice if he had stayed awake...but by 8:40 he was fast asleep in my lap! Did I also mention that he peed on me in bed on Monday night. Nice.

My in laws helped me out two days this week. Bless them. Monday I got to spend some quality time and a large quantity of money supporting Mardel's. I love that place. Yesterday I spend a little time in my classroom trying to wrap my mind around everything.

Needless to say, we are ready for Dad to come home. Moms who do this alone all the time, deserve free medication and an award. My hat is off to them!

Welcome home dad....I might get to use the bathroom alone at some point today! Yippee!

I remember those days when my kids were small. My husband worked long, long hours and i was there with them alone alot. It is a very hard thing to do. Your blog is hilarious! Enjoy your free time in the potty and be sure to bring a book.

I feel your pain when it comes to dad's being gone. I look forward to it more than the kids do and really do applaud all those women that can do this with ease. I for one, am not one of them.

Wanted to wish you a great weekend!
