I’m 23 weeks along and nursing a crappy cold-hacking-cough. On Thursday, Mr. P is off to Baltimore at the crack of dawn for a work trip. 2 hours away and for only 2 days, how bad can it get?
Well, here’s how my day looks / will look…
6am: Out of bed and into the shower
6.20am: Get C’s breakfast and an afternoon snack for school ready.
6.35am: Wake C up, get her dressed and ready for school
6.55am: Out the door to school
7.05am: In school, set up her breakfast, sit with her for a while.
7.15am: Catch the bus to work
7.35am-6.30pm: NONSTOP work with maybe a 10 min break to pick up lunch. We all eat at the desk, no such thing as lunch out or whatnot.
7-7.15pm: Finally home but no rest for the weary. Time to get dinner ready for C and I; eat and clean up after
8.30pm: C is off for a shower.
8.45pm-9.30pm: Bedtime routine. I’ll usually conk out with her or before her (sometimes I have to stop our conversations because I’m so tired that I’m dozing off; this girl can really talk).
Rinse and repeat.
This is how actual solo parenting looks like; there is ZERO help. Solo = ONE / MOI.
+ being pregnant
+ being sick
+ demanding job
Would anyone care to swap?
