This entire week, I'm home alone with my girls. I'm totally fine with it and things have gone remarkably smooth until yesterday happened. The day started out great with a trip to the museum… and then it quickly got worse.
The 3 year old missed her daddy and got very upset when I told her that she was wrong, he would not be coming home tomorrow. You know the day is not going to get any better when you start seriously arguing with a 3 year… and it looks like your losing.
Then the nearly 1 year old wouldn't leave my side like a monkey attached to the back of it's momma. Normally, I would mind her clingy tendencies, but things change a bit when your significant other isn't home to help with dinner or cleaning up.
The day ended with me attempting to put the baby down 3 times before she finally settled down in her crib. Oh, and the toddler. The toddler. Without warning, she burst into tears at dinner because I gave her yogurt. I thought it would be a nice treat, but it was daddy's yogurt and she suddenly remembered that he wasn't home.
You may be wondering why I'm a single parent this week - Well, my husband is away at some fancy resort for a conference. Or so he says. I'm a bit skeptical because all he has talked about so far has been all of the fancy restaurant food he is eating. You know, the type of restaurants where you don't dare take kids.
This got me thinking - Where's the conference for stay at home moms? Sure, I could plan a trip, but I'd have to pay for that myself. I'm going to need a conference where I can get my hotel + meals funded fully. There's a grant for this type of thing, right? All of the stay at home moms could travel to some fancy resort to learn about being a stay at home mom during the day and sleep a full 8 hours at night + eat a meal without being rushed + shower in peace. Please tell me that this dream conference exists.
If not, I'll have to plan it during my free time. Haha. Free time. We'll have lots of that during my conference. Who's with me?
