I don't know HOW you do it. DH was gone this week and it was so hard without him. I work full time and DH does the morning routine (getting her up, fed, dressed, and to daycare). Having to do it alllll on my own was hectic!
I'm glad he's back.
DH has been at work since 7 am and I'm so tired I could cry. The house is a mess, there are a ton of dishes to be done...and I'm just sitting her bumping.
Single moms are seriously bionic for doing it all.
I could not imagine.
The other night, C woke up with a temp of 104.4. I immediately told DH to start the bath. He did that while I stripped C down and gave him some ibuprofen. We are so in sync with things. A couple hours later, I was just lying in bed thinking of going through scary times like this without him. I don't know if I could handle it.
When it's all you know, it's not so bad.
I've been single since day 1, and the idea of having someone else to take over anything (baths, middle of the night, meals, getting dressed) is so beyond my level of comprehension. I just can't imagine saying "hey, take care of..." it's just not something I can even think about. I swear, if I had someone else doing it with me I would just feel like there's nothing for them to do, because I've got it.
All of you could do it too. It's good to be thankful for what your SO does, because I have no doubt that it makes it easier. But if you had to do it, you wouldn't think twice about it.

I don't know how single moms and SAHMs do it. My DH works far from home and stays at work for three days some weeks and five days other weeks. I work and taking care of DD is so tough sometimes. I get so exhausted, especially now that I'm pregnant. So I give single moms and SAHMs so much credit, I don't know how they do it.
hopkins5:SO works three hours away so he stays in the city from Monday to Friday. There are days when I'm counting down the seconds until he gets home. It's HARD doing it on your own! I'm a SAHM and full time student. Single mamas are superhuman.
This is me. Except I work PT, 2 nights a week. Seriously, single moms amaze me!!! By Friday, I can't wait for DH to arrive!
