K's first full day alone with JB

Jelly Bean's daycare is closed this week, but I still have to work.  Therefore, Jelly Bean is at home with K....all.....day.  K has never even taken JB to the store by herself let alone have her for an entire day.  I left a little schedule of approximate nap and feeding times.  K was going to run a bunch of errands today but considering there is 8-12 inches of snow in our front yard I seriously doubt they are going anywhere. 

K keeps telling people I'm happy that she has a day alone with JB because I want her experience what I go through but she has it wrong.  I don't really care if she ever knows how hard it is being a single parent.  Rather, I care that she knows what is like to do that mother/child dance for a day.  The one where you're so in tune with your child it's like they are your other half.  The one where your laughs and your LOs laughs combine as one. The one where her smile becomes contagious and her tears are your tears. 

JB loves K sooo much.  Even though K hasn't been around JB knows her.  She smiles for her in a way that is reserved only for K.  So no, I don't want K to struggle through today, rather I want her to enjoy every moment (although I will smile my own secret smile if JB happens to have a blow out or something - lol!) 

Now to keep track of how many times K calls.....so far it's 11am and the count is 1. :-p

  • This post made me a little teary eyed!  Where is K normally?  I saw you were picking her up and she had been gone for a while - I can't imagine how hard that is... I miss Kerri after 8 hours of work.. ug.. I can't imagine weeks at a time!  and with a baby!?  It is wonderful she is home with you for the holidays.  I hope you get some quality time together.

    She has been away for five months training for a new job.  She's flown home several times and was here for Thanksgiving, but of course it's never enough time.  This trip we have a whole 10 days! woo-hoo :-)
