I don't know how you do it. Especially those of you that work as well! Holy cow- yall are super women. DH is working on a project that has him travelling internationally once a month for the past few mos. He's been in Tokyo since last Thursday. We've been ok (thankfully my saint of a mother came up to help me this weekend) but I think it caught up to the kids last night. Sophie just would not go to sleep so I had to let her CIO while I put Gavin to bed. He asked why she was crying and I made the mistake of saying that she missed Daddy- he normally does her bedtime routine and she was crying his name :-(. It must have reminded him that Daddy was gone and then HE burst into tears as well. O...M...G... and there was no wine in the house for me! The house is a total wreck... thankfully I'm teleworking today and only doing a half day while they are at school so I can put this place back together! DH comes home tomorrow and not a second too soon. Anyway... I just thought that I should give you travel widows a shout out. You rock!
