I was a temporarily single parent this weekend while B went out of town. Every year, we go camping with our friends in Eastern Washington, but I'm not ready to leave the Bambinos for 3.5 days yet.
Who am I kidding?!? I don't trust anyone enough to leave them for 3.5 days.
I encouraged him to go so I had a ton of time with my Bambinos. Saturday we went to the zoo!
We started out with Dippin Dots
it's only an hour. And conked out in the car on the way home.
It was fun to spend the time alone with the Bambinos and my sister doing something fun, but I was sure happy to see B when he got home yesterday afternoon.
The hardest part of being a temporarily single parent? I can't do whatever I want/need. There's no "Oh crap we need milk!" at 7pm and running to the store after the Bambinos are in bed. Instead, it's get them up in the morning and change their diaper, run to the store with them still in pajamas and you looking a hot mess as quickly as you can before they're completely starving and have a meltdown.
Yesterday when they were in bed? I took my time at Target.
