Five days of single parenthood and I’m still among the living. I do not know how single mamas and dads do this around the clock. They are blessed with extra patience and courage for sure.
Now, why did Dominic go on a vacation without me, you ask?
Well, it’s quite simple. Last Fall, when the college basketball schedule came out we discovered that the Kansas Jayhawks were playing Texas Tech this January. Dominic’s brother lives in Texas so plans were made for Dominic and his bro to have a guy’s weekend surrounding the big game.
Last Wednesday, we stayed up until midnight getting him packed. I told Dom a bazillion times to not leave packing to the last minute. But he did. And now, he swears that he’ll always follow my travel advice in the future. He’s so smart. As we zipped his suitcase I made him practice his “I’m posing with a KU player and/or Bill Self” smile. He rocked it and then, KU rocked it on Saturday because that’s how they do. And Dominic met a whole bunch of rad guys. And he smiled, which makes me smile.
While he was gone, after the munchkins were in bed, I had some extra time to catch up on my blog reading … here’s a list of my favorite links. Don’t miss out on them, they’re fab if I don’t say so myself.
I’m gonna go out on a limb and give elderberry zinc the credit for keeping croup isolated to Max. I gave Jem some in mango juice a few times each day this last week and she has stayed healthy, Praise the Lord!
