Last week I had to be a single parent for a week and I want to give a big shout out to those who already do it – boy it’s full on. My husband was away for work in another country so not even contactable with time differences and all of my regular baby sitting support were either away, sick or working themselves. It was the first week of school holidays and i also had to work myself as it was booked a long time ago. I survied the week but super tired by the end of it and sure was glad when hubby arrived home. I know that they saying being a single parent is hard work and I agree there is noone to give you a break when you want to go and do things above and beyond to have any form of a social life after hours or on the weekends if you can’t get a baby sitter. So hats off to you. Although being a parented parent we too get very little time alone as you use the other parent to help when the other has commitments so we too don’t get a lot of weekends off but still doing everything with only two hands from sun up to sun down – exhausting!
