Troy is in New York for ten days on a business trip which has left me to conquer life as a single mom. I definitely haven’t been bored with all of the projects I have been working on, but I am a little lonesome. Evenings are the worst without my buddy to hang out with. When Blake wakes up from his late afternoon nap, I think, how can entertain him for the next three hours till he goes to bed? I am used to Troy coming home during that time. Blake and I have stayed busy with a lot of friends which has helped pass the time. I know I am a big lonely wuss. Some of my friend’s husbands have been gone for months at a time for internships or military service, but I still miss my man.
We got together with some of my friends from Michigan that I grew up with. Coincidentally, all three of our moms got together the same day for lunch back home.
Thad and Blake.
Trying to get a picture of Thad, Kylie, and Blake while they were happy was impossible.
I volunteered to watch all three babies while Kourtni and Alyssa were occupied with something else. I was pretty confident that I could handle it, until two babies were crying at the same time. I already had one baby in my arms, and no more arms to help the other one! I don’t know how moms with triplets do it (or twins for that matter).
My friend Kristen came over and we had a girls’ night. We watched movies that Troy wouldn’t be caught dead watching and worked on scrapbooking projects. She also practiced a shiatsu massage on me because she had to demonstrate it the next day for her students at the massage school. I felt so spoiled.
I also had a true idiot mom moment. I guess I didn’t realize that Blake is clearly too big for his infant tub. I was just in the habit of always giving him his bath there, and I never noticed that he outgrew it. Kristen about died laughing, and said, “I’ve never seen a baby that big in one of those tubs before!”
Needless to say, we transitioned to the real tub and it fits Blake much better.
