Single Parenting

DH is attending his sister's wedding. I am on my own with all 6 kids. It's not bad. I just lower the standards by which things are done. For instance, tonight we had hot chocolate and toast for dinner. Everyone was happy. I didn't have to cook and the dishes were easy.

I am sure I will run into some more attitude from #1 (he already is in hot water-his dish duty has not been recinded, nor will it be any time soon, to his dismay) and more messes from #6 (she was flinging popcorn all over the living room tonight and crushing the paper bowls from which she was flinging it from). Normal life around here but with no one to sleep with or get a back scratch from.

Oh, have I ever told you how much I love my dear husband?
