snapshots of single parenthood

It’s hard to believe, but Ryan’s already been gone (only) two weeks…but we have less than 3 weeks to go, thankfully! It’s been hard doing this solo parenting thing. I’m not going to lie. I love my son more than life itself, but oh my gosh, he can drive me batty. He also seems to have developed an aversion to sleep the past week or so. What do I mean by that? We’re talking 5-6 wake-ups a night. The plus side of all of this is that I’m learning that I am capable of doing this solo…as much as I don’t want to. And, heck, this little boy is a mama’s boy through and through now. Sorry, Ryan! 

We’ve learned that we can go to the park and take selfies together:

We can go to church – on time – and take selfies for Daddy before we go:

We can go swimming in the lake together:

We can watch the storms roll in and enjoy the crazy clouds and wind:

We can watch the kitty and plot our epic takeover of her domain:

We can learn to crawl while Mommy’s not looking and spill her coffee all over the floor:

And then, once the bubs goes to sleep, Momma can enjoy the sunset with a little peace and quiet 🙂
