So sleepy tonight. I realized how much work being a pretty much single parent is going to be. When Hubby brought the kids home tonight, and bolted out the door, I became a bit jealous of the fact that he is going to get so much more alone time than I will, and this has always been an issue. That being said, I don't want it the other way around. I did remind him tonight that Wednesday night's are his nights with the kids.
It's just that I am a softy. I'm sitting here listening to the wailing of my son, yelling "mommy....mommy..." Because I still haven't gotten his room all the way set up, and he is in my bed. He thinks I need to go to bed with him. I am even tired, but I don't want to cave in and go up there while he is wailing. I know it's a phase, I know it needs to stop, and I will have his room done this weekend (I hope), but it's hard, because he is the clingy one of the two kids anyway. He's clingy and emotional. He pulls at my strings....and it's all I can do not to give in ALL the time. I also realize he is having to go through a terrible change for a young child, but I do think he is doing OK....
The kids did enjoy their time with their dad, but I know they were glad to get home with me last night, and they were only gone one night. What am I going to do when it's two nights?
It's cool tonight, and I'm hearing the song of my wind chime out my door. How I love this sound. It reminds me of being a little girl, listening to the twinkling sounds of the glass wind
chimes my mother had hanging all over our porch in the desert.
