popsicles and a little peace
June 23, 2011 § 2 Comments
I’m having one of those days…tired and feeling like the night couldn’t come any sooner. Pierre has been gone for five days now and having to entertain mr.T all on my own is starting to wear me out. Yesterday we had another great afternoon with friends at the beach, where mr.T enjoyed an entire popsicle. Needless to say, he was VERY quite and still as he sat on the beach, busily eating that frozen block of sugar, and I can’t help but wish that I had a freezer (we’ll have been without one for a year in August) today. A few minutes of silence would have done me wonders!
Like I’ve probably mentioned before, being on my own with my son reminds me of how lucky I am to have such a loving and supportive husband. It really does help to be part of a team while raising children. Of course, it’s not always possible for everyone (for millions of reasons) but I don’t believe that people were put on this planet to carry such an enormous responsibility on one pair of shoulders alone. Everyone needs help and everyone could use a break now and again.
A warm hug to all of the single parents out there.
Love and light,
