My Single-Mommyhood Week…

Last week, Matt was out of town from Sunday-Friday! And, even though I was so thankful that he was able to be camp pastor at a youth camp in Wichita Falls, I was SUPER sad that he was away from us for so long! … In one hand, I’ll have to admit that having him gone was a little bit fun! Just me and the babes…doin’ our own thing! … But, over my happiness was definitely sadness and EXHAUSTION! Doing EVERYTHING for that long is so very tiring!! I don’t know how you Mommas with traveling husbands/single Mommas do it! I salute you!

But, with much patience and love, we all survived! We ate out a BUNCH and did things everyday to get us out of the house! Quinn even got to sleep in our BIG bed for the first time EVER! He LOVED it and did so great “protecting Momma!”

It’s times like these that I am reminded of how blessed I am to have such good little guys! How I love them!!!

And, Daddy missed us TONS! But, as the week went on, the videos he sent us got MORE AND MORE crazy! We were a little concerned that the heat was getting to him! :) Nash and Quinn both “hoo-rahed” when they saw him talking to them! What a good {and super silly} Daddy they have! Check out a few of the silliness that came our way…

aww, what a sweet hubby you have. I completely get what you mean about "doing your own thing" when Daddy is away. My husband is a high school football coach. During his season we get into our own little routine without him around. This will be my first season as a mommy of two. I'm super nervous about it, but know that God will bring us through it(and we'll enjoy it more than I can foresee now).
