Week 17: Going Solo

Week 17: 12/09/12 - 12/15/12

Oh my goodness, have I gained a ton of respect for single moms out there. 

I can't imagine. 

I was solo for the week.
Gabe was out of town for work.

Boy.oh.boy. What a week.
I was sick.
Lyla stopped sleeping. 
I got an average of 3-4 hours of sleep every night. 
I had three early morning meetings before school.
And the daily tasks continued to pile.

Thank the good Lord for my amazing Mother-in-Law. 
Couldn't have done it without her. 
She came and got Lyla every morning and even did some laundry for me.
She's a saint.

But things sure are easier when Gabe is here. 

Like the night Lyla woke up from a dead sleep. 
Hadn't heard those lungs in weeks. 

She had peed all over herself.
And she was freezing.
What a fiasco getting her changed in the middle of the night.
She was not happy. 

Neither was I. 

But those little things don't seem so stressful when Gabe is here. 

But by Wednesday, we had our little routine down.
I was feeling better.
And she started sleeping through the night again.

She just had to get my anti-biotics out of her little system. 

In fact, we're on night number 4 of sleeping through the night again.


It's amazing how different I feel when I get a good night's sleep. 

And now Daddy is back.

So life is good again. 

He's a big ol' sweetheart.

I think I hear him packing my lunch now...
