EVERYONE GETS SICK!
Jacob's first trip after Cora's birth: He departs for the airport at 4am, leaving me in the bathroom with Jack who is heaving over the toilet. 6 week old Cora wakes up soon thereafter, so we just go ahead and start the day.
October 2013 trip: Jack gets an intense and messy stomach bug. It hits me next. Jack, meanwhile, has recovered, leaving me alone and barely functioning with two high energy children on my hands.
Last week's trip: Cora's cold turns into a fever which turns into an ear infection, turning her into an unable to sleep, distraught mess. I have the same cold, fever, and a splitting headache.
I'm sensing a trend. Note to husband: You will never be allowed to leave again.
For my own confidence levels and for Jack's and Cora's sake, I'd like to prove to myself that I can rock the solo parenting gig.
There were some bright spots last week. Since Cora was passing out by 6pm each night, Jack and I had some very sweet time together and worked on several art projects. He really likes to fully take part and I'm seeing that he's actually more capable than I give him credit for. He loves himself some scissors, so I traced shapes for him to cut out.

SO HAPPY to see this guy!
