It's all good. He came home last night after having been in China (or according to the bird "The China") for the past 18 days. Yep, I was a single (warrior) mom for 18 days and nights. I wanted to tell you about it, but I have a couple friends who would've freaked out if I told the world I was home alone!!
I was nervous. 18 days is a long time. Most people know I have no family here. No "hi mom, I'm gonna drop the bird off for the
week day afternoon hour so I can get a mani/pedi meditate shower by myself grocery shop scream at the top of my lungs breathe." I have a couple babysitters who help mostly on a weekend night when Greg and I go out, but also on nights when I have meetings for the WAY too many boards of directors and committees I sit on. I did, however, treat myself to these babysitters a few nights over the past 2 1/2 weeks so that I could spend time with some good friends. I needed that.
I did it. I did it all by myself. For 18 days. I didn't know if I could because it's a lot of freaking work. During this time, Little Bird went through a period of die-off from the vancomycin and nystatin she's on which affects her behavior in an ugly, whiny way. It wasn't easy and it wasn't pretty, but I made it. I'm awesome. Yep, I said it. It's true.
I am warrior mama. Hear me roar.
