Most nights, I get home from work with about an hour to spend with Sweetie before she falls to pieces, ready to be tucked into bed. Most nights all I can bear to do after she goes to bed is watch TV until I fall asleep. 4 days a week, for the past 5 months.
Working full time and a single Mom has it drawbacks. Like the fact that other than car time I see my daughter for about 1-2 hours on work days (which is 4 days a week). And we spend plenty of time in the car. 1 1/2 hours on a no traffic day and easily 2+ hours a day on a busy traffic/snow/craziness day. Too much.
Yet, most nights, there is a sweet spot in the day. The moment when Sweetie is in clean pj's, full tummy, teeth brushed where she just snuggles in. That I wouldn't trade for anything.
So - next time we have a sweet spot (like tonight) or I feel like I have energy to type something more than... "OH so tired..." I am thinking up some blog posts - is't been too long folks.
