It has been a bit of an adjustment for all of us getting used to his new schedule that is not at all regular. Before, I felt like I was single parenting a lot of the time, but now JP is very involved in carting the kids around and doing things around the house on his days off.
There are still a few single parenting days, but we are managing fine, and they are fewer and further between than in the past. Friday was one of those days. Unfortunately, he missed J's ukulele debut at her Choral Cabaret fund raiser. She played the uke and sang with her friend, and did a wonderful job!
Yesterday he missed seeing L make a basket in her Basketball game. Only 5 team members showed up, so she played the entire game, although they pulled in another teammate's little sister to give a couple of the other girls breaks.
Totoro and friends join my family of other matryoshka dolls, which I find nearly irresistible.
Today JP is home, so we can sit around and watch the Olympics together as a family.
