From Bean to Sprout

Preparing For Single Life February 23, 2012

In just under a week, Chris is going to Germany for a week to drive around in a Porsche with his dad. I’m a little nervous about taking care of Henry on my own. Chris is a great dad and super involved with Henry so it’s going to be hard. I’m also going to really miss him. The last time we were apart was when I went to Haiti for a month in 2010.

I was worried about how long Henry would be at daycare during the day but I got some great offers from family to pick Henry up in the afternoon so he’s not spending 9 hours there. My mom plans on picking up Henry every 2nd week to spend an afternoon with him and that happens to start next Wednesday so that worked out well. Chris’ family offered to help out and pick him up on the Thursday and Friday. We’re still working out the details for that one since Chris has to figure out a way to leave his car at home so people can use it to pick him up. I’ve also decided to take the following Monday and Tuesday off to hang out with my little man (I have two days that I have to use up before the end of fiscal year or I lose them).

Anyways, I’m hoping Henry cooperates during that time.

In other news, I’ve been super tired for the past few days. I’ve been on course since Wednesday and it’s from 8:30 to 4:30 each day. By the time I get home at night, it’s almost 6pm. It makes for long days when your kid wakes you up at 4:30. I also don’t get to spend as much time with Henry which kind of saddens me. I’ll just have to remember how much I’ve missed him in the past few days when I’m dealing with him alone next weekend 🙂
