I haven't been posting lately because I usually do my posts in the morning and Dave has been called into the office early a lot this week.
Part-time single parenting is a lot of work. My hat's off to those who manage it full time.
One would think that it wouldn't make that big a difference. After all, Dave is still preparing the boys' lunches, which is his main contribution in the morning. But having only a single pair of hands and eyes means everything takes a little longer and the time rapidly vanishes.
The change has also left the boys stressed out and more inclined to snap at each other. So we've had more tantrums and fights than usual and those take time to resolve and get back to the rest of the work which needs to be done.
Hopefully this doesn't continue into next week.
