This semester, I rarely look forward to tuesday nights because Aaron has class until 10pm. That means I do dinner, bath, and bed with both kids by myself and I don't get the nice break I do when Aaron's home. By the time tuesday afternoon rolls around again, I'm grumbly and impatient just thinking about the treacherous near-future.
I don't know if I want to admit this because I might jinx the whole situation (not that I really believe in jinxing), but in reality every tuesday night goes marvelously well! Tonight for instance, Basil fell asleep in a record 15 minutes while Juliana sung contentedly to herself in the living room. She nursed to sleep shortly after Basil did. The dishes were washed and I even read a bit!
Thank God for his merciful kindness...and don't be such a baby.
