Single Parenting Weekend





What a weekend. B was out of town from Thursday through Sunday evening and it was just me and a sick baby.

Which, let me tell you, was tiring. I have no idea how some people do this all the time!

Thank goodness he’s cute!

So, what did the two of us do this weekend?

Well, I tried nebulizing him a few times. TRIED is the key word. It’s not easy to get a 10-month-old boy to sit still long enough to put a mask on them and turn on a loud scary machine.

We took a few selfies. 

I ate ice cream/Halo Top from the carton after he was in bed.

I went for a run! I wasn’t sure this was going to happen, but B’s dad was able to babysit while Mary and I got in a 10 mile training run. We’re less than a month away from the Cleveland half marathon, so I feel pretty good about that run.

We baked! We went over to B’s parents’ house and did some baking for his sister’s wedding weekend. 

Sunday morning FW woke up around 4:50 a.m. and decided he was cranky and didn’t want to do anything but be held by me. And for the most part, be held while I was standing, not sitting. So, our plans to take a walk didn’t exactly happen. We did make it out of the house in the afternoon for Ladies Craft Beer Society! I didn’t get any pictures of the craft OR the beer because this little guy was cranky and barely let me put him down. Here is a one pic of when I was able to put him down and he hung out for about 3 seconds with Clara. (unpictured-  me chugging my beer at that exact moment)

Sunday evening we finally did get in a walk – to the grocery store – when B came home. And then we ate dinner and I passed out. Again, pooped!

Some questions for you:

  • Do you ever end the weekend more tired than when you started?
  • Do you wake up early on weekends?

Iโ€™m linking up with Katie and the weekly wraps.

  1. I have two kids, aged 3 and 5, so yes, there are several Mondays when I get to work and just feel like I am a walking zombie! Today is kind of one of them! ๐Ÿ™‚ Especially when hubby is away – not fun. But sounds like you did really well and I am glad you squeezed in that run. Those macarrons look AMAZING! Hope you have a great week x

  2. You survived the weekend! That’s a victory in itself. I can remember how tiring two sick little ones were. It was rare my husband was gone, thankfully. Great job on the 10 miler. I didn’t realize you had a half marathon a month away! Good luck! Thanks for linking, Melissa!

  3. Hey, you made it! Going it alone with a sick little one is tough business… and, poor guy, the nebulizer probably was scary. Like a Darth Vader mask? ๐Ÿ˜‰ When my husband is gone, I tell him it feels like that “Ground Hog Day” movie when the same exhausting things happen over and over again. And kiddos just don’t care if it’s the weekend or week day! They’re up at the crack of done regardless ๐Ÿ™‚

    Keep up your training and good luck in your upcoming race!
