About a week and half ago, my wife and daughter went to Iowa to help out my mother-in-law who had surgery (she was diagnosed with breast cancer, discovered early, so she had a mastectomy). That left me and Mini-me (17 month old Noah) on our own for about 5 days. Call me Mr. Mom! And the return of the couch potato! (Didn't get to the gym at all, and too cold to run with Noah.....) Well, not really according to Noah, he prefers the real Mommy lol. He's at the stage where he wants Mama all the time, Dad, not so much. He didn't realize they were gone really until Friday (they left on Wed) and he went to the bedrooms and was just looking to see where they were. Not finding them he would toddle over to me and make a whahaha?!?!? and point to the empty rooms. Seeing Mama on Skype made him happy so did having spaghetti for supper:
|I got spaghetti in my belly...face...hands...hair...everywhere!|
|On your Mark, Get set.....GO!|
|They tasted even better than they looked!|
Noah agreed too he got to eat one! The bake sale at work was a success, we ended up making $363.50. Grand total for my Team is $1948! Proud to say that my Team is in the #1 spot for funds raised.
So that was a great achievement a week ago from today, and also Maria and Emma came home! The house wasn't a mess, I had done the laundry, the only thing that I hadn't got while they were gone was sleep. Noah didn't like Mama being gone and didn't sleep thru the night the whole time they were gone. Needless to say very happy to see Mama again!
Ok that brings me to Part 2 which will be posted tomorrow, more running/swimming/biking hilarity I promise!
