Summer Hat


i don't know how single mothers do it. i do about ninety percent of the childcare. i don't do 100 percent because i can't. for example, yesterday i was operating on about two hours of sleep. i had tried to nap from 3:30 to 5 when margaret did, but every time i started to drop off she started with the enh enh enh noises that i can not sleep through. when Warren got home at seven i could no longer walk straight. i handed him the baby and went to bed. he didn't say anything about just having gotten home from work. what he did was make me dinner and watch the baby until 1am, when hewent to bed. he even got her to take an ounce of milk from a bottle. when she woke just after 2 i was actually happy to spend time with her, something i doubt would have been the case if i had not had a break. its good to know someone has my back.
