Tweet Hubs is away on business so Little Bit are fending for ourselves for a while. Things have been humming along until disaster struck this afternoon. Little Bit and I had gone out to pick up some rolls for the meal ministry on Monday and we scooted by Aldi for a few things.
I had let Little Bit sleep in the car and read my Kindle while he finished up his nap before we got out at the bread store. I figured he would be wound tight for several more hours at least. Our trip home takes about 20-30 minutes depending on traffic. When we got home I looked in the backseat and Little Bit was awake. Score! Nap this afternoon.
Either he slept a little or it is more of this transitioning to one nap nonsense because he so didn't take an afternoon nap. He happily played in his crib for an hour before I busted him out.
In my infinite parenting wisdom I though I would delay dinner by thirty minutes and scoot him straight into bed afterward. Dinner was in the oven and the wailing began. Not the crying you can ignore. Nope, full on wailing. For an hour. I even tried to feed him crunchies for dinner because the stuff in the oven was no where near ready. Nope. I put my Little Bit to bed with no dinner. I hereby award myself the crappy parent of the year trophy. It's so hard doing this job alone. I salute all those single parents out there. I don't know how you do it and frankly I don't care to find out. Hubs I know your read this so get your backside on the next flight home! Momma and Little Bit are struggling without you!
