While the Slice is away

I've written about single parenting a couple times before, tongue-in-cheek of course, because I know real single parents have it a billion times harder than I do.  In fact, I feel like I'm just getting a glimpse of what my med-school siblings have gone through.

Fortunately for me, Liam still sleeps about four hours a day between his two naps.  He also watches Word World (only one episode a day! I promise!) on Netflix, which gives me time to clean, fold laundry, cook, blog, read, and/or sleep if it's one of those days.

So far I've made deviled eggs, cream cheese brownies (but from scratch), and chocolate cake with this frosting.  I've also read a few of the Percy Jackson books, watched all the episodes of The Glee Project (Cameron!!!), fixed some of Slice's pants and slippers, and spent lots of time with family.

The day I was dreading the most was Sunday - namely, trying to keep my energetic class and my energetic toddler under control for two entire hours.  By the end of the block I had walked out of meetings 4 times, once because my baby was bleeding from the mouth after being hit in the face with a chair.

Ahhh.


This is some more of what we've been doing:

oh, great . . . now I HAVE to make frosting. Is it REALLY as good as I want it to be?
;)

It really is! I've been itching to make another cake just so I can make the frosting again ....
although I think I want to try it with a non-chocolate cake.
(This weekend??)

You do better than I do. Unless Ryan is home we rarely leave the house, even just go to outside... Ryan got a new job and in a couple weeks all I will have of him are weekends. I don't know what I'll do then. The kids and I will probably go crazy. I'm glad he got a promotion but I wish it was the same schedule. Good bye long vacations!
