On Monday, Mr.SM hopefully wrote his last exam. This is a HUGE relief as I will no longer feel like I am alone in the whole running the house and taking care of the boy department. I know that previous statement isn't entirely fair as despite being school, working full-time and helping out the family business, Mr.SM has been very good about keeping up with the housework as well. He cleans up after supper, does all the laundry and cleans the bathroom. But he was very rarely home. He wouldn't arrive home from work until after 7pm and then would eat, clean and hit the books as I gave the monkey his bath and put him to bed. On the weekends, he would spend some time in the morning and evenings with the monkey, but during the day it was either off to study or off to work for his family. Needless to say, it was hard both physically and emotionally on both of us. It is not easy being on your own with a kid. All. The. Time. Its especially hard when talking to your partner about it is difficult because he is already feeling extremely guilty for his lack of ability to be involved with the boy or you.
But that is all over and tomorrow we're heading off for an extended weekend. Some quality family time. It will be good.
See you all on Monday
