I’m not sure why it is, but in the past, I’ve had a very nervous feeling about caring for Eli by myself. This was so much more present when he was an infant and barely walking. The bottom line is that he’s my child, and I will take care of him. However, I’ve always doubted my ability, and question if I’m doing the right things.
He’s 3 now, and I’ve never been the only parent with him over night by myself. Jay’s always come home at the end of the day. Well, this weekend changed that. Jay went away for a weekend and I had Eli all to myself. Let me tell ya how it ended… we survived!
I guess I’m just more comfortable with a three year old than I am an infant. Maybe it’s because I had our days packed with stuff to do. I’m still not sure. But, the bottom line, is that we made it. My confidence with Eli has grown a lot, and I realized (again) how much Jay and I really do team parent. It helps that Eli’s a fairly good kid too. 🙂
