Training Day (Week)

I have to go on a week's executive training for my job. All day today, I was looking forward to it - all that time away from everyday work problems and a chance to think about my (ahem) career.

But just getting out of the office today seemed to take forever. I was more than two hours late and my poor Big Dude had our Little Dude almost all day and looked knackered when I got home. How will he cope for all that time? And I feel faint just thinking about all the laundry piling up...

I swear, I just don't know how mothers that work full time do it. They must have nerves of steel.

Note to self: Show great respect to all working mothers and ask them how they do it.

It isn't easy, even when you're a mom that is home. I have filled in for my wife when I send her away with her sisters for a break, and I'm not sure how *anyone* does it.

He'll cope, though- may not get to the laundry, but your two dudes will adjust what they have to, to get by- and greet you with extreme gratitude, when you return!

I have a million kids and work full time. But I am very lucky that my husband helps out with so much in the house.

However, it would be very nice to have a day or two with the kids at school and without having to go to work. Imagine what one could do?

I am sure Big Dude will be fine whilst you are away. And the washing can wait Emily! It will still be there tomorrow.

Try to enjoy the training, i.e. don't fall asleep during the classes. The guys will survive and learn to appreicate you even more while you're gone.

I don't do it LOL. Most of my day is about what I didn't get done not what I did :) I am sure you have it all under control much better than you think.

I think it's just something that happens - it's those things in life that we just do - hell, I look back and I don't even know how I did it!

I look back now and wonder how I ever managed to get through the years while my kids were growing up. The only thing I can come up with is that I was young. A friend of mine is about my age (44) and has a one year old. I can't imagine having to start all over again.
