Vacation week minus the children

That may sound appealing to most. 
My three youngest are at their dad's for the week.
I miss them.
Yes, I've gone out with my boyfriend.
Yes, I met a long time friend for lunch.
Yes, I went to a Zumba class. (again!!)
I took the two oldest that live at home to a movie. (The Vow-- don't waste your time)
I worked on Saturday without worrying about childcare.
Yes, my house stays clean when I clean it.
I still miss them.
But I guarantee the second they walk back in the house on Friday night I'll be wishing the quiet was back.

Being a Single Parent is_________

Being a single parent is

 often easier without drunk, cheating superdad around.

kind of fun since you don't have to ask another adult to accept an invitation

easy if the superdad would just go the frick away

just what I had been doing before when superdad lived here but at least now I don't
get pissed off when he won't help.

like walking a tightrope.... trying to get everything done without superdad calling the child services to
report me for ____________  (insert whatever made up story you want)

rewarding  (when the kids grow up and realize all you've done for them).

EXHAUSTING  but I wouldn't have it any other way.
