Mama needs a drink…
Since the separation/divorce, landisdad and I have had a mostly 50% custody split. Most of the time, we work out the weekends in six month chunks, but the weekdays are usually done just a week or so in advance–and need to balance kid school schedules, various athletic events or performances, and the hectic worklives that he and I both have.
Generally, we have a pretty easy time figuring it out, which is good.
This summer, landisdad and his mom took the kids on vacation for two solid weeks, which meant that I ended up with one week each in July and August.
I just got off the August week. Whoof. 10 days of single parenting and mama needs a drink (or many).
My hat is totally off to those of you who do this all year round!
