all by myself

Well, the fun is over.
All the grandmas are gone.
Sir O is stuck with just me again, and he finds my company lacking.
Despite his unwillingness to talk to them (or anybody really) on the phone, he misses them terribly. This is evidenced by the constant question "gama? where's gama?" for hours/days after their departure. (Accompanied by a thorough search of the apartment.)

And I have nobody to hold the Captain to help me keep him safe from Sir O, and nobody to attempt adult conversation with during the day. The dishes aren't magically doing themselves anymore either. Bummer.

I'm not quite sure how I'm going to manage. (I will, I just don't know how)

This living across the country from the family thing is the pits. But we're sure glad we got such lovely visits!

My heart just started palpitating thinking about taking care of two kids by myself.

I cant even imagine living that far away from family...but yet, most of my brothers have managed to do it just fine. Things always seem to work themselves out....Just know you are loved and thought about often =)

"i will, i just don't know how."

that's perhaps the best attitude in the face of life i have ever heard. it's now post-it noted on my desk.

thanks, em.

I'm sorry you're on your own again. That can be nice, but it an also be so hard. I wish I lived closer and could help/play/talk. I know you'll figure out how to do it. And when you do will you let me know, too. :)

I remember the first few days all by myself after having babies. I didn't feel "old enough" to handle it all! After having my third, I finally broke down and sobbed because I didn't feel like I could do it all by myself...of course my dad had to call right at that moment. It's kinda funny how quickly tears will bring a daddy to his daughter's rescue! I'm so sorry your daddy's not close enough to rescue, at least not in a physical sense. Keep the phone close...for emotional support....

You are taking me back to my first days alone with 2. How well I remember the anxiety and the feeling I did not have enough apendages or energy. Does it help if I tell you: It get's better? But you appear to know that already. Keep on keepin' on!
