And they’re off!


My wife started the tradition when our children turn the age of “9” of taking them on a special “mom and child” long weekend trip to visit her sisters in Alberta.  Joseph is our 4th, and since he is 9 years of age, the time has come for his “Special time with mom”.  Joe has been planning the eating and agenda for his trip for months and months, I thought he might come out of his skin with excitement this morning as I was having breakfast with him.

This means that I am a solo parent at home with 5 kids until Monday evening.  I have some big helpers for sure, but I’ll also not have the helping encouragement of my wonderful wife with our healthy eating that has become a part of my daily routine.

2 things to pray for, that my wife (who is pregrant and has a badly injured knee that will require sugery) will weather the travelling (especially the walking) ok.  And also that the new menu for the weekend won’t end up with “take out” and hot dog/hamburgers…I am doing some planning for some great do it a home cuisine, healthy and yummy… time to implement.

I will miss Jen and Joe for the next 5 days, but Mr. Mom here will be having some fun at home with the kiddos.

One day at a time.
