Every now and then Charles has to travel for work. Currently he's in Minnesota for a big ecological conference, and has been gone for 6 days and 6 nights... but who's counting? He'll be back shortly though and Eddie and I can't wait. It's times like these when I think about all of the parents out there who are doing the world's hardest job alone. HOW DO YOU DO IT?! Seriously, how? I am exhausted by the time bath time rolls around and my arms can barely lift Eddie into his crib at the end of the day—thank god for the 3 days a week of daycare! Enough of my complaining though, this post is really to send out a big high five and some serious amazement to all of you moms and dads who do this on your own, you're incredible!
