Vegetable Games

I sleep with the light on when SwingDaddy isn’t here. It’s not because I’m afraid of the dark. It’s because I always think I can do one more thing before bedtime, and he usually takes the notebook out of my hand and turns off the light when I'm already asleep.

He’s traveling for work, so I’ve been going it solo this week. Q keeps looking for his Baba (daddy) when we go into our home office (which is a distinctly colder room without all of his computers running) and knocking on the shower door to see if he’s inside. We ran an errand at SwingDaddy's favorite store, Fry's Electronics, and Q yelped, "Baba!" as soon as he saw the sign in the parking lot.

Q and I are entertaining ourselves with vegetable races, where he tries to cut up his Peel N Play veggies faster than I can stick them back together again. He's quite a pro now, even with the brocky (broccoli) and cotty fwowa (cauliflower), which are the trickier pieces to manage.

We miss you, SwingDaddy. And we're running out of vegetable games, so it's a good thing he's coming home soon!

So cute how Q associates his daddy with places and looks for him.

Those veggies look like a lot more fun than the real thing.

I just finished a solo parenting gig myself this week; good luck with yours!
