Respect for single parents

Throughout these last several weeks, it has crossed my mind several times how hard it would be to be a single parent, especially with a newborn.

Last night I was rocking Brandon to sleep and suddenly had to use the bathroom right that minute. There was no holding it in. But he was just in that early stage of sleep where if I moved him, he would wake up. Luckily, I was able to text David (who was in the family room) to come in the bedroom immediately to take over.

Afterward I thought to myself, what would I have done if David hadn’t been around? Would I have pooed on that $900 chair? I can’t definitively answer that. Anyone who has tried to get a fussy newborn to sleep knows that that option wasn’t completely off the table.
