Rae is away all this week, busy in Canberra learning new things for her job. She left on Sunday night and is back this Friday. This means I’m in sole parent mode, and I think it’s the longest she’s been away by a couple of days. Things are going fine in her absence and this made me realise something.
Years ago I would have been asked if I need help with the kids. This time, nothing. I’m not sure if this is a reflection on my capabilities as a parent or simply changing times, but either way, it’s a good thing.
