It’s 2am in the morning and I’m wide awake. No fever just an exhausting day.
Why did I know this was going to happen? Unannounced visits, unsolicited parental advice and vegan donuts. A man can only take so much help from his mother before he breaks. Promises mean nothing to this woman and now on top of everything else Rosa is sick. Kensi is going to break me or kill me. Whatever comes first. Oh snap.
What a time for Kensi to be gone. I don’t know a thing about parenting a sick kid. But I guess I’m going to learn the hard way by doing. My heart broke for Rosa remembering how her mom would make her feel better. But as much as MY mom drives me crazy, I know she can do what all mothers do and make Rosa feel safe, warm and better. And she gives me the peace of mind to go off to work. I guess I have to take the good with the bad. Mothers are amazing creatures.
Admirals on the other hand, are very good at ripping me a new one. That’s all I needed today after everything else. Life happens…but I still have to work. While I appreciate Kilbride’s lecture on balance, I don’t envy me either but frankly, I wouldn’t have it any other way. I know a lucky man when I see one. So how do parents do this kid thing? I have soooo much to learn.
But I know Kensi and me will figure it out together. I wonder if there is any of that crunchy peanut butter left over?
