Life Without Danny: Week 3

I can't believe it's been three weeks already. Almost four! The third week without my husband wasn't too bad. Obviously each week gets better, because I get more and more used to him being gone. He is doing really well in school and I am so proud of him. 

A few days ago, Rylee would NOT nap. I tried for three hours to get her to nap. I tried bouncing her, I tried laying down and nursing her, nothing was working. I was also in the middle of getting ready. So I would put her down to play with toys so I could finish getting ready. Every time I put her down, she would cry. So I would try to get her to nap again. And that was the cycle for three whole hours. It sucked. It was very hard on me. 

Eventually she took a nap, and I got to finish getting ready. I just need to keep reminding myself that everything will get better, eventually. 

We FaceTime Danny almost everyday. Rylee and I miss him so much and can't wait for him to be done with school! It's so hard with him gone, I'm a full time mom and I just miss having him around in general. He will be back on November 6th for Rylee's birthday weekend. We cannot wait! <2


  1. I just wanted to say hi, I am also a "single mom" at the moment and I write blogs about it daily. Good luck, I know it's not easy.

    1. Thanks!! I will have to check your blog out :) Where is your man?

  2. He's in the marine corps and doing some training out of state for a few months.
