My sister just visited for a few days, and it made me realise all over again how trying it is to be raising Devin with no family or friends around. Or even daycare. And how bored and frustrated Devin is with us.
We went out together, alone, for the first time in 13 months. Thirteen. And I’m just realising now as I write this how insane that is. Like, how have we lasted this long? It’s hard to maintain a relationship with your partner when there is always a third wheel, even if the wheel is your offspring. We’re all pretty frazzled and tense at the moment. But we’re doing our best. Things will get easier.
