Since Mr. Rochester has been gone, there's been no end to Trotwood saying "I miss Daddy." and "Daddy does it this way." and "Daddy is better at this than you are." and "When is Daddy coming home?" It's actually kind of funny. I've also learned that I'm a horrible working, single (pregnant) mom. Seriously. I admire single parents and all that they do. My sister and sister-in-law have both had to do single parenting from months to years at a time because their spouses were away on active military duty assignments and there is no end to my admiration for them and what they did. (My sister was even pregnant with her second child and had the baby while her husband was on a foreign military tour - pregnant and working full-time while caring for her first child). Amazing. I'm going to try and learn from their examples and be grateful we will be reunited with Mr. Rochester after only a week.
