|Princess P and Hubs dancing at the wedding|
I was looking forward to some one-on-one time with my littlest because it seems like that never happens. We went for a bike ride, played at the park and watched some 'Daniel Tiger'.

The couple of days with just one baby made me remember all those days with just my Princess P. It gave me insight why I was who I was then and so thankful for who 3 kids has refined me to be. Having one child is a unique place though. Things in theory should be easier, but they're not because you still have a child who has needs and perhaps those needs are more magnified because they're not entertained by other kids and look to you for everything. For example, I was cooking dinner tonight and Charlie was losing it. He was under my feet asking me to hold him and crying for a cheese stick and emptying kitchen cabinets to show his frustration that I was not taking him outside like he would like. However, the second Hubs and the kids walked in the door, he was immediately different. He ran to play and didn't cry and waited for dinner like the rest of us. See, it's not necessarily easier to have just 1 as it is presumed to be.
