Couldn't Do It Without 'Em...


Look man... it ain't no joke when one of us is gone and we're still trying to keep Camp Hoffman rolling like the well-oiled machine it is.

There's a lot to cover:

... breakfasts

... different wake up times

... hair all done (I mean... this one is MORE than enough to own me)

... Meron meeting with friends to make it to choir practice

... Z-Dogg and eggs ('Nuff said... time STOPS when he eats eggs)

... lunches made

... snacks packed

... water bottles filled

... dogs fed

... dogs let out

... dogs brought back in

... walked to class on time

... switch gears to "work mode"

... make it home in time to pick them up from school

... squeeze in a run or two

... dinner?!?!

... homework

... play or goof off to let off some steam

... showers and baths

... bedtime routine (teeth, etc.)

... prayers (lots of them)

... get them to sleep

... clean kitchen

... wash clothes and dishes

... prep for next days lunches and breakfast

... fall face down and sleep

Wake up and do it all again!

And hear me - I am so thankful we have the resources and ability to do what we do with Brighton Their World and it's a true blessing to be a part of it.

But I couldn't pull any of it off without the daily (sometimes hourly) help from these two champions!

They are easily my right hand ladies and they get leaned on a lot (more than I probably should) - but they step up and contribute like no other... and I am so proud of them!

To all the single parents out there doing in day in and day out... MAD RESPECT!

I couldn't do it without a Meron and a Mebbie!
