My wife heads to Cleveland for a day and then has evening engagements for two nights. A third night after that is possibly mine as well. This gives me up to four solid days and nights of solo parenting. Writing this after the first night, I hope things settle out. The kids were certainly missing their mom and showing me in various less than constructive ways.

I find it hard to be in that loving, understanding place the twentieth or so time that my daughter pulls out a testing behavior. Yep, that was the boundary.
