This is how I do it. Seriously, get your mind out of the gutter.
She can cook but we prefer she doesn't. She knows this and we laugh. She makes spaghetti from a can, she'll burn anything she comes in contact with and Alex has better skills with knife than she does. Cooking is not her strong point. Seriously, you can only do boiled salmon patties once in your life.
I am telling you all of this because she needs her breaks too. She has other grandchildren. I am the middle of five kids. So right now she's in Boston with my brother and his kids. In May she'll visit my sister in Australia for a month.
So that's how I do it. I don't do it alone. I have a mom who's with me, in the background, doing everything else that I can't manage to do. And for the next few weeks the kids and I are going to get a cold hard slap in the face.
I just hope it's not with a boiled salmon patty.
