So me and the single dad are still creeping along slowly.
Quick recap of the last month as you guys may already know: he had his kids for 3 weeks while his ex was away; ex returned, kids were really sick and she kept taking them to daycare rather than taking them to the doctor. (she's bipolar and won't take medication). They had drama/arguments with that so he had kept the kids while they got better, then last week him and the kids went to visit his family in Austin for vacation. While he was on vacation with his family and boys in Austin, he sent me messages and checked in with me...which was nice since I talked to him about his bad communication skills before he left. :) It was a much needed vacation for him as also during the time he got a big promotion at work. So when he's not with his kids or me, he's working his butt off and is just exhausted. I can see how tired he is every time I see him.
Anyhoo he's back from vacation after having a nice time with family and has been in touch with me. He told me again how this week has already been crazy and he is just exhausted.
Do you guys have any nice suggestions of something simple I could say or do to convey that I am here for him while he's going through such an exhausting time? He doesn't really take care of himself because he's so focused on working hard and (as he should be) on taking proper care of his kids and providing a home for them.
