So this is it, huh?
You get through a really hard week. You get invited out for both meals for Shabbat. You breath and say, hey, we can go out the whole day Friday! You make plans together. You prepare everything the night before.
You get woken up too early on Friday. Your kid is sneezing and coughing and snotting and miserable.
You go the doctor at 8:00 am. He smirks and welcomes you to parenthood.
You take home your child and do your best.
You grab an hour out in Jerusalem, just as the sun begins its descent.
Your kid is feeling much better just as Shabbat comes in.
You hope it lasts the weekend.
