OK, I’ve been taking a little time off. Here’s the reason…
Today is my birthday, and my parents have been nice enough to come to our house and watch our daughter tomorrow.
So hubby and I are going here.
For three days.
I know, I know. She’s three and a half, Cheryl. Leaving her should be easy peasy. But it’s not. I find myself being a freaky weirdo, with panicky thoughts of potential home invasions (did I give my parents the alarm codes?), sleeping problems (what if she can’t find Pink Puppy), and not to mention worrying that two 65-year-olds are no match for a crazy active preschooler hopped up on Halloween candy (yes, we’re still plodding through our loot). What if she wears them out?
I do have to admit, though once I get through the nerves, the thought of rekindling a romance with my husband…definitely needed, definitely looking forward to it.
Would love to hear your thoughts on this…
When did you first leave your child to go on a vacation with your spouse? Were you nervous? Any tips for me on how to relax?
