My First Trip Without Kids in Four Years
I am leaving tomorrow to go to Houston. Talia, age two, is staying home with Daddy. It's a quick trip, I leave at 7am Saturday morning and come home at noon Sunday so that I can celebrate Mother's Day with my mom and kids.
I've left Talia twice at my sister-in-laws house overnight recently and she's done just fine. My sister-in-law lives less then a mile away so I know that if Talia needs me I can be there in a minute. This time it's different.
I'm sure she will be fine. I don't want to take her to a funeral because well I'd have to focus on her and not letting her run amuck. Also, I want to be fully present for my friend whose husband passed.
But still, I'm leaving my baby.
I'm sure it will be fine, but the anxiety is overwhelming.
