So I'm going to a research conference on Sunday and I'm going to be gone for 4 days and 3 nights. I'm going without Ravebaby and DH. This will be the first time I'm going to be gone from Rave for more than 24 hrs. Honestly I haven't been away from DH for this long since 2007! I'm freaking out.
Thank God for Facebook and crunchy mamas as friends. It's good to be able to reach out and not feel like a freak for never having really left my child. I know many moms leave their kids overnight from the get go and if it works for them then more power to them. I'm not that mom. I did not have child to just keep living like I don't have one and I've been fortunate enough that I've been able to make life choices that allow me to max my time time with Rave and still allow me to not lose myself. So I'm not hating on anyone. I don't feel guilty about the way I live my life and you shouldn't either.
Anyways, I'm freaking out. I'll report back how it goes. I'm sure it will be fine. Rave is in the best hands possible. Anyone else other there wait til your child was older to be gone for the first time?
