Leaving, on a jet-plane...

OMG, ladies. I am FREAKING out. I have had a trip planned since before Maia was born, and it's coming up. I leave on August 23 for four days in Orlando. And I don't know how I can do it! My plane ticket is non-refundable and I really want to go for my girls' trip...but how can I leave my baby for four days?? I mean, she'll be at home with Daddy and her Nanny (as always) but the thought of being away from her for four days is filling me with panic. I have been away from her overnight once and that was fine, it was just overnight. But four days... eeek. Any advice/pep-talks???

lol! have fun and try not to think about it! chances are she'll be busy having a blast with daddy anyway! think of how much more fun things will be when you get back renewed from a break and how much she'll love you for coming home! that's about all i've got! right now i'm working on the concept of leaving her and the realization that she'd be fine it's my own concerns that no one knows her like i do (even daddy he's at work all day and there's just no way he could possibly know! lol!) and won't treat her exactly the way i do and she won't respond the same way. and of course knowing that society won't treat her like that and she needs to learn to be with ppl other than me! since she spends lots of time with daddy anyway, i'm sure maia will do just fine!!!! plan a mommy and me activity for when you get back for your peace of mind!

Thank you, Mara! That is great advice. I have taken days off before and after to be with her. I think it's just the Mommy nerves, you know! I can totally understand your nerves about Jade learning to be with others, it's just so hard to realize our babies are growing up!!

yep, there's something just inherently wrong with the whole concept of growing up, it's both completely and utterly forbidden and can't happen fast enough some days! lol!! it seems that everyday she shows a little glimpse of her teenage self and makes me shudder in fear for society! i however will survive as her mother who knows her better than anyone, and as the first one she has driven to dominated insanity in order to do her bidding during her chaotic reign!!! um yeah it's one of those days, she's been a little too good! lol!
yay for having time before and after with her! i see fun times to be had! and we expect lots of pics!!
