going away for the weekend, FREAKING OUT!

dropping the kids off at the sitter around 8 am saturday, and i wont see them again until sunday afternoon. they'll be fine. the sitter is great, has a 3 and 1 yr old, the kids will be so stoked. i actually have to work that morning but i can't make it back to see them before we need to leave to go to my sister's graduation 2 hrs away.

mostly i'm freaking about about MILK. how much do i send? what if it all defrosts and i can't re-use it and he only drinks half of it? what if he runs out? what about the milk i have to pump while we are gone? AAAAAGGGHHHH!

figure milk for 36 hrs, assuming my kid is a hoglet Smile and he'll want 6 6oz bottles or the equivalent, for every 24 hrs... is that a good guess ya think?

yup... FREAKING OUT!

not to mention packing for us, packing the kids, trying to get there on time, not be late for work..... still get everything else done... maybe i'll even sleep between now and then.......

So sorry to hear! Unfortunately, I have no advice. I hope you get it all figured out. I can understand the milk dilemma, that's a tough one. Good luck with everything. Let us know how it goes!

i forgot hotels have ice machines:) if we stay at a hotel we'll have that, and if we stay at my sisters house, she has a fridge. that helps.

I say 6, 6 oz bottles a day is good. I hope you enjoy your little bit of time away. What are you going to do with a full night of sleep? Smile

Actually, Bubba lets me sleep just about every night, and i even get a night or two from DD as well every week. what will i do without chasing DD, that is the question!

and the kids are dropped off! i've gotten 2 calls from my friend already, the kids are trying to kill her (my 2 yr old and her 3 yr old are making trouble) but other than that, THEY'LL BE FINE and there is nothing else for me to worry about now.....well, not much to worry about.. not much related to the trip..... still worrying about whether or not DH passed his state firefighter test, whether Bubba is going to suck down ALL of his milk (i sent around 50 oz) i fed him when i dropped him off and he sucked down a 5 oz bottle less than 2 hrs later. what a hoglet.
