I am planning a trip with my Mom in the next little while. No Kids and no husband. For six whole days! I have never been away from my kid’s for that long and knowing how my five year old asks me every day a million times “What can I do?” It will probably seem like a lot longer than that to her.
I am very excited to go and have a break. To be able to slowly eat a meal. Go to the bathroom by myself and not have to carry around a gigantic diaper bag. I am sure I will have a great time but I know that in my heart I will be missing my three crazy daughters like crazy.
Being with them all day every day creates this atmosphere that makes me feel that their world would collapse without me for a few days. Which is totally exaggerated and not the truth I know. I am just used to being there to fill their sippy cups and make them lunch and to break up there countless silly arguments with each other.
My husband will be with them and he will do an amazing job solo, but it will be different. I am not super strict although I do have a routine that I like and works well during the day. My husband’s will be completely different and there is nothing wrong with that. Different is good. I know that there is more than one way to do things correctly. Even though I may sometimes act like my way is the best. I think as women we all seem to do that every once in a while.
I joke with my husband about remembering to feed our kid’s and change diapers and things. But the truth is he will be great. I know they will have special time with their dad and love every minute of it.
What do you worry most about when you are away from your kids? Any tips for me to make it easier on my kids?
