This is going to sound pathetic!
My hubby and DS (17 months) are spending 3 nights away in April visiting his family for a big birthday bash. I wasn't able to go due to work and I insisted they still go without me.
Now I am really freaking out that I'll miss my DS too much. Of course I'll miss DH too but it's more a biological/chemical NEED with my DS! I am the one that DS is most attached too and I am also worried about the impact on him.
So I guess I'm asking for reassurance that it'll be okay. Or opinions otherwise.... My big secret fears:
1) DS will forget me, or not love me as much when he gets back
2) DS will be distressed or emotionally scarred by not seeing me in 3 whole nights (perhaps a bit self-centred of me?! but he IS most attached to me out of anyone)
3) He won't be looked after as well as when he's with me! DH is a great dad but never thinks of all aspects of DS's care like I do, and can't interpret DS's needs like I can (perhaps I'm a bit OCD but at least I'd never forget to give him morning tea like DH has hahaha). And... I'm his Mummy!
4) I'll waste those whole 2 days of freedom by moaning and crying over missing DS!
ALL opinions/experiences welcome!
P.S. I COULD go too but I'd only be able to go for 1 night and it's a huge interstate trek which is why we decided I wouldn't bother.
