For those of you who don't know I am going on a Barenaked Ladies cruise this month. Last night I had a bit of a freak out about leaving the kids for a whole week (especially Nathan). What was I thinking?? I am going to miss him so so much. I was telling this to my best friend in the car today. She was trying to console me.... he'll never remember.... they'll have so much fun with Darryl. And I do know all those things, and the other pointed I added was that I think it's important for kids to know that there mothers are people with interests other then being a mother. Tammy says, "Is it the kids who need to learn that or the mom?"
And it's true, I need to not feel guilty about leaving them. Not feel guilty about Darryl taking vacation to take care of them. But is guilt just par of the course when you are mother?
Don't worry the next post will be bragging about the awesome thing I get to do...
