We have two more sleeps until our first long-term separation. I haven’t been able to think about much else today, besides the fact that all responsibility to feed, wipe, motivate, snuggle, scold, read and play with you will be Grammy’s for three days and two nights. Many mamas would be overjoyed at the “vacation” they were about to receive, however I am feeling anxious and not looking forward to being away from you.
I am that mom that desperately needs a break at times, and the second I get that break I miss you and feel lonely and empty without you.
My biggest worry is that the more you grow and are comfortable away from mama is that you’ll need me less and less. Please don’t stop needing me.
I will always need you.
