We left our 10 month old baby girl (Yes it took me 10 months to hand her over!!) with my parents over night as we went to a wedding. Although I was only half an hour away i still felt like I was abandoning the poor love. I trust my parents with her I just couldn't get past the fact that she was going to cry at some stage and i wasn't going to be there. I tried to forget about her (Yeah right) but with everyone at the wedding asking about her, it was a tad hard. I eventually loosened up and enjoyed myself. It does get easier , you just have to take that first step and hand her over. Yep i cried nearly all the way to the wedding, but it felt so good to see her the next day and see that big smile and get a cuddle. I still don't like leaving her but i know i have to do it. Not only for me but for her too. Goodluck!
