In a weeks time I am going on my first holiday without my little girl. I am going to miss her terrible and probably ring her the 3 nights I am away in sydney, and hug & kiss her loads when I get home. I know she will be fine with my twin sister looking after her, as she loves her Auntie Lou lots and I trust her with Paige, but she has never been away from me for more than one night, and that didn't happen till february this year.
I am looking forward to me trip in one way as I need a break (been a single full time working mum)but not in another knowing that I have 'left' her. I will probably cry next friday when I drop her at care and be all stressed that I will leave my plane ticket at home.
Help, how do you cope been away from your little ones for extended periods of time?
