Steven and I are going to a cabin in Greer for the weekend. We were planning on taking the little man but my mom just called and said that she could take him for the weekend...
I am already having some serious seperation issues with this kid. I get sad when he takes a nap for too long because I miss him. Yeah, it's bad. The longest that I have ever been away from him at one time since he was born was three hours. THREE HOURS. Since he has been born Steven and I have gone out twice by ourselves without him. I have just gotten so used to having him with me all the time that even when Steven is home and I need to go somewhere, I usually just take Winston with me.
So this brings me to my decision. To leave him or not to?
On one hand I want to take him because leaving him would be to hard for me. So really for selfish reasons. Also, it would be our first trip as a family. I also feel bad for leaving him for a full weekend. Does it make me a bad mother?
Then on the other hand,
Maybe some time alone with Steven would be good for us and healthy for our relationship. Winston is four months... Maybe he will be fine to leave for the weekend. I know that he will be in very good hands. I trust my mom with him more than anyone else, including me.
Am I being crazy?
So, I need opinions please! Should we leave him with my parents or bring him with us? Really I know that this is not a big deal but I am having a really hard time deciding.
