Got an early morning flight to catch. Its the first time I am travelling with N alone – wish me luck! I am armed with books and toys.. I hope it is enough to entertain her for 5 hours!
I’m going to travel in the NE for 3 weeks – leaving N with the grandparents. Yes, its ambitious. But I have to do it, sooner or later. And I figured that leaving her with my parents and travelling so I can be back quickly in case something comes up, is the best way to start. Keeping my fingers crossed on how it goes.
N has already expressed her displeasure by developing an upset tummy.
I am really wondering how she will react to me not being there.
Will she cry incessantly and refuse to be held by anybody else ? ( in this case, back I come from whereever I am of course)
Will she – remember me when she needs comforting and be okay otherwise? ( should get her used to my Mum as much as I can in the next 3 days in Ghy)
Will she – not remember me at all and be very happy in the company of the grandparents? ( this will allow me to finish my travel, but when I come back she may not know me anymore. Horror of horrors. )
I will find out soon. I will also find out about how I feel leaving her and traveling. For the first time since she was born, I will be away from her. Whew! Its really a big deal.
