Don't Judge

I am terrified about being judged if i reveal what i am doing tomorrow night and i know that it is completely insane. I would say about 99% of other parents have done this and when there children are a much younger age than mine .

It's ok..i can say it

Hubby and i are going away for a night , yes that is it just one night away . We will be gone less than 24 hours and i cannot wait .

Its been a long few years , the last time we were away alone with in February 2005 . We have not spent a night sans child since Rebecca was born .

But I'm nervous
I am scared
I am worried

Will Ru be ok going to sleep with out milk ?
What will happen if he wakes during the night looking for me ?

My lovely sister is watching the kids and i know she will do wonderfully but Ru has never been left before .

I want this but i don't want this . I don't want to miss a second but at the same time i need to be husband and wife again if only for a night , i want to drink and laugh and most of all sleep uninterrupted . I want to wake whenever i want the next morning and not have to jump to it within seconds of opening my eyes.

I just hope i can stop worrying long enough to enjoy it.


  1. Don't worry! You will have a wonderful time, and Ru will be fine, I'm sure of it!

    I remember attempting to go to a festival when my daughter was 4 months old. We were leaving her with my mum during the days, who was going to give her expressed milk. We were going to return in the evenings so I could feed her at night and in the morning. Our venture failed. Miserably. But she was 4 months old! She is now 18 months old, and we have tried again. We went away for a whole weekend, and she was ruddy marvellous.

    Don't feel guilty about leaving him. He'll be looked after perfectly by your sister, and if he's anything like mine, will fling himself at you in excitement when he sees you the next day.

    Enjoy yourself. As mums, we definitely deserve it once in a while!

  2. Enjoy your night away! They are few and far between once you have kids so try not to worry (easier said than done!) and just enjoy yourself.

  3. Ru will be ok sweety, I promise!
    This weekend will be the fourth time the boys have been to their dad and I've gone from being worried sick the first time, to squealing with excitement about them going tomorrow! lol :)
    There's NOTHING wrong with wanting, no, NEEDING some child-free time sweety. *hugs* enjoy your night! xx

  4. Woman and mothers are terrible at judging others, have fun!
