I always said "I wish grandma would take the girls so I can clean properly." Well one day she wanted them and I 'd be scrubbing the floor and look up and say wheres Melanie? and be like oh yeah and about 20 mins. later do it again! lol Then after about an hour I start to ask when he's going to go get them back!! I hardly ever go anywhere with out them. (My oldest is 3 1/2 and I think I've had my sister watch them 4 times in all) Once she came down so my hubby and I could go shoping by ourselves and spend some one on one time and all i did was talk about the girls! lol

I feel guilty every other Tuesday when I go to get my hair done. So guilty in fact that I started taking her and my husband with me! That what happens when you breastfeed exclusively! Lol!

I wish I could tell ya that goes away, but it didn't for me. I always feel guilty no matter what we or I go do when we leave the kids at home, even when they are with their favorite people and are telling me to leave Mommy! Guess my feelings come from the idea that I had them they are my responsibilty and I feel guilty when I ask other people to take care of them. Growing up I saw a lot of young Mother's always getting people to watch the kids so they could go out like every weekend, weekdays so I guess i went way the other way!

The first time I left my daughter who is now about to turn 4 she was about 3 1/2 months old. She stayed the night with my mother-in-law who lived right next door. The whole night I keep thinking I was hearing my daughter cry and woke up the same time she usaully woke up. But after the 3rd time she stayed the night I had a full night sleep. I felt good to get some rest. The only regret is now my daughter adores her granny more than me. I dont blame her though I just wish I had that special bond with her as well. But now I have that bond with my son. When they spend friday nights with them my son is always asking for me and he will be 3 in december. It is all up to you and how comfortable you are with the person or people you are living your child with if it is with someone you know really well and trust alot. You won't feel too guilty. But in the back of your mind you will still be worried about how your child is doing with out you. But the more often you do it even to run a few errands for an hour or two. The more you realize that your child will be okay with out you for awhile. Don't worry to much remember you will be seeing them soon.
