I am a stay at home mom and with Stella all day. Im afraid she may freak after a day when she realizes im not here . Im may be over reacting but I will feel horrible if she does and I cant come back to do anything?

Clare is right.
i did that also when my first one was about the same age. for as long as she knows who you are going to leave her with she'll be fine. as the saying goes... out of sight, outof mind. well.. that is for babies their age. she'll be fine... she'll be all ecstaic when you get back, but she'll be fine. and you need the rest. as clare said... all stay at home mothers need that big time!

I know how hard it is to leave your baby for the first time. Ask yourself...Am I comfortable with whom I have to care for her while I'm gone? The best advice I can give you is to gear your self mentally for this separation. Like, you knew that this would happen one day & she's going to be just fine. This is a normal part of life...you'll be all refreshed & relaxed when you come home & it'll all be fine. I found in the past that the best way to leave is to "just leave" with no turning back for 2nd & 3rd hugs & kisses. Good luck...and...have a nice two day vacation. Stay-at-home moms need them.
