Okay so I have an almost 3 year old girl and a 7 month old girl and my husband and I have an opportunity to take a solo vacation in June which we've never done. We didn't have a honeymoon so this would be a firs for us. However I am not one to ever leave my kids over night they don't go spend the night at grandmas and I'm a stay at home mom so they are with me 24/7 and I'm really excited about the trip but also really nervous my mom has offered to watch them at her house which is great cause my oldest loves playing over there with my little sister I'm just really concerned about my 7 month old she is really attached to me and gets really upset when I leave the room or her. Idk I guess my question is has anyone had a lot of anxiety about leaving your kids and everything worked out fine? Our hotels already paid for so this trip is happening I just wanted to know any success stories haha thanks in advance!

Of course! Most parents have a difficult time leaving their children. My kids are 4 and 8, and the first few times leaving them with relatives was hard, but everyone survived. If I were you, I would start having them sleep over grandmas a couple of times to get used to it before leaving. That will make you more comfortable and relaxed on your trip, knowing they have done this before. It will also make the kids feel more secure, and not thrown into a situation they have never done before. They will be fine. You will probably have the harder time than them, especially if you have not practiced.
