After my 5 day trip out of town I began to wonder do our children suffer like we do? Man I could just lay in my hotel room and cry thinking about the moments lost while I’m away if it be work or play. And I feel this enormous guilt deep inside that she is sitting at home thinking, “What did I do? Did mommy leave”. I know I’m a bit dramatic and lets face it I do come to my senses when I travel and eventually give in and let loose. However this last trip was my longest away since being a mommy and I really had a hard time moving into chill out ville and be something other than a bump on a log.
I blame Preschool! Ever since River started Preschool I have this erie lingering feeling that she’s learning to live without me more and more each day. Someone please tell me that this goes away as they grow up, I mean surely my mom isn’t sitting at home curled in a ball sobbing because she only sees me every 6 weeks or so. Since this was my longest amount of time away I decided to get a little creative. I left a little surprise for her so she’d have something to look at each day and remember how much I love her. So I took a little pic of us, taped it to some paper and colored a little message that daddy could read to her while I was gone.
I know I know corny but I don’t care
