The boyfriend and I have been talking about taking a trip to US for quite some time now but somehow life always got in the way. I lived there for almost 5 years until 2009 and I’ve wanted to go and visit my friends for a long time. We’ve always planned on making it a family trip but this year Lara turned 3 and we started talking about maybe going along and squeeze in a grownups only holiday.
We haven’t been on a holiday just the two of us since before I got pregnant (and we’ve only been dating for 3 months then!) and with our hectic schedules, couple time is hard to come by. So, one hand I’m over the moon about the trip, while on the other hand I’m already experiencing serious anxiety over leaving Lara for 10 days. I know she’ll be in good hands, having the time of her life with her grandparents, but I’m still anxious. We went away for a weekend last summer but compared to that 10 days seems like an eternity.
Vid has done his best trying to calm me down, taking some of the stress away but I’m curious to see what your experiences are with that. Have you ever taken a vacation without the littles when they were still, well, so little? How was it? How did they take it?
I know I’m probably the bigger issue here than she is as I’ll most likely go bananas missing her. I’m hoping some NYC cocktails will help me out but more on that later in the week…
