    Day Seventeen: Going to a party without Baby Bug. Gasp!

    morning coffee and slippers

    If you’re looking at this then you know I am using the “post ahead” feature of blogging. I’m so thankful that there is such a feature because today is going to be a big day and I don’t think I’ll have a chance to post before midnight.

    Toby and I are going to a fancy party tonight (hopefully fancy shoe shots to come tomorrow if Toby doesn’t kill me for taking pictures of my feet all the time).

    Can you believe it? Toby and I are actually going out and leaving Baby Bug at home with her Gramma and Papa (my parents). I’m getting hives just thinking about it. I know most of you have left your babies long before they were two but I AM A FREAK! We do everything together ALL DAY LONG!!!! I feel like I’m betraying her if I abandon her for even a minute.

    Yes, I know I am wrong. And yes, I know it is good for her to be independent but….

    Will she be able to go to sleep without me? Will she wake up crying for her pacifier (“pah”) and then get scared when I’m not there to retrieve it for her? What if she cries the entire night? What if Papa decides it’s high time she learned to “cry it out” and she cries the entire night!!! And the kicker question: Will I be able to enjoy myself at this adult party without worrying about Baby Bug every minute?

    Probably not. But it is supposed to be a really fun party. I’ll keep you posted.
