I know I’ve been talking about it a lot lately, but this Thursday I’m leaving for the SheCon’11 conference in Miami Beach! I’ll be leaving my husband at home to play Mr. Mom with the girls for almost four days! I’m not going to lie – I’m excited, but I’m also scared/sad to leave my girls (and husband) for that long of a trip.
You see, I’ve never been away from my girls longer than 24 hours. Even when I traveled to Nashville to see my
boyfriend, Garth Brooks – I was there and back in less than 20 hours.
Thankfully, my husband is the better cook in our family, so I don’t have to worry about them starving to death while I’m gone. I am going to be nice and make sure all the laundry is done for them, but besides that I’m not sure what else I can do to help out Mr. Mom. Or should I be helping at all?! And is it wrong to leave him a to-do list? (Kidding…kind of!)
I strongly believe that all moms need a break (and heavens knows, I’m overdue)…but this is my first big trip. What advice do you have for me? (Besides have a fun trip!) Have you ever left your kids and husband for a “mom only” trip? What things did you do to help prepare yourself (and Mr. Mom)? I’d love to hear your tips!
