Travels Without Baby
I am about to embark on a business trip without my husband and without my baby. I’m excited about it because I haven’t attended a new media conference in a long time, and I’m going to BlogHer which I’ve wanted to attend for ages. The first year, I was pregnant with baby, the second year I had just given birth. So this is the year.
This is the first time I’m leaving baby for an extended period of time. This is way more than a day-long business trip. This is Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights away (coming back midnight on Sunday night). 3 nights of not waking up in the middle of the night because baby wants a bottle. Imagine that.
I also feel like a grown up again. I can travel solo. I can attend a conference. I can network. I can be like the me I was before having a baby – only 3 sizes larger and with less hair (post partum hair loss was very very bad to me).
I’m a little worried. Will baby be okay all day and night without me around? Or worse yet, will she not even notice I’m gone?
