So, tomorrow Paul and I finally get to have some alone time together. Some MEGA ALONE TIME, as in the WHOLE NIGHT WITHOUT THE BABY ALONE TIME!
Two of our wonderful friends are getting married tomorrow, and Paul’s mom agreed to watch Nathan for the entire night so we could attend the reception. So, my totally awesome husband rented a suite for the two of us in the same hotel where the reception is going to be. (They rented a ballroom.) I’m nervous about leaving Nathan- both of us are. This is going to be our first night away from him. I know he’s in good hands, but I’m still a nervous wreck. What if I didn’t pump enough milk? What if I forget to pack something essential for him? What if he screams the whole time? What if he wakes up in the middle of the night and I’m not there to comfort him? What if he Poop Bombs and poop shoots out of his diaper and splatters all over the place? All these what ifs are floating around in my head, circling my brain like prey. I’m trying really hard to not stress, because like I said, I know he’ll be fine. So why can’t I stop worrying? This whole Mommy thing is HARD with all the worrying that goes along with it!
So wish us luck, anonymous Internet. Let’s hope the worry subsides and we can have a ton of fun (I’m sure we will, even with Worry nipping at our heels) … who knows when our next Mega Alone Time will be.
