Today was the first time I really spent any time away from Connor. We had a mini practice run last night when I went to pick up groceries, but today I was away from Connor from 11:30 am until almost 5:00pm. Beth and I went clothes shopping! (Which, despite realizing that I can almost shop in plus sizes, was a really good time!)
All in all, it went well! I think it was much harder on me than on Derek or Connor! On my way in to Edmonton to meet Beth, a really good song came on the radio, so I turned it up real loud, something I wouldn't have done with Connor in the car. Then, I drove a little faster than I normally would. have... I was flying down highway 2, grooving along to the song, and then I got a little teary! I suddenly felt very much alone!
I shook it off pretty quickly though, because I know that it was good for me to get away finally, and I think it was good for Connor to have some Daddy time too! Derek said that it went really well, but that it was a lot of work!!
I really didn't think that being away from Connor would be so hard!! I mean, he was a part of me for 9 months, and today being away from him felt more like becoming unattached than the day he was born did!! I had a good time, but I was so happy to be back home with him afterwards. I am clearly going to be a mess when Connor goes away to college!!
One day at a time Lori, one day at a time...
Last night after Connor's bath, I twisted his hair into a point! Hee hee! What a cutie!! Now you understand why I never leave his side!!
Tonight's Bedtime: 10:12pm - Not bad!
