My mom has offered me a wonderful gift. She has offered, after the baby is born and she has spent her week here with me, to take all THREE of my girls back to her house for a week; giving Peanut, Daddy and I time to bond and adjust.
Sounds divine doesn’t it?
Doodlebug will LOVE it.
Taderbug will LOVE it.
Bubbagirl? Well, it will be her first time away from home. She was going to go last week but with her teething and such I kept her home. She’s 21 mths old and has never stayed over night anywhere.
Honestly, I think she’ll be fine. My mom is fun. She has dogs, and she’s got a membership to the coolest YMCA EVER! She has Aunt Mae Mae at her house with baby Emma to play with. She has a swingset, and a four wheeler, and cake and crafts and…and…and… yea, my mom’s house is pretty cool.
My concern, is the timing. I’m worried Bubbagirl will connect being away from me with the arrival of the baby.
So, I need/want your thoughts. She’s already started to pull away from me and bond closely with other family members. She’s happy to go out and about with Daddy, my Mom, my in laws.
Is she still too young to even notice? to even care?
Just want some thoughts before I make up mind.
