Ok, I need you ladies to tell me to "LET GO" a bit!!! I just found out a have a 9 hour car ride on Saturday. DH and I have to go to the Big City to pick up my new snowmobile. DH can't go by himself (as I am buying it and need to sign for it). I KNOW I should ask MIL (or someone similar) to watch Otter for me. He has been to the Big City several times and gets miserable by the end of the trip one way (4 hours or so). Let alone doing both ways in one day. I can't stand the thought of cramping him up in a car seat all day long! But I can't stand the thought of leaving him that long either!! The longest I have been away is 4-5 hours -- even that is with working full time. I use my lunch breaks to go to his daycare to nurse and play with him. And working full time means the weekends are MY time with him! I don't want to give up a full day! UGG! But it isn't fair to make him ride in his little carseat for 9 hours, is it?? Tell me off for even thinking about putting my LO through that because I am too selfish to leave him for a day!!!!
