So Mr. C wants us to go on a honeymoon after the wedding, which normally everyone does. However in my case, I don’t think I could go. Ever since my son was born (Jan 08) I havent been a night without him… I just don’t see this happening. Does anyone have any helpful tips or advice that might get me passed my fears of leaving him with someone else?
Oh, I suppose I should mention that the ONLY person I trust with my son is my sister. BUT she just had a baby 3 weeks ago… need I say more?
Help me PLEASE!!!!! 🙂

Maybe you could delay the honeymoon for a few months until you feel more comfortable? I’d say that if your instincts tell you to stay with your son then it’s a good choice.

I totally feel you on this one. My son turns 3 a little under a month before we get married and I’m dreading being away from him that long. He’s never been away from me for more than one night and even then I worry about him constantly and call to check on him a million times. And when he was a newborn he never left my sided. I didn’t start letting him spend the night until he was about 8 months old and that was very rare.
So I totally understand how you feel.

Well, by April 2010, your son will be over 2 years old. Our nephew is 2 and stays with his grandma every friday, but also his mom and dad just took a weekend trip to Chicago. He was perfectly fine. Oh yeah, the 5 month old was there, too! It’s important to take vacations just as husband and wife, even if they’re hard. Your son will be with your sister–have you talked to her about it? It’s only for a few days or a week, right? She says you have to tear yourself away, but when it’s over, you’re glad you did because it’s good for your marriage. Which, in turn, is good for your son. If your husband wants to go on a honeymoon, I don’t see how that’s a bad thing. Your son’s old enough to understand mommy’s leaving for a week and will be back. And surely you’ll bring him a gift =]
Just make sure the phone lines are open. Spring to keep your phone available overseas or stay in state, like florida. If you want to go ovreseas, go somewhere like Cancun; close to the states, lots of cell service, etc. Tell your sis you’ll call every night to talk to him before bed. My parents left us occassionally when we were little. I was so little I don’t remember, but I know they did it once a year for a week. The other trips they took us with them. But see your how your sister feels about it. It may give her a taste for what 2 kids is like =]
