Well, I just loaded my precious cargo onto an airplane for Greece. He'll be gone for a little over a month. My mother is taking my son and my brother.
As my sweet little child disappeared onto the escalator going to the gate, I fell into a heavy sobbing session. My child is gone for a month - aren't I supposed to feel some sort of relief about actually having some time to myself? This gives me a month to focus on my new relationship. It gives me the opportunity to have a spotless house. It gives me the freedom to go out at night. I am so sad. I don't know how to function without my child. I already miss him.
I told my son about 500 times that I"m going to miss him -- his response: "I know, you ALREADY TOLD ME THAT!" How will I deal with him being gone for so long? What if something happens? I won't be there with him. Ohhhh.....I NEED my child!!!
Why does being a mother hurt so much??
