So today is the day before I travel to Las Vegas! I cannot tell you how excited I am.
However, I need to tell you all that this OCD, routine stricken mummy has not even packed yet.
I finally collected my travel money today, and we booked our seats last night for the plane journey. Mum’s kindly treated me to extra leg room seats for the journey over tomorrow morning.
I have been so busy over the past few weeks that I haven’t had chance to think that I am leaving my little man for 5 days.
I know the boys will have an amazing time together tomorrow. Then it is only 4 days of the usual routine nursery drop off, work, pick up, bath and bed and I will be home.
I haven’t put my out of office on since May this year. Even when I have a day off my emails are always checked and answered where I can.
Next week, I will not be replying to anyone. The only people I will be speaking to are my boys at home.
I phoned mum last night and my first sentence was ‘I really need to get out of this country now.’ I feel it has been a long few months, and I need time to discover new places and also continue to build my confidence.
It doesn’t make me selfish that I am going on holiday without my own little family, it just makes me a real person.
I have never been on holiday with friends before and I am 27!
Being quite a young mum means that sometimes people may look at me and say I have my priorities all wrong. All I am trying to do is find a balance. A balance for me, my friends and my family.
So this time tomorrow I will be on my way to Las Vegas to spend time with my mum and watch my best friend get married.
I know little man will be just fine. But being a mum, of course I will think about him every second of the day and miss him like crazy.
So I am now off to start packing and get things organised for when I leave in the morning.
Have you ever left your children at home whilst you went on holiday?
