I am dying here! DH took DS1 (4) to a far away country to spend the second half of the holidays with his family. At the time he was booking, I had told him I didn't want to travel with two young children, but that he should go and be a bachelor, have fun, etc. Then, he said he wanted to take DS1 (4) to spend time with his cousins. It sounded reasonable enough at the time. I am staying home with the baby.
Well, on day 3, I lost it. I mean, complete and utter grief, as if I were back at the hospital at the birth, they had taken him away, and they would not let me see him. Now we are on day 6 and I just feel absolutely depressed. I mean, I love having the time with the baby, but it just seems so sad and empty without the vibrant, energetic activity of my 4 year old (oh, and of course, the tantrums). I still have to wait 2 more days before I see him and DH again. Before this, we had only been apart 2 nights total. I will never let plans like this happen again!! I miss him sooo much!!
