i had to laugh at myself today - i have a college student come over once a week and watch dd while i get some things done around the house and on the computer. since the weather was nice, they went for a walk. i swear, i cannot go more than 45 min. to 1 hr. w/out seeing dd, or i feel myself starting to twitch emotionally.... i start wondering, "where are they? is she ok? is she happy? should i have given them my cell phone in case something is wrong?, etc...." i've read so much about about attachment parenting, and i'm the one who feels insecure at being away from her!!! she seems to handle it fine! no crying, not even a second glance back - just off on a little adventure! i don't know how moms who work outside the house do it! no disrespect intended. i understand many moms need to work, i just don't think i could do it! i'd be a basket case!!! i was so happy to see them walk up the driveway! i think i must be pretty neurotic.... anyway, just had to share with someone who wouldn't think i was entirely crazy.... thanks for listening!
