OKay, I need some rational minds to help me out hrere. My dd is 4.5 yrs old and I have never left her for more than a few hours, much less over night. Ever. Just never had a reason to. She is very independent and has little to no seperation anxiety. She also just weaned a few months ago, so that is no longer a need of hers. Well I have the chance to participate in a competition in Orlando, Florida in November. This would be the highlight of my light, with the exception of marraige and birth. I have trained hard, and feel like I could do well. BUT, I would probably need to leave dd here (in Kansas). I would bring dh with me, and dd would stay with me folks. My folks raised us very AP, they would cosleep, comfort, and take amazing care of her. However I am torn witht he though of my dd laying in bed at night with them feeling neglected. I know this is silly, and my parents could not be anymore trustworthy, AP, and loving. But this is agonizing to me,. It would be for either 2-3 nights. But I DESPERATELY want to do this competition to prove something to myself. Would I be a horrid mommy to do this??
