[ - ] I feel like such a loser, but here goes. dh is going out of town for a week and I'm nervous about having db on my own. db is almost a year old, and still I get a little unsure of myself, having to parent alone for a week. when does this become second nature? when db sleeps thru the night? when he can talk? flame away! 16 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

I still felt like this and DS is 2.5yrs old. A friend who is divorced and only sees DC every other night told me how excited she was that her ex was going to be away for a week since she would have DC every night and that made me re-think my feelings. Now I appreciate all the special one on one time I have with DS when DH is away, but I promise to let other things slide during that week so I can cope (I also work full time +). For example, let housework go, let DH eat pizza one night to make dinner easy, skip bath time every other night etc. [ Reply | More ]

i am at the point where i kind of enjoy when dh is gone for a week. i get FREE evenings. i can do projects around the house, eat whatever i want for dinner, get a good dose of "me" time. by the end of the week, i am glad he's home (even if he's usually too tired to take a full shift w/ dcs). having said that, it was harder when dc #1 was still tiny. got easier around 18 mos when i was more confident with her.

I was the same way! DH went away for a weekend when DD was little and I WOHM and I hadn't been completely alone with DD. It turned out to be really nice. Some things are easier - for instance, I generally make a whole dinner but when DH was away I just made I am a single girl dinners and took DD for bagels and stuff. [ Reply | More ]

Because I bled for two days and then it stopped. Like just stopped. No spotting. Nothing. My period lasts about 5 days.
