I've been with Daniel from day one. I never let Daniel travel without me no matter what. There has been a few times, when I was going thru the HRA back to work programs, he's had to travel with Gabby cause she was babysitting him but I called her all day and made sure she brought him home ASAP.
But today when Addy asked to take him with her while visiting Essense ( her friend who's son is also Daniel's age) I took a deep breath and said OK. It took a moment for her to realize I said yes and she kept asking...really?, really? LOL
I decided to trust my instinct as a mother that Daniel can start having time away from me again. Also I know Essence and her son Darryl so I know he'll be relatively safe. So, I allowed my sister to take charge of Daniel. I kept my fussing under control as she took out his clothes and got him ready. I think she was a bit nervous about making sure I felt he was warm enough cause she over dressed him a bit. LOL. I packed the diaper bag, added some food and bottles for later and then stepped back...sorta. I did follow them to the bus stop but only because it was snowing. My sister used the Snuggle to carry Daniel in but still I wanted to be there in case...this is her first time ya know.
Later I called Addy to check in...give me some credit, I held off as long as I could...and received a favorable report. Daniel eat his food, drank both his bottles, gave her a poop present and fell asleep. He was fussing a little bit but I'm confident Addy will figure it out.
Now what did I do with all my free time you ask? Duh, I blogged...while waiting for my son's return :)
