I will be heading across the country (from Southern California to Nashville! Woo hoo!) for five days in July and it will be my first time away from my ten-month-old son overnight. I’ve spent time away from him (10+ hours at times) and I am not concerned about his safety or well-being because his dad is the Superman of child rearing and our son adores him. I’m really excited to be visiting my best friend in the South, but I want to make sure being gone is as easy as possible for everyone.
Do any mamas or papas have advice about how to make the transition of leaving and being gone for more than a day a little bit easier for Rachael and co.?
