  • Go out to lunch with a friend, get a pedicure, see a movie, do things that you can't do with a baby. Have a good time, and relax. I know that you miss her, and I'm sure she misses you too, but I'm confident that she is in good hands (they raised your husband, didn't they?)

    And you are not crazy at all. I remember the very first time that my mom watched my firstborn so my husband and I could go out for my birthday. He was a month and a half old. We dropped him off at her house and had to return to our house because my husband forgot his wallet. We walked in, and I almost cried. The house felt so empty, and it just felt wrong to be without the baby. You're not crazy. You're very normal. Almost all moms feel the same way. The ones who don't are the crazy ones. :)

  • hugsYou haven't gone crazy, gurl, you miss your baby. Just remember that she's safe, is missing you, too, and will return. Then, do some things you haven't been able to for a while. No cleaning, either! Call her just to check in so that your able to re-set, re-focus and start relaxing. Enjoy this time!

  • Go shopping, have a day of pampering, visit friends, staying busy really helps. Call and check on her but don't talk directly to her, she may sense your unease and get upset. She is ok, now you just go and relax and enjoy your free time.
