  • well I am not normally without my kids more than a couple hours. My oldest however did stay the night away from me at age 18 months and 2.5 years with grandparents, but my youngest is 2.5 now and has never stayed the night away from me. My oldest is now 5 and hasn't stayed the night away since 2.5 so she probably don't remember it she wanted to stay the night at my cousins house a few weeks ago she was gone an hour and I started missing her like crazy I think cause I new she was going to be gone all night or that is what I thought lol. She left 11am and daddy had to go get her 20 minutes away at 12:30am lol. But that is ok cause I missed her so much lol. It is strange cause like if I do get a chance to go out without kids and I am gone for 2-3 hours I don't miss them (probably cause i never get away lol), but if they are going to be gone over night I miss them an hour after being gone lol

  • I would agree w/that. I mean, I miss them when I'm at work & thinking about them but.....that first day when they go to their dads I get a lot of stuff done so I am super busy, but after that, I miss them terribly & can't wait for them to come back home!

  • I am never away from them for more than a few hours and that only happens a few times a year.

  • I'm with them every day because I'm a SAHM but this weekend me and hubby went on a little honeymoon vacation for 2 1/2 days and I was so anxious to get back. I missed them so much. It's really hard being away from them too long. But they were in good hands and they had a blast. I don't think they really missed us lol

  • About 8 hours. Sooner if I see someone else with they're children. Makes me crazy jealous.

  • Probably after 5 hours or so. Sometimes even less. There are times when I miss my son when he's sleeping!
