The longest you've ever been away from your children?

Today is going to be the longest day ever. I work 7:30 to 5:30 as a nanny. Usually I drop the oldest kid off at school then the youngest and I go home to my house to see my baby girl (who is at home with my hubby). Not today though because the oldest is not feeling well so we're all staying here. I am so sad, I don't want to be away from her for 10 whole hours, the longest I've ever been away from her is 4 hours :-/ wahhh. Oh well I guess I shouldn't complain, at least I'm getting paid and I know she's safe at home with daddy and not in some daycare or something.

(I'm a first time mom and she's only 2 months old)

2 weeks.
My older children have summer visitation with their dad every year.

I will be away from my 2 year old for 16 days this Christmas.

My mom picks my boys up for a week or two every summer. During the school year she'll take my 2yo for an occasional weekend. It is always a welcome break!

My middle child spent the summer with my mom so that was pretty long.

7 days. Hubby and I went on a vacay to South Beach. It was great but I was nervous being so far from them.
