You gotta relax. That can't be healthy.

Do something super fun and enjoy your free time.

 My dd never stayed overnight anywhere without me until she was 7 or 8, not even with family. But I felt the way you do when she finally stayed overnight with a friend without me that first time and it did get easier. So at age 3, I can't imagine how I would have felt, lol. The good news is that she is probably having a great time and it will be morning before you know it.

I am with you. I have been away from my girls for 5 days now. And I am going to end up missing my 3 yo birthday. I cried when I realized that. ((Hugs mama)) try to get some sleep and you will see her tomorrow.

Drink some warm milk or tea and go to sleep. She'll be well rested in the morning, but you won't be if you sit up all night stressing over it.

I was the same way with my girls. It wasn't so much wanting to cuddle, but wanting to physically see that they were in their beds, safe, and asleep. It does get better as they get older. I had to seriously take a step back and relax. My anxiety was starting to rub off on my oldest. Try to relax. Do something you love that you normally do not get to do with her there. She is probably having a good time with her grandma.

Breathe. She is just two doors down. It will be okay. Play naked tag, paint your toes, grab a shirt that smells like her and sleep with that. 

My boys stay the night a couple times a month at my one aunt's house and while it gives me a break, the house gets too quiet at night. So I watch tv shows that I don't watch when they are awake, play video games, read, have a girls night out, write in my journal, talk to friends and so on. You get some adult time. Learn to enjoy it.

Im super anxious and dd started staying w my parents when she was potty trained.

I never freaked out cause i know how they raised me and my brothers and how she would be ok w them.

They have even taken her out of the country.


Ds has only stayed w dh. But hes autistic so iys harder.
