I know that E&J won't really know the difference. They will just stay at my IL's house until Dan can pick them up and then my parent's will be here to help him with the 6:00 feedings. And Dan is so good with them and they are so used to him that they will be ok without seeing me and hearing my voice. So really, the only person this is super hard on is me. I don't want to be away from my babies.
A few people have said "Well atleast you will get a good night's sleep" but I don't know, I guess I like the sleep that I get now. I don't go to bed until after 10 because I get to rock and kiss my babies good night. And then I crawl into a bed where sometimes I smell spit up or roll onto a burp cloth that we missed but I love it. I can hear their white noise machine from my room and it helps put me to sleep but not too deep of a sleep. Because in the back of my mind, I am always listening for them. Im always ready to jump out of bed in an instant if one of them needs me. So yeah, thats the kind of sleep that I like.
But just like everything else, I will get through this too. Before I know it, the trip will be over and I will be home. I can't wait for that!
Hope everyone is having a good week!
