I am going to Chicago for the Parenting in SPACE event in Chicago. The Dad and I leave before the girls are up tomorrow. There are some pluses- I think I’ll get to have dinner Sat with one of my favorite Trauma Mamas. It wouldn’t hurt for The Dad and I to spend time without the girls. I believe I have made solid arrangements for both GB and Hope, separately.
BUT I am not comfortable with both of us being so far away from them for 3 full days. I dislike meeting large (say any more then eight) groups of people. I will feel claustrophobic.
The Dad really wants to meet other Dads that are doing this. I already have my Trauma Mamas.
I will stop whining and start packing. But that doesn’t mean I like it.
