Kid-Free Time

Confession: I haven’t spent the night away from my children, aside from when I have been in the hospital having one, in 9 years.

That’s normal, right?

I’m gearing up for the blog conference BlogHerFood this weekend, and while I am stoked to take my blog to the next level, I am also nervous about being away from my peeps.

What am I afraid of?

Oh, that the house will burn down. That Dory will want her mama and I won’t be there to snuggle her. That Adam will “Dad” when he needs to “Mom.” That my kids will be scarred for life because they needed me and I wasn’t there.

Is that all?

No. I’m also scared that everyone will be just fine – WITHOUT me. Horrifying, I know. As much as I want everyone to have a wonderful weekend, I don’t want it to be too good. They have to miss me. Is that too much to ask?

I’m also a little confused as to what I will do with myself. When I am not “conferencing,” what will I do? Read? Watch TV?? Madness, I tell you!

Stay tuned. Next week I will give you all a full report of a) what a mom of 7 does when she is off the clock and b) how Adam and the crew survived without me. 😉
