Have John Denver ringing in your head now? Good.. I needed to pass it on, I was getting sick of it. Tuesday I will be flying across the country on business. I have to do three days of training for my new job. This past week was really confusing so I'm hoping that everything comes together and clicks this next week during training.
Before I had Bug I traveled for work a lot. I loved traveling and it took me to some really cool places in the states and abroad. Then I had Bug... and my whole world changed.
The first three years of Bugs life I didn't travel for work. I didn't really have to and I didn't really want to leave him. Over the past two years however I have regrown my wings and this past year I made five short trips. Bug usually takes it in stride, he knows mommy is flying on the airplane and I have never been gone more than a night or two. He has not been so understanding for the last two trips.
The last time he grabbed onto my leg and said "Please don't go mommy, please, please, please don't go". Talk about ripping out a mommies heart, then stomping on it. I tried not to play into his manipulation, which is most of what he is doing. Sure I know he will miss me but I'm pretty sure it's mostly for show. My husband, for those of you who don't know, has worked a weird shift for the ten plus years we have been married. So when I would leave, Bug had to stay at one of his grandparents houses. This time however, he gets to hang out with daddy at home. Hubby will be working a regular day shift and he will be home in the evenings now. We are hoping this helps Bug accept my leaving a little better.
So I probably won't be around this week, I'll be back this weekend to tell you all about my travels.
