First time I did this, I spent most of the time on the flight trying to hide tears! And the first night I phoned home in tears. But then I went on to have a wondeful time, and I came home to a lovely welcome and a new found appreciation from my then dp. And within about 2 hours of being home, it was like I'd never gone.
Tell yourself that your dc will have a fab time, because they will. Their dad is likely to make more effort with them because he simply has to, even if he already does a lot. He will spoil them, and it will actually be good for them to have that daddy bonding time. It's good for them to see that you have a life other than being their Mummy, because they will see you and dh as their role models, and surely you want your dd to still have a life when she has dc or your ds to look after his dc when he has them.
Go and have a lovely time, everything will be exactly the same when you get back.
