To be missing DC's

Left my two DC's (4 and 1) at my parents 2 hrs away this afternoon so that DH and I can finish packing house up to move next week.

Was meant to have a small date night out tonight but DH has fallen asleep on sofa after long and stressful week dealing with estate agents and other twats to do with the move so we stayed at home.

Second glass of wine down and am suddenly overcome with sadness at missing DC's (honestly speaking although I love them to bits i too frequently get overwhelmed by them just being kids (tantrums etc) and can usually unwind a bit in the evenings knowing they're asleep in next room). I'm going to be back with them on Wednesday while DH finishes the move but am suddenly just in tears at "missing" them (it's been all of 10hrs ffs and they'd have been asleep for at least half that time if they'd been here). Am I really that pathetic?

And now I've just spilt wine down my top. Feck

Aw buttons, of course you're not bu. 1 is very little to be away from you and house moves stress us all out. Hope you can manage the date night another day. And I'm sure grandparents will be spoiling them silly.

Yanbu, but make the most of it, me and dh never have time to ourselves, Dd2 is a shit sleeper, and Mum has been in poor health, so we have come to the agreement she'll have her when she's sleeping better, she'll have the other 2 but they are older, but I do miss them when they go there, it's too quiet, even though I wish for peace, they can't win grin

Sounds pretty normal to me - I used to have a baby-peril nightmare every week on the night after DS had been to nursery when he was very little, I think just from the subconscious stress of not being around him full-time during the day!

Thanks guys.

Just tiptoed to kitchen to put washing machine on when the only person who might wake up is DH!

No baby peril nightmares here (yet - oh god!!) Just, if they were here I'd go in and give them a little cuddle. Going to focus on the fact that I can sleep in as long as I want tomorrow morning! No 5am wakeups or elbows in my back for me! And that's not just because I'm tempted to leave DH on the sofa ha ha

I usually find the first day the worst and just as you are starting to relax;no early mornings, weeing in peace and enjoying a cuppa they arrive back.
