Y6 trip

My Y6 daughter has gone on her school's residential trip this week. I know she will be loving it. I too have enjoyed it as have been able to have quality time with my youngest and there has been no arguing, I bickering or fighting and bedtime has been a dream. Sure I do miss my eldest and am looking forward to seeing her on Friday but feel pretty bad when I go on Facebook. Virtually every other mum (and quite a few dads too) are on there claiming how much they miss their children, roll on Friday, can't wait for them to come home, wish they had never gone. I don't feel like that. I do miss my daughter and have thought about her loads but I know she is having a great time and probably not missing me at all. Think going on this trip will give her more confidence and experience new things but am I mean for not wishing she was here and enjoying a bit of peace and quiet? Not sure if I'm abnormal as no one else has said this.

You should come to our school. We all have the same thinking as you. The home is quiet and there has been no fighting and bickering. Of course we all miss our DC and I can't wait to see my DC on Friday but I know she is Having an amazing experience with her class and I am very grateful she has had the confidence to go away.

Don't believe Facebook. That's a hiding to nothing. It's a heavily edited version of life. Nothing wrong with your feelings at all. I was the same a few weeks ago when DS went on his.

Agree with justhadmyhaircut - they're great big fibbers!

I don't see why they would be lying.confused

I miss my kids when they're away. It doesn't mean I don't want them to have fun or experience new things.
