View Full Version : Missing my babies
06-26-2006, 01:34 PM
We live in South Carolina but my family and my inlaws live in New Mexico. Well, every other summer our daughters (9 and 7 years old) go to stay with my inlaws.
This is the 2nd time they have gone, and I KNOW they are being well taken care of and they are happy and doing lots of fun things...but I am really missing them this time around. They left the last weekend in May and won't be back until the last weekend in July. We write letters and talk on the phone at least 1 x a week, but I sure am missing them!

Thatís a normal feeling to have. My son went away to camp just for a weekend one summer and I missed him like crazy. Heck I miss them when they go on school trips. Gives you a big hug.

Giving you a big hug!! If you get to missing them to much- pick up pen & paper & write down what they said & the conversation you had & do this every time when you talk to them. I promise you'll have wonderful memories when you & they get older. Kinda like keeping a scrapbook!! Which is what I did with my grandkids, as I don't get to see them that often. God Bless you!

That is a really good idea, I hadnever thought of that before. We do write to each other and talk on the phone every week.
Thanks for the support ladies!

I live in South Carolina too. My son use to go visit his grandparents in Michigan when we lived in Ohio for a week or two at a time. I would cry and missed him so much, but I wanted them to have that time with him. It will get better soon and time will pass faster than you think! :D

Wow I know it has to be hard. Well now we are in July so you can start counting down the days :)
I have never been away from my 3 year old and I am already panicking because I will be leaving him overnight with my husband to go to an out of town Wedding. I know it is only overnight but I am already dreading it!

My kids are older... and I still miss them when they're off at camp or on trips during the summer. But somehow, the times does fly by -- and I try to do those things I normally might not have time to do. Just sit and read a book, clean out their bedrooms, go through those bathroom drawers, organize stacks of photos and all those papers from school ... little projects to check off the list. If you're really adventurous, try making dinner or baking goodies and getting them in the freezer... it might free up some more time to play when they return. HAng in there!
