I have only been a way from my dd when she was a newborn and sent to another hospital for 6 days ,and 4 of those day I was stuck in another hospital .Well my dd is 3 almost 4 and tonight she begged grandma to let her stay over .I live two doors down from my mom and I am scared shitless ,I want to go and get her .I am so lost with out my baby girl .I just want to cuddle her and kiss her .I am having a hard time with this .Does it get easier as she gets older .I am just lost .my vent
My dd never stayed overnight anywhere without me until she was 7 or 8, not even with family. But I felt the way you do when she finally stayed overnight with a friend without me that first time and it did get easier. So at age 3, I can't imagine how I would have felt, lol. The good news is that she is probably having a great time and it will be morning before you know it.

I am with you. I have been away from my girls for 5 days now. And I am going to end up missing my 3 yo birthday. I cried when I realized that. ((Hugs mama)) try to get some sleep and you will see her tomorrow.
I was the same way with my girls. It wasn't so much wanting to cuddle, but wanting to physically see that they were in their beds, safe, and asleep. It does get better as they get older. I had to seriously take a step back and relax. My anxiety was starting to rub off on my oldest. Try to relax. Do something you love that you normally do not get to do with her there. She is probably having a good time with her grandma.
Breathe. She is just two doors down. It will be okay. Play naked tag, paint your toes, grab a shirt that smells like her and sleep with that.
My boys stay the night a couple times a month at my one aunt's house and while it gives me a break, the house gets too quiet at night. So I watch tv shows that I don't watch when they are awake, play video games, read, have a girls night out, write in my journal, talk to friends and so on. You get some adult time. Learn to enjoy it.
