For those of you that follow me on Instagram, which you all should 😉🤗 ( @squallymuffin ), you saw that last weekend I went to Gatlinburg, TN and was partying it up for my fellow mommy friend’s bachelorette party. 🎉 4/7 of us ladies had kids and for 3 of us, it was our first time away from our kids overnight. While I was really feeling it for the bride-to-be and our mutual friend, both of which have newborns, I was having a complicated mix of emotions for myself as well, since I was the 3rd person getting this experience for the first time. The big difference between us was that my kid is a whole 3 years old and has had the honor and privilege of sleeping with me every night since she was born. 😅😱 I know, that’s crazy to imagine, but that is my truth by my own design.

There was a mandatory bonding trip of sorts the week before I started vet school and I ended up not going and preparing myself to suffer the consequences because the idea of leaving my 10 month old breastfed beauty over night was more than I could handle. It gave me the worse case of anxiety and literally made me sick. But now, 2 years and some change later, while the idea still ultimately didn’t sit well with me, I knew that this trip would be the perfect opportunity for me to get this anxiety provoking experience over with!

Despite all our planning, there were some last-minute changes for the better. The bachelor and his 2 kids came and spent the weekend with my husband and Muffin while we ladies did our thing a mere our away. It seems so simple, but the sheer fact that Muffin’s god brother whom she adores would be with her all weekend gave me so much comfort! I knew she was going to be fine regardless, but this was even BETTER!
