Leaving the kids for the 1st time in months (never since M2 was born), is a struggle for me. I am filled with mixed emotions as the date comes nearer. I am preparing both Maxine and myself from our separation. They say its better to separate before you even leave. So, I try and not spend as much time as I want with her. I bought a few things to distract her while she is at the other house. I got her a small pool and asked the driver to put sand in it, sticker books and a new Dora book that teaches her how to close buttons, snaps and zippers. I hope it is enough. I hope she's been prepared enough.
