So I have literally spent the entire week preparing for this…
It’s so exciting! Bloggy Boot Camp is always awesome, I’m rooming with some fabulous girls and it will be exciting to get some me time with the blogging ladies. BBC Vegas was a trip, and I know this was is going to be ESPECIALLY awesome.
It’s going to rock, but GOOD LORD, it’s hard to prep for this kind of stuff with a teeny baby. Especially when you’re nursing and having to pump and stress about the husband taking care of her for the entire weekend (not that I don’t think he can do it, but OMFG) and stress and MORE WINE NEEDED.
So the magical solution was to… BRING THE FAMILY WITH ME!
It’s not as scary as it sounds. They will not be joining me at the conference and will not actually be sleeping in the hotel room with me and my other bloggy roommates. (LUCKY FOR THEM) My sister in law lives close to where the conference is being held and they will play with the cousins while I get my blog on. So my trip away from my baby is slightly less traumatic, but still. AWAYYYYY! PUMPING! DRAMAAAAA!
I have spent HOURS planning out milk needs, times to pump, and preparing for every possible contingency. Milk strike? Check. Sleep issues? Check. Zombie apocalypse? I’m on it. Because you need to make sure your husband is prepared for anything. Even when they are 4 miles away.
I don’t remember going away ever being this hard.
But come to think of it, I don’t think I ever went away.
