My daughter is gone for one month every year to visit her dad. She’s on the other side of the United States right now and not being able to talk to her much really gets me in my feelings. But one more week and my baby will be home! Anyone else go through something similar than this? What ways do you stay busy so you won’t be sad the whole time your kids are gone?
It’s super hard but I find connecting with friends and keeping distracted helps. Make it about ‘you’ time and do things that you really enjoy. I paint or read or chat to good friends who understand.
