Anxiety about Taking Toddler & Baby #2 to a Wedding??
I received an email this morning letting me know I only have 15 weeks till our little girl arrives. I’m so excited to meet her, but at the same time very nervous about taking care of them both and even the simplest things like going to the store. I’ve been told these feelings are normal, but after a while you just go with it. I need your opinions on something…
My babysitter’s daughter is getting married this September and wanted my daughter to be her flower girl. Riley just turned two and tends to those moments that every 2 year old has. Saying No to things, trying to be a little mischievous, and throwing fits when things just aren’t going their way. The wedding is 4 hrs away and I would more than likely have to take her and our new little on the trip by myself. My husband will more than likely be working since he is using his vacation time to get things ready for Baby #2’s arrival and when she gets here.
I finally called the bride last night and told her I wasn’t going to let Riley do it. In my opinion, I just think it will be a lot to handle. I’m nervous to take them both to the grocery store, so I’m clearly nervous about going on a 4 hr car ride with them, then hoping Riley will walk down the aisle, and cooperate. I think I would feel different if I was going to a wedding where my family was present because I know they would help me with the kids or if Riley was another year older and simply listened a lot better…Am I crazy for doing this and overreacting??
It would be way cute to have photos of Riley all dressed up and have everyone oo and ahh over her, plus I know she is going to grow up a lot in the next 9 months. So I’m wondering…if you were in my shoes would you have done the same thing??
