My parents are going away for 2 weeks beginning tonight. They have watched my DD since I went back to work at the beginning of July and she just adores them.

I have caregivers set up, but I am so nervous and feel like I'm going to cry about this. Tomorrow and Friday I am dropping her off with my pastors wife/friend. She has 3 kids of her own and DD has been there before. But I know she is going to cry and cry when I leave. She doesn't do well with people she's not familiar with. She cries if I leave her in the church nursery, or if I go to the bathroom and don't bring her with me at a friends house. Please please tell me she is going to be okay. What can I do to help her/make this easier?

I'm not as worried about the next two weeks, but still anxious. MIL is watching her the first week, my sister the second, but both at home, so it will be more familiar. Why am I so nervous and pretty much in tears about this?

Re: So nervous about the next 2 weeks

you're nervous and in tears because it sucks when your baby is upset.

but she will be fine. I promise. Call or text them 30 minutes after you drop her off and guaranteed, she's fine.

DD is just now going into the church nursery and still freaks out sometimes if I go potty at a friend's house because she thinks I left her. She screams at the nursery, but the last 2 weeks, she has been happy and playing when we go to pick her up. So, if she can do it - who is pretty much with her mom 24/7 - then I'm sure your darling will be okay.

it will be hard on mom though.
