NaBloPoMo Day 19: Not Guilty

I went to my first Zumba class last night and had so much fun! The workout was exhilarating and the other girls who were taking the class were a hoot!  Incidentally, I've lost 5.5 lbs in the past two weeks. Nothing major, but it's only been two weeks.

I have to admit that on my way there, I felt this terrible knot in my stomach. It is the feeling I get when something really bothers me.  I felt awful about leaving Little One at my parents' house ALL DAY. They watched her when I was teaching and then again when I went to Zumba.

I know moms need time for themselves. I don't know why I can't get over the feeling that I'm a neglectful mom if I don't have my daughter with me. To be honest, I really envy this one friend I have. She's got two little ones and every weekend, the kids stay at either her parents' or her in-laws'.  I can't stand being away from Little One for too long. I don't know why. She's had one overnight at my parents' and she survived. Apparently, she and my parents had a blast.  I was the one who was all stressed out and couldn't sleep!

After last night and that fabulous workout, I came home and didn't feel so guilty.  Little One was happy to see me,. I got lots of hugs. I took her home and got her ready for bed.  I got even more hugs.

I think we're going to be okay.

It is a blast to Zumba with you!

I think you're going to be just fine, too. Spending 24/7 with someone, especially such a sweet little dependent someone, tends to make us very attached, and so of course it's difficult for you to be away from her. Don't worry. It will get easier. Perhaps as soon as next week's class!

Awww! Thanks! Tee hee! It was a blast Zumba-ing with you too! Sooooooo much fun! I was in my own little world! I was really into it! LOL! Love it! When I got home, I was doing some of the moves with my toddler! She thinks it's so much fun too! Cute!

You are right. I started working half days last summer and then teaching 9 to 3:30 in September. Being away from her the whole day is hard. I think I felt guilty that I was gone all day and then at Zumba in the evening, when I should have been capitalizing on my time with her in the evening. I think I'll get over it though! LOL! ;) I'm really looking forward to next week's class!
