GASP! We left the baby!
My conscience was eating on me but I felt that we had to do it. We haven't really been alone for the past two years. My mom and in-laws have been helping us with Lucy since she was born. Lucy received the best loving care anyone can hope for and we are all spoiled rotten - home cooked meals and an always tidy apartment to come home too. But on the flip side, privacy was hard to come by. And so Lex and I felt we needed to get away for a while before my in-laws leave the three of us alone for good. Yikes!
So off we go to Amsterdam!
A few tears were shed in the airport, I must admit. Will Lucy be looking for her mama? Will she be waiting (in vain) for her papa to read her a story? A few Skype calls eased all of our worries. She spends most of her days with grandma and grandpa after all! In the end, I think we had a much harder time missing her than her missing us!
We had the most amazing time in Amsterdam! We had so much fun being tourists again that we swore we'll try to go on just-us trips every year. We came back a better couple and therefore better parents to our Lucy.

Leaving the baby does not mean I'm not attached to her. It does not make me any less of a mom. I just think that the longer we wait, the harder it becomes. It's great to have some 'adult' time with the husband and girl friends once in a while. And besides, missing those we love isn't always a bad thing.
