Lately I've been wondering about how I should be spending this last stretch of my maternity leave. Soon, much sooner than I care to acknowledge, I'll be back at work and life as we know it will change. Again. It's hard to imagine. H and I have never been apart for more than a few hours. And even that has only been a couple of times. And yet, in two months I will be leaving him for 13 hour stretches. Eeek! How will that even be possible? And more importantly, how do I prepare us for that separation?
I feel like this is my job over the next while. As much as I want to spend every single minute together, maybe it's time to start to wean us off each other a bit. I know that in the long run independence is a good thing for both of us, but how do you help to cultivate it in a way that feels loving and secure? And that's not a rhetorical question. Any advice would be very much appreciated!
