I’m leaving my babies for a few days. Raymond and I are attending a conference in Portland, Oregon so my mother is coming to stay with the children. It will be good for all of us I think. Good for the kids to spend some time with my mother – and some time away from me. Good for Raymond and I to spend some time together without the kids around. Good for me to step a little further back into the Art and Academic worlds and take a (temporary) step away from my mothering obsession.
Good for all of us.
But right now I feel terribly sick to my stomach every time I think about it.
