It is very hard to let Ian out of my sight….let alone out of my care.
School, field trips, his dad’s (although I know he is completely and totally cared for there), and his friends’ houses.
Honestly, I get nervous even going outside to shovel the snow. Like today, he was playing Wii and I had to shovel, but I felt like I left a toddler alone in the house.
Tonight I dropped him at his friend’s house for about an hour. He lives right down the street and I can get there in less than a minute…but it’s still weird to me.
Will he stop playing and test if he feels low?
Will he eat something he shouldn’t?
I talked to his friend’s mom and she understood all the rules and her husband has diabetes (although Type 2) so I know he will really be ok.
And right when I needed it, his mother sent me a text to tell me they are having a blast and laughing and doing just fine.
(Sigh of relief!)
It’s hard, but I know it will get easier. I just feel super overprotective right now.
