Last night, I stayed over at Shangri-La hotel in Putrajaya for my company's "Away Day". Big milestone cos I've never been away from Elyssa for an overnight stay before. I was worried how Elyssa would cope and of course how hubby (& MIL who's helping out this week) would cope. I even decided to drive there instead of hopping on the shuttle bus provided, just in case I had to rush home during the night.
There were activities after dinner and by the time I checked my phone, it was close to 10pm. My heart raced when I saw a few missed calls from hubby.
I immediately called back and the conversation went something like this:
Me : You called? How is Elyssa?
Hubby : She's sleeping now
Me : Was she ok earlier?
Hubby : She cried & fussed a little, but overall ok. She's fast asleep now.
Me : Oh.
How come you called me so many times?
Hubby : I was returning your earlier call
Me : Oh.
Well, a part of me was relieved that she did alright on my first night away. And another part of me........... felt like CRYING.
My little baby can do without me at night already! This little baby who practically spent the first three months of her life sleeping under my armpit.. This little baby who always wants my attention at night... This little baby --- who's growing up so fast.
