must be a new mommy thing

I am very blessed to have a large family circle in town with us. Lucy is so loved and I hope she always knows and understands that. On a regular basis I am asked by the grandmothers, great aunts, and many more when they can watch her and for me to let them know if they are needed in anyway. I love this. However, Lucy has started walking and pushing her limits constantly to see what she is capable of doing, as well as what we will allow her to do. Because of this, I have a hard time letting anyone else watch her for very long. As I have previously stated, I am heading to the beach Friday night and I have a million things to do. I'm finding it difficult to pick up the phone and ask any of the above mentioned people to take Lucy for a few hours so that I can get beach-trip-shopping done and a little cleaning, etc. I just feel like she can be such a handful and I don't want to inconvenience anyone. I know they are all perfectly capable of keeping her safe, and I also know that she is turning into a bit of a drama queen. I think this must be me showing my true blue first time mommy colors...

Since you have her everyday I understand how she can be a lot to handle at times. But with a fresh pair of hands who love her as muhc as you do - her antics would be their joy. Their absolute joy. Call somebody and share your blessing..."Hey Lucy.." and give yourself a break. Smiles.

i remember someone telling me that i have to start letting go of my son the moment he was born, and he's just 2. let someone hold her, watch her for awhile. it'll be good for both of you :)
