So today was the first time I went out and left my baby with a babysitter. She is 12 months old (only just) and I had a few things to do today which meant I just couldn’t take her. I have a family friend with a 16 year old daughter who I know to be very responsible, so I asked her to babysit. The temptation to text her every 20 minutes to make sure my baby was OK was huge! My little one is so easygoing, that nothing much upsets her. And when I got home, sure enough she had a huge smile on her face, so all was good. But I’ve never been so stressed, and never had my mind turn to my little one so frequently as I did today. Tell me it gets easier?
