I work for a small business from home and our Christmas Party is December 12th. We've recently moved, so my husband and I would be staying with my bosses house afterwards rather than driving 3 hrs back home after the party.
We are temporarily living with my in laws until we can find a place that we like to rent. My mother in law would be taking care of my daughter when we are gone that night.
My problem is that I breastfeed and my baby almost completely refuses to take a bottle and she is nursed to sleep. Because I work from home she is used to me always being there. I don't ever go out because she loses her mind if I do, since day 1. Two weeks ago my husband and I went out to eat and had to come home early because my daughter was SO UPSET. It was terrible and I felt so bad. Her grandmother takes good care of her and I trust her completely but she is nervous about me leaving overnight too. I don't know what to do.
I'd really like to go to the party because I NEED A BREAK and I deserve one, I know you guys understand! If I can't go to the party overnight or at all, that is totally fine with me. I really wouldn't care. However, I would like to be able to go on a date with my husband or get my hair done without having to turn around and come back within an hour or two. What can I do? Thanks for your help!
