Time to let go

I have mentioned this a time or DOZEN that if I could I would wrap my babies in bubble wrap. I love them so much and I don't want them getting hurt - but since I can't I try to keep my eyes on them at all times.

Since birth I have not taken a shower with out my babies either sitting in a bouncer outside my shower,  blankets on the floor and a DVD in. But now they are 5 1/2 and 4 1/2 and it seems that they shouldn't be by me while I am showering. So I have used the computer and tv to entertain them - they are in side and most of the time contained while I quickly shower.

Well today I worked out midday and needed a shower and it was beautiful outside - the boy begged to play in our backyard instead of watch the movie I offered up. I reluctantly said yes but left my bathroom window open and yelled for him every several minutes to see if he was okay.

Is it time to let go of this and let them be? Am I the only crazy parent that still doesn't want them out of my sight - now don't get me wrong they normally play outside while I am inside I was just worried because I was in the shower and what if he got hurt?

How do you handle this?

Am I alone on my craziness?

  1. No, you're not alone girl. It's finding a balance that is comfortable for you. It will come with growth and experience and you will look back and think- why didn't I do this sooner?
