I could stay home and never go out because so many things terrify me. I could keep my daughters constantly at my side. I could say no to opportunities for travel and growth because I am too afraid to leave my daughters for what seems like an eternity. I could let fear get the best of me every time, but I don’t. Instead I am very picky about what I say yes to if it is going to take me away from my family and if I say yes, I know I’m leaving my daughters in the safest care possible.
I write this post from a plane. I’ve been gone from my daughters for over five days, the longest we’ve ever been apart. My body aches to hold them, my ears yearn to hear them, I will cover them in kisses until they push me away to make up for the days we’ve been apart. I’m not going to lie, I feel all kinds of guilt when I travel without them, but I’m able to do it because I know they are in safe hands. Their abuela, my mother, was kind enough to care for them during the days I traveled and while my husband worked. I handed over my car keys to her so that she could drive my babies where they needed to go. I trust that my mother drove them with care because she is fully aware of how precious they are, but accidents happen even when you are careful.

Joyfully, no accidents happened. My mother did get a parking ticket, which I will happily pay. At $100 the parking ticket seems cheap considering she cared for my babies and kept them safe. I’m grateful. I’m grateful for my mother’s help, I’m also grateful that I knew no matter what happened that my little girls were strapped into the safest car seats available. I work hard for opportunities as a blogger and my hard work led to an ambassadorship with Britax,
makers of peace of mind and safety top notch car seats. I love my mother and trust her very much, but when she is driving my children around I trust her more because I trust that Britax car seats are helping her keep my babies safe.
