Talk to me about this...
I'm a part-time grad student, I teach full time, and I share equal visitation with my x. My son is four.
This summer, for three weeks, I'm going to the British Isles for a study abroad program with my university. My son will be with his dad or with my sister.
I was away for two weeks last summer studying in the southwest, but three weeks seems so much longer.
I'm having so much guilt over this. I know he'll be ok. He's close with his dad and with my sister, but I'm feeling guilty about being away from him. Selfish. Am I crazy for doing this?
I keep telling myself I'll have plenty of time with him after I get back because I'll be off with him for five more weeks and we'll have all day together, but I'm stressing about this so much, I'm barely looking forward to the trip, which I've been wanting to do for 8 years now.
Do I suck?
