  • Next Friday DH and I are going on an 8 day silent retreat at a Zen Monastery. This is our 3rd time, but it has been just over a year since we last went. My mom comes to stay with Alex. I'm a bit nervous this time as Alex has such a better understanding of us leaving. So, I'm planning some activities for him while we are gone. We don't get to have ANY communication with him (or anyone unless it is an emergency) for a full 8 days
    The other days are travel, so at least we will get to talk to him on the phone. I'm thinking I might make him a book of some kind from us to read if he wants to. Anyone else have any cool ideas when they are away from their children?

  • we read alot to the boys-- so I taped myself reading a book when I had to travel
    they still like that!

    also- make a paper chain with the number of days that you'll be gone so he can remove one each day and better understand how long you'll be away!
