My sister is graduating in June. My parents and siblings are all going to be attending. I wasn't even thinking about going and I have told them that until a friend told me that she thinks I should go. Now I feel guilty about not going and seriously trying to consider going. Although I now have my own family, they are still my family and now feel guilty about missing out on this get-together.
My DD will be 17mos old in June. If I do go, that would be the first time I'll be apart from her for more than 1 day. The longest time has just been when she's at daycare. I won't take her with me since the flight is more than 6hrs. I can't imagine traveling that far alone with a toddler.
What do you think? Am I silly for feeling guilty if I don't go and be the only one missing in the family?
