My SO has to go out of town on business. He is going to drive 8 hours the first day and stop and spend the night with our close friends (she is my BFF and he is friends with her husband). She has asked that my kids come along and spend a few days with them. I am all for it. My MIL isn't OK with this since he works for her. The thing is he is going to be traveling about 3 more hours north the day after he gets to our friends. My MIL seems to think that the kids are going to be a distraction for him (they won't even be with him). No matter how you look at it he has to drive through the town where our friends are, so would it be that bad for him to take the kids. Our friends want to see them and spend time with them, is it really that big of a deal to take them along? If I am not looking at this properly please let me know. I don't see the big deal and neither does my SO, but my MIL says it is a business trip and he needs to be focused.
BTW we would trust our children's lives with these people and they feel the same with their kids. We had one of their 3 for 2 weeks this summer.
