  • I don't know what I would do, my girls are gone for a day and I am lost so a week would be too long for me, I love breaks but love being with my kids more.

  • Every summer my mom is off the first 2 weeks in July. Both my girls go to "Camp Grandma" for those 2 weeks with the exception of the weekend when they come back home to spend it with me & DH. In those 2 weeks I actually meet up with them for lunch one day, we go to the zoo and we'll do one or 2 other outings. My mom loves taking them and I like going with them too. Anyway, with the rest of the days I usually take a couple days to myself - sleep in, go shopping, lunch or dinner with friends....just take time for me. I also take a couple days and do a MAJOR cleaning on the house. I get into every little corner, move furniture, declutter. It's great because everything I clean stays look perfect for awhile before my girls get back home.

  • My parents take our DD for about 5 days twice a year, calling it Nana Camp. My two nieces also stay and they have a blast.

    DH and I work full time, but we usually take off a little time and go places we don't normally take her since she's 5, like art museums. Last summer we went to the Biltmore estate.

  • They have. We worked. That is why they'd had him. No school but still have to work. Was a bummer. But so it goes. Now we will not allow my on laws to have him alone. But that is a whole different story.

  • Sleep! 7 whole days without having to get up at 5:30, yayy!
    I'd got to the movies with DH and to dinner. Play on my computer with no interruptions, lol

  • have crazy, loud sex while on vacation;)

  • There's no point in me speculating, it's just not going to happen. Neither side is up to looking after them (but only because their 80+). OTOH, they've never even taken them for a night nor babysat them even when they were younger (my daughters are now 10) so why should they start now ...
