My hubby always has to do what he wants on vacation, but this year is diffrent- we had a baby and he is only 12 months old. My hubby wants to drive straight for 6 hours no stopping- which I told him we cant do- baby needs a diaper change and bottle and I need to stretch-bad back. We are meeting relatives and they want to stop and see sites along the way- my hubby doesnt- he said nobody wants to do what he wants and is being rude to me. He pitched a fit last time we went away and sat in hotel 1 day- cause he was outvoted to do something and I told him we would do his thing later- but he wouldnt go out. Im afraid he'll ruin our vacation with being immature- u see his Mom always gave him his own way and still does today- he can never be wrong. I really want to have a good time and we need to stop for the baby at times. He thinks vacations can be like before baby came and they cant. If u meet people u cant do it ur way.Answer Question

You guys need to go on a vacation without all the extra family members. Maybe a vacation w/ just you two & the baby would be nice. Think about it though, not sure how your work schedule is, but most people only get 1 maybe 2 GOOD vacations a year. I would be bummed if i took time off from work & ended up doing stuff that i did not like, & missing the things that i wanted to do. I would let my hubby do what he wanted, even if it meant me staying back w/ the family while he went & did what makes him happy on his vacation. I'm sure there has got to be some way you guys can compromise better. I certainly did not let having a baby ruin fun things that i wanted to do.
