  • I'm not sure if I could do it... I would love some time with no kids but I would probably be sad the whole week without my daughter!

  • I couldn't do it til my son was over a year old. And then, it was only overnight or just a couple days. Now that he's almost 3, i think i could handle it as long as he was with someone i totally trusted!

  • It would depend on MIL. Has she kept the kids overnight or for extended periods of time before or just for a few hours? If she isn't in the practice of keeping them, then i wouldn't do it. If she does keep them regularly and overnight, AND I felt that they were safe with her, then I'd think about it. Free trip...no kids...sounds kind of nice.

    I would miss my kids and would have to call every so often but I would go for sure

  • If your MIL is trustworthy I see no reason not to.

  • I couldn't be away from my son for a week so for me personally... No I wouldn't, i'd take my son .. Myrtle Beach is extremely family friendly so why can't you take your kids?

    But then again if you're comfortable with doing it then I say go for it.

  • IT'S VERY HARD TO DO i KNOW .THE FIRST ALWAYS IS. BUT ONCE YOU DID IT. YOU BE GLAD YOU DID. ONLY BECAUSE BELIEVE IT OR NOT ONE NEEDS A BREAK FROM THE KIDS. NO MATTER HOW MUCH YOU LOVE BEING WITH THEM. IT'S TRUE THE FIRST TIME YOU LEAVE THEM YOU WILL MISS THEM . BUT REMEMBER IT'S ONLY FOR A LITTLE WHILE  YOU'LL  BE BACK SOON TO BE WITH THEM.
