Would you go?

My husband wants us to go to Paris for a week without the kids. The trip would be in Sept so the kids would be 4 yrs and 1.3 yrs old. My in-law would come to my house to stay with the kids. I sort of feel like they are still to young to be away from mommy and daddy for that long.

  • i know what your saying. but i kind of think that if your ever going to do it, you should do it while there younger rather then older. my mom went to paris when i was like 8 or 9, and left me with my grandma, and it was like really traumatizing and i will never forget it, lol. but i feel like with being as young as they are, they wont remember it, and they might just go with the flow yano. but it also depends on how much you trust your in law.
