  • she is 3.5.... Longest was her going to MIL's house Friday-Monday... She spends 1-2 nights there about once a month, maybe twice.. But she only spends the night with 2 people, my sister & my MIL.... We have never left her with anyone not family.. I have friends I could leave her with if I needed, but family has always been available.

  • A week. I was in the hospital in labor with our twins. They ended up staying in the NICU in a town an hour away, so my Husband and I stayed there until the twins could be transported to our hospital.

  • My older 2 kids spent 3 weeks with my in-laws when they were 17 months and 2 1/2 because I had a nervous breakdown. It was only supposed to be for a week or so but ended up being 3 weeks.
    My middle daughter spent a week with my in-laws when she was 22 months while me and hubby went on vacation (the older kids were almost 3 and 4).
    My youngest daughter is 4 and has never spent more than a few hours away from me (usually hanging out with my dad while I'm shopping...we've just never had the opportunity to go anywhere since she was born).
