Do you take trips without your children?

My parents used to ditch us constantly for weeks on end to go on elaborate vacations and we got stuck with the camp site 3 miles down the road most of the time.

I don't travel without my kids, and I try to plan things I think they will enjoy. We were able to travel alone before we had kids and we will have that time again when they are grown.

Maybe I just feel so strongly about taking them everywhere because of the excessive nature of my parents' travel when I was young and dont know how to balance that.

  • I had my DD when I was a bit older, I guess you could say. So, I lived and travelled and went to all sorts of wonderful places. Now, I do not plan trips without her....with the exception every 6 months me and my high school girlfriends get together for a weekend to camp (girls only and no men allowed). I would feel very guilty if DH and I were off somewhere on vacation and little pooh was not with us.

  • Yep, hubby and I went to Mexico in Feb without the kids. It was wonderful! I wouldn't only travel without them, but we also need time for us, to focus on each other and our marriage, that's the core, the foundation of our family so we want and need to keep it strong. We do other trips with the kids, but sometimes it's nice to get away.
