  • Not a thing. I've done it before and left him with all 3 kids. He handled it nicely. :)

  • Let's see - last time I left my husband and children at home while I went to a state twins convention - the house was actually cleaner then when I left.

  • We take vacations together but there was one time that I went to Italy for the weekend with my neighbor. Her husband and my husband stayed home. They drank a lot and played video games a lot, but they had everything cleaned up by time we were home. I didn't think nothing of leaving him alone by himself. He is an adult and knows right from wrong.

  • I've never left my hub to go on a vacation w/o him and the kids. I've left to go to 2 funerals, but I would definitely NOT call them vacations (going somewhere to ball your eyes out is NOT fun, especially when its someone you'd have thought would at least have a few more years left in him). I did wonder how he and the kids were, and I would call frequently to make sure the kids didn't kill him :P

    Now, I've gone on vacations while he was deployed, but that's a different story.

  • I've left him with kids for business trips and all was fine. I have no desire to take a vacation without him. I wish my Mom was still in good enough health to watch my grandkids so we could get away a few days without them :)

  • Last time I left my husband at home by himself, I came back to the nasty looking apartment. Flies everywhere dirty dishes, vomit all over the floor cause he had a party. Never doing it again.

  • Every year my rainbow warrior sisters and I (A group of super close girlfriends) go on a girls only camping trip for a few days. I imagine my boyfriend spending most of his time playing computer games. Sometimes I do wonder about him going to the bars and getting drunk and acting inappropriate with the females. I try really hard not to let my mind go there, but he has had faithful problems before while drinking... but I dont let it ruin my time :) I love my camping weekend!!

  • Nothing. I'm enjoying my vacation lol. (I call him & visa versa throughout the day so it's good.) I don't worry unless he gives me a reason to!
