My Husband is about 200 miles from home for the weekend, and he can't come home. I would love to see him but we can't afford to get a hotel room so I was just going to stay in his truck with him. My only problem is our 14, almost 15 yr old son. He would have to stay home if I went, and I'm feeling bad about it. I would be home by 4pm on Sunday. What do you all think? We don't really celebrate the Easter holiday, and he's 14 so he doesn't do the egg hunts etc. He's been grounded for his grades on his mid-term report card, so he's not allowed to do anything this weekend anyway. We have 2 big dogs at home, and we have friends, neighbors that he could call if he needed anything. I will also be checking in with him off and on all day tomorrow. So should I go, or stay at home with him? I would be leaving in an hour or so if I went, and then leave Sunday Morning and head back home. I don't know what to do. He has spent a weekend home like this before, but being a holiday weekend, I'm feeling bad about it..... Thanks Ladies, for any and all answers, and advice.

In my opinion, I don't believe 14 or 15 yr olds should be left home alone by themselves especially if they aren't mature enough to get good grades in school. If they aren't mature enough to handle school, they aren't mature enough to handle being home by themselves. I think you need to really take your boys'maturity levels into consideration here. Not all 14 & 15 yr old are able to be left alone like that. Also it is a little selfish to be leaving your kids at home by themselves to go spend time w your DH. I mean if they were older like 17 or 18 than yeah I'd say go, but 14 & 15... they still need a lot of guidance. Sorry Hun, I gotta agree w Babybugsmama... kiss your hub tell him you love him & you will see him Sunday. Take Care.
