My DH & I are celebrating our 1 year wedding anniversary in about 3 weeks! Our plans are to go to the beach & stay for 2 days (the weekend of our anniversary) and then drive back home. The beach is 4 1/2 maybe 5 hours away in traffic. My dd is 22 months old. She is RARELY away from me. I'm a sahm so she is very attached to me. I left her on my wedding night BUT I went to my moms house put her to sleep (around 830ish) went to hotel had my wedding night then was up @ 6 am to go get her lol & I was 5 miles down the road. She LOVES my mom & is also a big mawmaws girl. She has spent the night with her a couple times because she is @ the age now that she asks to go home with her :( makes me sad but anyways lol. She is never gone for more than maybe 10 hours. My DH wants to leave our dd with my mom the 2 days we are gone so we can have alone time. He says we didn't have a real honey moon & we never get to be just us 2 so that's why he wants to leave her. She's already been to the beach once this year and hated the sand but loves the pool of course & we have another family trip to the beach that she will be going to @ the end of August. This month is our first month of ttc baby #2 so soon I will be pregnant then we will have another child so this is really the only chance we have to do this for a while. I just hate the thought of being so far away :( but I know my husband and I need our alone time. Am I a horrible mom if I leave her? I still haven't decided 100% but leaning more towards leaving her. She hates to ride in the car anyways so that's 1 less thing she has to do. I guess we will see if I actually have the strength to do it lol. So what would you do if you were me?
