Dh and i are goin to Vegas in 2 weeks with his company. We'll be gone from the 4th through the 8th. We have to be at the airport at like 5am which is an hour+ away, on the 4th so the kids are staying with their gparents the night before we leave also. So that makes 5 nights away from my babies :( Im dreading being away from them (specially the youngest) and i feel like a real shit head of a mom leavin my kids for that long. This is something we may never have the opportunity to do again and i do want to go, but i still feel awful about it. The company is paying airfare, hotel, 1 meal/day, a trip to the Hoover Dam, a cocktail party, plus the convention and a bus pass to get to and from the covention center. An opportunity like that may not ever come around again. Plus the convention has to do with dhs job. I just cant shake feeling like a shit! Am i a shit honestly??
-kids are sd9 (will be between my mil and my mom m night through f after school then her mom gets her for the wknd), ds8 and ds6 (theyl be stayin at mils overnight and my moms after school along with sd), and ds4 who will be staying with my mom the majority of the whole time.
