My birthday is in the summer - I have always traveled for my birthday, within the country. My son has always been to young to go and enjoy it and remember it.
He's 5 now, and will be starting kindergarten in the fall - for my birthday, I really want to take him on a cruise with me. I'd really like for it to just be me and my son, however my husband has always wanted to go on a cruise.
I found one the week of my birthday its a 3 day Bahamas cruise and with gas to get to the departure port, spending money as recommended by the reviews and a little extra - I would only need about 800 for the two of us, or 1200 for 4.
I know financially it makes more sense to just go as a family, but ds and I never have this time alone anymore. I would love to drive down, just us, spend the cruise just us, maybe visit my aunt for a day or two and drive home together. It would be so much fun
However, I don't want to offend my husband. He and his daughter would love it as well - but I'd love for this one last mommy/son thing before the baby is born
My husband is welcome to take a trip with just his daughter - the problem is, he won't. He won't take the time to plan for it, save for it, talk to the people to make it happen, request the time from bm, etc. He just won't - then my SD misses out on a trip, because I didn't make it happen for her
Am I wrong? Do any of you take trips - just you and YOUR kids?
