So my boyfriend(not my child's father) wants me to go with him to NYC for Christmas and he wants me to meet his family. We live in different states right now. So I'm leaving my 3yr old with my mom. And leaving a few days before Christmas and I won't be back until 2-3days after Christmas. I'll be gone about a week or so. My child is only 3yrs old so I don't think they will remember this Christmas and really it's not a big deal. My mom loves to spoil her only Grandchild and Santa will still come. Santa will just come 2x. Once with Grandma and once with Mommy. My mom will let my kiddo open presents from her and a few from Santa including the stocking and we will do my presents and the rest of Santa's when I come home. I'll still call but I just won't be home with my kiddo.
