For me?

Way too long. I'd die in a week without my babies.


Not really, but you see what I mean.

In my opinion, a month is an awfully long time for a two year old.  I would try first for a few days and work up to it.

Oh no. Too long :(. My two yr would get sooo grumpy after just three or four days with her grandma and when she came home she would be awful!

NO way.   A two year old is still a BABY.   They are not old enough to completely understand it is a just  "a visit" .. I would NOT allow a child that young to to go MIL's. No   Tell them- when she is older.

Way too long. Maybe a week but I couldn't be seperated from my kid that long.

Nope.  Maybe a week.  She could file for abandonment unless you have it in writing that's only a vacation, too.  Not going to happen and especially not at that age.  It actually can make you look bad -even if you trust her.  You just never know.

Two weeks at the most but even that seems a tad long.

I wouldn't let my 2-year old be away from me for a month.
