Have you ever left your baby?

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
Wednesday my husband and I are leaving to go to the keys for 5 days. We are leaving our 2.5 yo with my mil. But I'm scared to death of leaving him because I don't know how he will handle his mommy and daddy raving for that long. I'm so worried. Have you eve left your young child like this?

Nope, and my oldest is 10 1/2 years old.  We enjoy taking our kids on vacation with us.  If we wanted to vacation without kids then we wouldn't have had any kids.

As long as he is close to MIL it should not be a problem.  Just make sure you have your phone on you.  have fun :)

DD has spent the night with my mom for 2 nights. I was used to just one night so by the second, I was missing her bad. But I knew she was in great hands so I didn't worry.

My dd was 5 the first time she spent one night away, and I jumped at the chance! Its not that I didn't want her to go sooner, that was our first chance.

I would have loved to take him with me but my husband's boss is paying for the trip so dh will have to work a little plus we are using ths as our honeymoon from when we got married 2 months ago

Yes. We left our 14 month old son with my parents for a week to go on a Disney cruise with dh's family in 2009. We knew it wouldn't work out taking a child that young on a cruise so they offered to watch him for a week. It was nice b/c we could focus on our then 4 year old son.

We left our daughter when she was 2 1/2 for 4 days to go to a wedding in Washington D.C. She had so much fun she barely noticed we were even gone. I think I did worse than her! haha
