Leave the Kids?

So the topic of whether or not we would leave our kids for a week to go on vacation came up. Leave for a week you say!? I haven't been away from them for more than 4 hours---are you kidding me? What would I do with myself? I think I would go nuts with nothing to do. Living the life of a M.O.M. you just get used to always having something to do. Like right now, the kids are asleep and I should be ironing but I am doing this instead. Ironing will wait. It's not going anywhere.

After discussing we decided we could not do this at this age. You miss too much in one week. These guys are changing by the minute! If you blink you just might miss something. We would, however, leave them for a long weekend but probably be thinking about them every second. It just isn't for us at this time. See me in a few years.

I feel the same way. I have a very hard time leaving mine for more than a few hours, let alone a few days.

I'm with you. Dh and I were debating whether or not we could handle overnight. I think that could be possible but we are limited as to who we could leave them with. BTW I know it is on another post but I'm glad your heat is working. See ya on the nest boards :)
