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.
