Taking a trip sans kid
Posted January 4, 2011on:
Big T and I are planning a getaway this Spring. Due to financial issues we weren’t able to take a honeymoon after we got married in 2006. As a reward from my job, we have an opportunity to stay at a resort for 5 nights and only have to worry about flight, food, and incidentals. We’ve picked the location but we’ve gone back and forth about taking Li’l T with us. I’ll be honest and say that I’m torn sometimes. We could REALLY use this time away alone but I know I’ll miss the little one. The plan is to send him down South with family and the time we’ve chosen is also Spring Break for my nephew. I know he’ll be surrounded by family and have fun but a part of me can’t help thinking that we shouldn’t be apart for that long. But on the other hand, it would be heavenly to have some time out of our environment where we aren’t woken up at 6 am by a little voice. Or having to cut our evening short because it’s Li’l T’s bedtime. I know in the end we’ll go without him but I anticipate it being hard. Has anyone been in his situation? How did you deal with it?
