My entire family (from my husband’s side) is planning our family vacation next summer. A total of about 15 people! Our vacations are known to be somewhat hectic, with so many people and so many different plans. The trip is scheduled to last for a week, visiting different locations.
In the beginning, it sounded perfect and I couldn’t wait! However, as my husband and I were discussing it, the inevitable question arose, will we take our then to be one-and-a-half year-old baby?
While this may sound silly to many, I am really having a difficult time making this decision. I have never been away from my baby for more than 4 hours, and the thought of leaving him for a week seems so scary. My heart races just thinking about it!
Of course, he will be under the care of my mother so the worry is not who I will leave him with but, how will I leave him?
The idea of travelling alone came from the crazy schedule, early departures and late night outings.”It will be better for him not to get dragged into all that,” my friends say. While I would really appreciate some “me” time, this seems like too much. I am really clueless as to what I should do and I need to decide as soon as possible.
Have you ever travelled without your baby? How was it?
