View Full Version : Taking the Kids
I was just wondering if any of you took your children on your honeymoon?
DF and I don't like the idea of getting someone else to look after DS1 & DS2. DS1 will be trning 3 shortly after we get married so we thought that we could have a family holiday instead. Does that make sense?
We didnt have an extended honeymoon - we spent 2 nights in a nice hotel in the City - without the kids. My parents had them, which meant that we could enjoy ourselves (iykwim :D :p ), but also knew that they were only 15km away if we were needed.
Honestly, those two nights (our wedding night included in that) felt like a week - it was so nice to have just the two of us, and relish in the newlywed feeling without being parents.
If you do the family holiday, it wont feel like a celebration of your wedding I dont think - just a family holiday at the same time.
good luck with your decision!
ETA - DS was 3 yrs old and DD was 18 mths at the time.
We took Toby to fiji:) It was lovely:)
We are having four nights after the wedding at a hotel locally with DD then are having our honeymoon (8 nights) without her.. We will miss her like crazy but we really want the experience...
We aren't taking ours with us! I can't imagine it being a 'honeymoon' with all the kids it would be just a normal holiday :D
Yes, we will be taking DS with us.
The novelty hasn't worn off yet and I am still breastfeeding so he will be coming with us.
One of the perks of being born before your parents get married I suppose!
