    Default Is it fair to push for this?

    Travelling is a great goal to have... When your kid/s are older could you leave them with someone for a few weeks while you pop accross to Europe? Or were you looking at a longer trip?

    I have no idea tbh VP - but nobody would be able/willing to have them (everyone works, my Mum would be it and she's getting too old for that anyway... nobody else is trustworthy enough), and I'd prefer the option to have them come along... but just not as kids. I've done trips with kids... it's not a holiday, it's hard work. lol. I also suspect I'd just miss them... and that would ruin the trip anyway.

    My Dad went to Europe for a month when I was about 16. I could have gone and enjoyed it and it would have been a good experience. I'd like for my kids to have the option to come along... at an age where they wouldn't make the whole thing dreadfully stressful, and where they could enjoy the experience too.

    It's not just about that though... I suppose it's about being able to do whatever I want, without having to factor my kids into it.

    I dunno, the way it's panning out, I'm going to be the mother of a child too young to leave at home unaccompanied for at least 20 years of my life... and the idea of making it even longer than that sounds... undesirable. I can't imagine because in my 40s and having to look after a young child... not when I've been doing it since 19...
