My oldest son starts prep next year. My husband who competes nationally in a sport wants us to travel interstate at the start of the school year for 3 weeks for a competition. I have told him that I won't be going because I think the start of prep is really important (making new friends, learning, orientation in the new school) but he thinks that I am being silly.
Not to mention, I hate these trips....my husband thinks it is family time but his team mates and events during the trips are very demanding on his time and we don't really spend time together at all. I am just left looking after two young kids in a motel the majority of the time.
What do you think??
