    Default Would you go overseas without family?

    Seriously, you.should.go! ✈️

    My Mum did a similar thing with her bestie when my siblings and I were similar ages to yours and we don't really remember it, but I remember it being a fun time with Dad fully in charge which was a change.

    I wouldn't - in fact I just turned down an international trip for work which didn't go down well - but that is just me being anxious. I really don't like doing anywhere that I can't come home easily (ie drive) if needed.

    I would. They will be with their dad so I dont see the problem.
    I would make sure I had a wifi connection and skype/facetime.

    Yes you are going to miss them but even mums deserve to do something for themselves and have some kid free fun

    yep I would definitely do it.

    DH and I went away when DD was young (left her with Grandma) and it was fabulous. Of course I missed her - I missed her heaps - but it was also great to be away and have that time to myself as well

    I went this year for my first trip OS for 16 days. My mum took annual leave while I was away to look after my 9yr old for me. I don't have a partner to help hence why mum helped.

    I wouldn't have any hesitation in doing it again either.

    I couldn't. I'm away from my kids for a week at the moment, 300kms away, for training and it's already so hard on me. I couldn't go overseas.

    We (DH & I) did it recently, left the kids (2y & 3.5y) with my Mum, they had a ball, we FaceTimed every day & I checked in every day, it was only 3 nights & to be completely honest I didn't miss them like I thought I would, I think the need for a break out weighed missing them, if that makes sense, I haven't been away from the kids other than overnight (for a wedding) so the rest was needed... we where celebrating our 5th wedding anniversary which I think is important as it helps our relationship to stay strong.

    The other thing is, with your hubby looking after the kids they'll be fine, I trust my Mum with my knowledge DS probably as much as I do DH & I think the kids can feel that, so they are happy & comfortable with her

    And would I travel by myself (with friends) absolutely, the opportunity hasn't come up (yet) but I'd go in a heartbeat especially if DH has given his blessing & support towards it, you sound like you deserve it!
