Almost thou hast persuaded me...


Thanks to everyone who weighed in on my parenting quandries. You gave me several good ideas for dealing with tantrums, and I'm feeling a little more prepared for our next round of screaming hissies in Wal-Mart.

On the other hand...I'm afraid I'll be staying here at home when Hubby goes to Minnesota. Sorry, Lisa, I would love to have met you and your family. I really was looking forward to it. I know all of you said I should go with him, but the childcare issue here is a little more complicated now. One grandma thinks the kids are too young to be left without Mommy for that long, and the other has a brand-new granddaughter, and I know she'll be wanting to help her daughter and the new big sister.

It's just not fair to everyone who wouldn't be going. I guess maybe in a few years...who knows. I'm trying not to be a big baby about it myself, so I'll just leave it at that.

Well, I don't think they're too young, to be without you for 1 week. Especially with all the family you've got there. My side would have found a way to make it work,knowing how much a break was needed. But that's just my opinion.

I don't think they are too young. Little King is about to spend 3-4 days without me, and with his Grandma when I'm in the hospital with a c-section. There isn't really much of a difference...
...and my friends baby was in the hospital for well over one week and her other son (2 yrs) stayed home, with different friends/family caring for him during the whole time....

I think you should come with the kids! Drive through the night! We have a free zoo, and I have free tickets to the Minnesota Zoo.
We used to travel with Donnie when the kids were little, it wasn't an easy trip all the time, but it makes for great family memories.

You're being a good sport--hard to be left behind.

I wonder what in the world Bramblerose means by, "My side"?
Is there some kind of competition going on? :-)
