Mommy’s Going on Vacation

I’m sitting at the airport in Portland. No kids. Just me and my honey. Can I tell you how weird this is? I keep feeling compelled to help other moms with their kids… As I write this I can hear the screams of a very unhappy baby in the ladies room.

My parents used to take us on family vacations as a kid, but they occasionally went off together too. I think that’s a good thing, though I remember thinking it was totally unfair then!

Moms and Dads- when was the last time you took a vacation without your kids? Where did you go? What did you do?

    3 years ago – my hubby and I got a week in Maui alone – then my parents joined us with our daughter for another week, then the three of us came home and they had a week of alone time. It was a great vacation and it might be time to do it again. With Grandma and Grandpa so close though, we do have more alone time than many parents. It is such a blessing.

    Our last vacation without the kids was this past Feb. Hubby and I went to Vegas for 10 days. He had a conference then we took a few extra days for ourselves. We also take mini-vacations to (one or two nights) Alyeska once or twice a year. Not to go skiing or hiking. We enjoy the alone time and the couples massage is not bad either!

    I’ll be going away for work next week, my first time away from Charlotte… while I know it’s going to be so hard for both of us, a part of me also looks forward to a few days of freedom when I dont have to wipe poopy butts or runny noses 🙂 Hope you enjoy your trip!
