I’m trying to plan a trip to see my friend who lives out of state. Not so easy as when I was single or only had one or two children.
Things I have to think about: Can my hubby take the time off? There is no, “hey, do you mind watching my toddler all day and picking up the other two from school” for something like this, especially when we just went on our Gat trip. Can I handle lugging a four month old around an airport, with my luggage going through security and changing planes? Can we afford it? Is this good use of our money? Will the kids be okay? Will I be a horrible grump when I get home and have the kids here all week for Fall break the day I get back?
A lot of the same stuff, but it feels heavier because of the responsibility of four children. I’ll leave behind three for my hubby to take care of by himself when he’s used to me being here to help out. It’s a lot to ask. I’m grateful to have a husband willing to watch the kiddos for me while I jet off to see my friend!
