I’m going to be testing out some new potential “Weekly” posts…. First one up…. *Hot Topic* Friday! Where I share a hot topic, give my opinion and then see what ya’ll have to say about it!
~~~~~Mom’s going on Vacation~~~~~
So, a hot topic we are all hearing about this week, No! Not what went on in Vegas with Prince Harry!, but about a mom who is going on vacation. Not just because she’s going on vacation, but because she’s also a mother who is leaving her 10 week old baby behind! If you haven’t read her blog post on Mommyish you can read it HERE.
First off, who cares?! Second of all… think about it… 10 weeks = 2 1/2 months! Third, she’s leaving him with not just one, but two caregivers. Hubby actually has a friend who’s mother left him with a babysitter at 2 weeks to go on vacation! Now that is just ridiculous. I was nervous to leave my newborn with my husband while I went to the grocery store, lol. But I would be okay if she was 10 weeks. A lot of people have brought up the fact that most women go back to work when their baby is 6 weeks old. We don’t hear much about that.
Would I leave on vacation with my husband with a 10 week old baby at home? HECK NO! My oldest daughter is 7 years old and we have not been away from her for more than 12 hours. Now that I think of it, that is kinda bizarre. I did go on vacation with my mom and my daughter and was away from hubby for a few days, but our daughters have always been with one or the other. If we were to go on vacation, we would take our daughters with us.

Question: When was the first time you left your baby to go on vacation or to the spa. Where did you go? Who did you leave your baby with?
