Time away from baby??

I have never left him overnight (actually not at all) and don't plan to for a long time.
But I have reasons. We left my oldest DD with my parents when she was 9 months old and went on vacation for 3-4 days. She was 100% fine while we were gone, but when we got back, we expected her to be excited to see us, but it was the complete opposite. She wanted nothing to do with us for nearly a week. It was awful. I think in her baby-mind she felt we abandoned her and didn't know when or even if we will be back. It really left an impact on me & I can't do that to another child. But that's just me, not saying every baby will act this way.
So basically when I can say to him, "We will be gone for 2 days and then we will pick you up." and he understands that completely, that is the only time I'll consider leaving him. But DH and I both agree that vacations without the kids are not our thing!!!
