Would you go to an all-girls gathering or similar vacation without DH?

My aunt hosts a "great girl's gathering" every year. And DH is invited per my aunt, however, he's ruined every vacation down there we've gone on for various reasons. And he knows this, and he's said that I can go but DD is staying with him [which wont happen esp. b/c she's never been away from me more then 6 hours I'm not going to leave her away for a whole WEEK]. And he says I wont be home for our anniversary - which isn't true. Am I wrong, should I just bit the bullet and say fine come, or should I just tell him tough luck and have a good time with DD and cousins/aunts? I mean we spend time cooking, scrapbooking, nature sites, art projects, girlie things - and he'd probably tag along, but then get upset b/c he'd rather be doing something else then hold it in and blow up, while I spend the whole time making excuses for him. [can you tell this isn't just a one-time thing but multiple times, where I'd almost rather not go then have him come].

Girl's VAY-CAY!! I see nothing wrong with it! My girlfriends and I are all planning a ladies weekend to Vegas and we are leaving the men and children behind!

I would totally go and not feel a bit bad about leaving dh behind. Why would he want to tag-along with the ladies anyway? I haven't gone on a week trip, but we did have an out of town girls weekend to Branson. I say go and leave his behind...behind.

I go to Branson once a year with friends, and leave the kids at home, I love it, and I think it is good for the kids. I have a hard time leaving the kids, as a matter of fact every year I cry once I get there and call home, but after that we have a great time. We all share a room and laugh and have a good time, it is a life saver, I think everyone needs a break.

With my kiddos being so young, I PERSONALLY couldnt do more than a one nighter thing, but when they get older (like maybe all at least school age) I'd LOVE to go on a girls vacation. I dont think there is anything wrong with others doing it when they got little kids either, I'M just saying I couldnt do it. Guys get to do it all the time it seems, why cant girls?

Hailey would be coming with me -- she's too little to leave for a week, even if it is with daddy. He just says, if he doesn't go then H stays at home with him. And his "excuse" is he'd miss her to much. FINE, I understand, but I want to have a good time, even if activities will be restricted with a 1 year old

But at least its nice to see other's would just go and let DH deal with it. As much as I would LIKE for him to go, its just always been a "girls" thing, even my uncle he's physically there...but he's not...if that makes sense. DH would want things to be focused around him/us [which I don't care for...each year somebody is the 'honoree' and its my cousin].

Me and my friends had an all-girl weekend last month. Our husbands are so wonderful they even stayed with the kids

I do things around town with my female friends (lunch, shopping, coffee-- though I don't drink it LOL, just hanging out for a couple hours) but I would not ever go on a vacation without my family.

I don't see anything wrong with it, it is just not something I'm interested in. I'd prefer to vacation with my husband and child.
