I am participating in Two Question Thursday at Self Sagacity.
I have enjoyed reading this blog every now and then because of the thought-provoking posts. Thursdays, she poses two questions to respond to and then gives the opportunity to link your own post, asking your own two questions.
My husband has implemented a plan that entails the two of us getting away for a brief holiday, about four times a year. These trips have no rules, except that they be just about the two of us.
Now that I am working, which is probably why we need these breaks, it seems I have a lot of logistics to work through to make even a weekend getaway happen. This says nothing about leaving my kids to fend for themselves.
This brings me to my questions. Question 1) How often do you get away with your spouse? Question 2) Do you find it useful to leave your kids behind for a couple of days while you get away with your husband?
For the record? I am a big fan of leaving the kids behind for a few days. Don’t get me wrong. I worry and think about them too much while we’re away. Still, I know this time apart is good for all of us. We have actually been doing this since the kids were just a few weeks old- as soon as Grandma was willing to take the kids. She is a good grandma!
We have had different phases of busy-ness in our life so going away hasn’t always had any routine regularity. Now that the kids are older and able to manage themselves while we are away, we can do this. I am so glad we are, too, because I can see how easy it is to get wrapped up in work or too involved in my kids’ daily life.
If you would like to answer my two questions, leave your answer in the comment field. Feel free to leave a link to your blog, too. Also, be sure to stop by Self Sagacity and see what everyone else is asking.
