[name]Hi[/name] ladies, I have a huge dilemma going on inside my brain at the minute!!
My very best friend in the whole word is turning 21 in june and has asked me to go on a girly holiday with her and another of our friends. We’d be staying in the same country (UK) but would be about 8 hours drive away and would be going by plane to [name]London[/name]. She wants to go for five days and do theatre trip etc etc.
I really would love to go with her, but do you think it is okay to leave DD for that long?? She will be 8 mos. when we go and I have been weaning her onto bottle feeds for the past few weeks ready for going back to work so she wont be relying on b/feeding. If I went I would be leaving her with my dad who has said he is more than happy to watch her while I have some fun.
I feel really guilty spending the money though, like i’m a bad person spending money I could be putting aside for her future on a holiday.
Would any of you take the chance and go on the trip, or would you stay home? Best friend has two DD herself who she is leaving with her dad so I know I wouldn’t be the only one doing it, just don’t want people thinking we’re bad mums or more bothered about ourselves than our kids?
