Getaway weekends

Thomas has just turned four and until last year September, we were terrified of taking ‘the baby’ on weekends away. Because so much can go wrong and all his doctors and the hospitals are here in town.

What if ‘the baby’ needs urgent medical attention and we don’t get back to town in time? Also the baby had so much paraphernalia to drag along, we didn’t know what to take and what to leave.

A good friend of mine is always off on a weekend and has always tried to drag us along and we of course always used the ‘the baby’ excuse. And everytime she came back and showed us the pic, we were green with envy.

Last year in September she finally told us to get a grip because ‘the baby’ was 3,5 yrs old and no longer needed to be wrapped in cotton. We went and boy did we have fun, especially ‘the baby’.

We’ve been on a few other getaways and been loving it.

This weekend we went back to our first getaway place and took DH’s family along. It was great fun for us, not so sure if our guests liked it, but different strokes for different folks, eh?

    Its strange how we use the ‘babies’ as excuses, just because we are afraid of how it will go! We have our 1st week away in a month. Borrowing a trailer to make sure we pack everything!! πŸ™‚

    Hehe, I know that excuse so well. We’ve only just started going out in the evenings with Liam. We joke that he’s never seen the street lights on before and he was absolutely chuffed seeing the xmas lights. Hehe, what we do to our kids hey?

    We just came back from a weekend away, the “baby’ in our house loves them so much that she always begs us to stayat our “new” house and not go back home πŸ˜‰

    Glad you had a good weekend away. Please recommend any child-friendly places not too far away and that don’t cost a king’s ransom.
