I am 26 and am planning to go on vacation to a different country without my 2 children. My Kids are almost 6 and 8 1/2.... I am a single mom who spends every second with my children, we took a vacation last october to the dells, nothing but kid times... it was fantastic I felt I needed a vacation FROM that vacation. I have recently had an invite to go to Amstradam- AMSTRADAM!!! , of course that'd be a no kid vacation! I have reasonable, responsable, adults to care for my children while I am away, I would be gone for 5 to 10 days.
What's your opinion? is it okay? is it fair, do i deserve it or am I being selfish?
Im kind of torn, because i feel i do indeed deserve this, but at the same time i havent spent more than a few nights away from my kids at a time, and we've always been in the same town... should I just plan a vacation including my children within the states? It's been so long since i've cut lose, let alone had such a great offer.... Im lost, torn and feel guilty...
