Re: should I let my dd go on vacation with my dh
To be honest, I have a hard time letting my three year old go anywhere without me. We are really attached, because my husband is gone most nights during the week. A year ago, I wouldn't even have considered leaving her for that length of time, but, lately, I'm finding a need a break, and if DH wasn't having problems right now, I would let him take her some place for three days to visit. I would definately have a hard time if it was any longer than that.
But, I have to disagree with the poster who said a three year old doesn't have the vocabulary to tell when something goes wrong. If something happens at the babysitter during the day, my daughter can and will tell me all about it. Or, if we are at the playground and someone is mean to her or something happens, she tells me, too. I definately think she's old enough to tell you if something were to happen. Besides, she's going with her father, not a stranger or just any family member.
