Vacation Guilt Already.


We are going on our first week long adventure next month.

25 days from now.

To Maui.

We will be married 15 years in June and it's our anniversary trip.

We've been together nearly 20 years.


It still doesn't hide the fact that the week we are gone, we'll be missing alot.

A lot of kid stuff.

Like K's last day of preschool.


Like all 3 kids went to this preschool and this is our last child's last day there.

Her teachers are like family to us.

We'll miss her graduation program.

Her cute end of the year program where they sing adorable songs and smile big when they see you in the audience.

Maybe a parent in the class can Facetime it to me.  If I ever figure out how to do it on my phone.

Then DQ reminded me that it will be the first time in like 6 years that I'll be missing dance photos.  Where I stand around while the girls change in and out of their recital costumes and get photographed for about 4 hours. 

"Who will do K's hair?!  I'll be busy changing, and doing my own hair."

Grandma I guess.

For sure I'll have to buy all those photos now.

Way to guilt me kids.

Coach Hubby and I will also miss My Boy's last scheduled baseball game of the season. One of his assistant coaches, Grandpa T will be missing it too.

Super guilt on who will manage the team, but I'm confident someone will step up.  Probably one of the moms!

So sure, we go away and life will go on without us, and it will be just fine.

I hope.

I'll have to drown myself in Mai Tais to deal with the guilt, but I'm sure I will be okay.


I mean, how often can you say you rode a bike down a volcano?

    Stop feeling guilty!!!

    You need this trip for your marriage and your sanity. Hubby and I thrive on alone time which is very limited. It may sound selfish but we really enjoy traveling without the kids and try to at least squeeze in a weekend getaway without the kids once a year. We went to Maui for our honeymoon 3 years ago and it was the most amazing trip we have ever taken. We can't wait to go back!

    I wish I could tell you not to feel guilty, but I can't tell you the last time I spent a night away from my kids, let alone going on a trip without them. Granted, I'm mom to much younger kids, but still.
    Have a great trip!!

    I know it's seems hard not to feel quilty, but in the long run it will be better for both of you to unwind to be able to better cope with the day to day routines. We all need a break!! Happy Anniversary, enjoy yourselves.
