  • I live in OHIO where it is cold, crappy, and depressing. We have a super-small family who actually care about us... MIL, FIL, crazy Aunt, SIL, my mother, and mayyyyybe mike's aunt and uncle. They have all seen the baby except sil.

    SIL is single, in law school, and lives in FL. Over the past 2-3 years, she has become very involved in the kids' lives. She has not seen the baby and won't be able to probably until Christmas.

    I want to take Brady down to see her for a few days. We are trying to not do stupid stuff with our money, but she is one of the few people who has taken an interest in the kids. My 2 brothers live very nearby and neither has bothered to even congratulate us, let alone visit. I think I could fly round trip for $300, and plus whatever it would cost me to eat. I wouldn't need a car, and I don't want to do any "entertainment," just hang out and maybe walk on the beach.

    So of course I'd love to go down and escape this weather for a few days, but also I'd love for SIL to get to see Brady before he's not a tiny baby anymore. I don't think she'll have kids of her own (she's my age) so the kids have become very special to her.

    So I'm ready for you to tell me no. I can take it

    Oh, and I should add that Brady is a very good baby, and we're bf'ing so no bottles or anything to worry about.

  • For $300 I'd jump on the plane! That's really cheap and he's only little once! And you've been so down lately. Think of it as therapy too! I know all about trying to pinch pennies and such, but if you can swing it I'd totally go if its going to be so little!

  • Go for it. So it would be just you and the baby I'm assuming? Not too stressful for a few days.

  • I agree with Laura; this may just what you need!

  • I'm with the ladies--book that flight, girl!!
    And remember to take photos for me since I'll be stuck in Ohio while you're gone.
