  • Do your kids ever go and visit the grandparents on their own. My parents want Ben to come for a visit and he is just about 3 and I know he would have a great time, and it would give me some one on one time with Bradley which would be great, I am just worried how he will feel going to Grandma and Grandpa's on his own for like a week... If your kids do go, what age did they start going?

  • they haven't had time like that.
    Most they've gotten is a few hours with my mom while she babysat for part of a day. No overnight stuff without me and Dh, though.

    ah, well, when Sarah was a baby (like less than 1 I think) she spent the night with the ILS when DH and I went to a B&B that we were given a gift certificate for. And it hasn't been any time since then that I've let the ILs take care of Sarah and Andrew on their own because I simply can't trust them to follow the rules. (I can trust my mom, though)

  • They all take turns having weekends at camp with Grandma and Grandpa. I don't think I would send my 5 yo for more than 3 days; that is hers and my limit.
    She did go at 3 yo for a night or two max.

  • C has been going to grammie and pops for weekends since he was 2... and LOVES IT STILL! set him up to really enjoy time with them-- he has his 'room' there, etc...

    Now B wouldnt go until he was 4 just this past winter...

  • My DD didn't want any part of it until she was about 4 I think. She's been there maybe 4 times for a few days each time. The first time we stayed in a hotel down the street from them "just in case".
    Before she was 4 we had them come stay at our house for a night or two when we had things we needed to be at.

    She just spent last Tues, Weds and Thurs night with them and my MIL said on Thurs she started saying how much she missed me and that she knew she'd see me the next day. They have a great time together and she goes to the kids museum (sp?) and the zoo and the library.
