Tomorrow starts me and my husbands vacation/ second honey moon. We are leaving our kids for three days. I've been away from my daughter before but never from my son, I know I, going to miss them both so every much. It nearly killed me being away form my daughter for 4 weeks. I hope both behave every well. Today we brought over the pack n play for my son, his pillow he sleeps on in it when he is at my parents house. Then my daughters little sofa that she sleeps on at my parents house. A box with ther diapers/pull ups, formula, three bottles, baby food, there medication, my daughters pillow and blanket. Tomorrow whe we drop the kids off we will give my mother in law papers on the kids routine, doctor info if needed, foods to avoide, bed routine and bath time routine. My daughter sleeps over once a week at my parents house so she is use to that and the rest of there sleeping stuff with there clothes. Of course we are leaving one high chair and there car seats. When your leave your kids for a good couple of days what do you pack them and make sure that they need? What is the longest period of time you have been away from one or all of you kids?

Good that you will have your vacation or honeymoon with your husband. Have a great time and have fun to both of you. But sad you have to leave your children. For me the longest time that I am away from mu baby is 8 hours hahaha. That's true, that was the time I went to salon and got my hair rebond after getting rebond I go shopping and eat. I can't leave my son in a few days.

Wow, that's great go on a second honeymoon Savor and enjoy...=) And about the children, i'm sure they will be just fine since they are use with their grandnie's.. I appreciate how you handle that situation, because i cannot leave my daughter for many hours with someone else, like when i have to buy somthing and my husband is away also i have to monitor the her, can't imagine leaving her i would miss her very much and i would be worried all throughout that i wasn't by her side...

They did okay. I was worried about my son because he hasn't been away from me over night yet and I normally don't leave him over night and wouldn't till he is sleeping through the night. They had a food time and we had a good. As long as I was busy I didn't miss them nor worry about them.

It was when my eldest son when he was only 2 years old when we left him under the care of my inlaws. My husband and I had to go to visit his uncle on the southern part of the country to have a 4-day visit. It was fun to be away from home but of course, there is always the worrying about how my son would be without me. Since we were still living with my inlaws that time, my sisters inlaw knew what to do in taking care of my son.

Hi sky First let me wish you and your honey a great second honeymoon..secondly I can remember how awful it is to leave your children especially when they are small..You will think about them very often...I am sure your parents will enjoy them very much..SO at least you will not have to worry about them being mistreated or anything like that which should give you great peace of mind..try not to call them to often so you won't have to hear them cry from missing you guys,,,and then you will start to cry...LOL..anyway have a great time....

You must have misread. My kids where not with my parents they where with my mother in law and my husbands step dad. My daughter normally stays with my parents on Wednesdays. I don't like leaving my kids for two long. I had my daughter away from for month I cried a lot three days is shorter. I missed them the second I left my mother laws that morning because I knew I wouldn't be seeing them for at least 1 hole day. We did have a good time thankfully I didn't cry. I wanted two but we stayed busy so that way we weren't to sad or worried. I'm assuming they had fun. They where so very happy to see us this afternoon. Some times my daughter cries when I leave but for the most part she'll tell me buy and see me later when she wants to stay some places. I did miss them tomes and brought them something back.
