Wednesday my husband and I are leaving to go to the keys for 5 days. We are leaving our 2.5 yo with my mil. But I'm scared to death of leaving him because I don't know how he will handle his mommy and daddy raving for that long. I'm so worried. Have you eve left your young child like this?

    My mom watched my child for 3 days once, while DH and I went on a mini-vacay. 

    It's not too bad. Just call every morning, and once at night - let him know you love him and will be back soon. He's little, he won't mind.

    You say you're worried how he will do - he will do well. What you are really worried about is how YOU will do without your child.

    The longest I've been away from my baby is when she goes with my aunt for the night.

    You are probably right I've never been way from him for this long before

    I'm sure it will be harder for you then him. The longest I've been away from my son is 2nights. That was hard. I miss him even when I just go in a date night with the hubby. But you'll get through it, bring pictures. And call him during the day.

    Yeah, when my husband and I got married we went to Vegas for 3 days on our honeymoon and our daughter was 9 months old. It was the first time we left her like that. Then about 2 years ago we when to Tahoe for dhs Christmas work party.

    My mom and dad took my DS for three days out of state when he was 14 months.
