Adam and I go on vacation together every year. It’s only one week out of the year, but it’s OUR week. The week belongs to no one else. It’s a time for the two of us to reconnect and rekindle our romance. We get to relax, enjoy each other’s company and forget about the stress that comes with working, owning a home, being a parent, etc. We truly enjoy getting away — just the two of us — and we both feel that it does wonders for our relationship and our marriage.
Do I feel guilty for leaving the kids to take a week’s vacation with my husband? No.
Should I feel guilty for leaving the kids to take a week’s vacation with my husband? No.
I love my children, but I also love having that time for myself and the hubby. Trust me, if you work for your husband (as I do) you need all the reconnecting and rekindling you can get!
