Some good friends of ours asked if DH and I would be interested in taking a cruise with them next February (2013) which sounds REALLY exciting, but also like a big mess! If we go it would mean leaving Izzy with someone (MIL and SIL, or possibly my mom) for 7-10 days. There's part of me that wants to look into it and start saving/planning, but there's another part that says "you can't leave your baby for that long!" We don't have to decide right away, but I know the sooner we make a decision, the sooner we can start planning who would watch Izzy and the sooner we can try to set aside some extra money.
What do you girls think? Is 2.5 years too young to leave her with someone for that long? If we were to go on a trip without her, does that make us bad parents?
