We have come to an impasse about his annual trip to Las Vegas with the boys. His annual trip in mid-March during March madness.
Let me break this down for you. I will give birth to our second child sometime at the end of the 2010/beginning of 2011. I will most likely be on maternity leave for eight weeks putting me back at work sometime at the end of February, possibly early March.
Sooooo ... I will be back at work less than a month when he wants to go to Vegas, leaving me with a newborn and toddler for four days while I try to work full time.
Our schedules are set up so that we use the sitter as little as possible so this would mean that the kids would have to be there for 10 plus hours each day. I could try to take off but would not feel right about it since I will have JUST come back from maternity leave.
To accomplish this with no one losing any sanity, we'd have to call in grandparents, who would probably need to take time off from work to help.
What do you think? Am I being silly by asking him not to go or is he silly for planning to go?
By the way, he OK'd this post on the condition that I tell you he had to buy his own Father's Day present a week after Father's Day. (This happened because he changed his mind about what he wanted the day before, leaving me without any ideas. In my defense, I did make sure that my parents and his mom got him something he wanted.)
