Leaving Your Kids at Home When Going on Vacation – Part 1

Video taken from the channel: The Real Daytime

The only thing better than a family vacation is a romantic getaway (minus the kids!) Let’s just come right out and say it: One of the biggest perks of vacationing without your kids is that the stuff that seems torturous when you’re on the road with them can be positively enjoyable when it’s just the two of you. No, a vacation is not a MUST for a parent to feel like they can survive. However, if you are the parent to an amazing, loving and supportive tribe of little people, then taking a break from reality, even if just for a day, a weekend, or a couples only getaway doesn’t make you a bad parent.

It makes you human. Vacationing without your kids allows you a little time (even if only for a few days) to gain back some of your identity that was lost after the kids were born. #10: You get to hear your own name And I mean your REAL name – I can’t stress enough how wonderful it is not hearing “Mom!” (or “Mooooommmmmyyyyy!!!”) for a few days. Yes, you can, and you should.” If you’re worried about leaving your kids or feel guilty at the prospect of taking time for yourself, please remind yourself that the best mom is a happy mom.

For me, being happy means I need time away to refuel, reset, and RELAX. 5 Reasons Why You Should Vacation Without Your Kids. April 12, 2017 March 6, 2019 / 1 Comment / On Instagram, Parenting and More / By Martha Herdendorf. This is a sponsored post.

Please say thank you to our post sponsor, Lovejoy Travel Agency! Where your destination begins. I know my trips have been good for them, too.

Time away helps your children gain independence. “It gives them an opportunity to practice being without you,” says Morin. John Cave Osborne and wife Caroline think it’s important to occasionally vacation without their five kids. Today.

A sunny beach, a cool drink, a. That Mom or Dad that finally decided that it was ok to travel without your kiddos. I know, you normally only do Family Travel nowaday. Either way you can plan on having zero alone time with your partner.

Family vacations stick the family together for the whole time. Parents need alone time too and taking a vacation without the kids is the perfect opportunity to reconnect. The chance to unwind, relax and do activities that you can’t do at home. Things to Do before You Go on Vacation without the Kids.

Leaving the children behind while you and your significant other head off for a week filled with kid free moments and dinners at tables with real cloth napkins, tablecloths and maybe even a vase full of flowers can be both an exciting and daunting event.

This is a good idea, because you won’t get another vacation without kids for a very long time (unless you can persuade the grandparents to babysit).

I did go on other trips with them, but I think that because it was the families, everyone would bring their children and we would stay there for a week or two.

We do not take vacations, we rarely visit with our other children and grandchildren who live a distance away due to my daughter’s dialysis needs, and even my ability to volunteer with various organizations (which was a much-loved social activity) has also been greatly diminished.

Vacations do take children out of their routine, but it is important to stretch and find your boundaries as a parent.

My parents never went on vacation without their four kids, which meant we had to stay in some really cheap motels.

If your children are not yet old enough to stay on their own, ask a relative or a close friend to host them for a day or two; chances are great that they will enjoy a getaway themselves!

We are not suggesting here that you eliminate the all-important vacations together, with or without children, but simply that you take an additional one for yourself alone.

Young ones thrive on the sense of security offered by familiar toys, beds, and foods, so try to prevent needing another vacation away from your child by making sure your preschooler knows that some of his favorite things (toys, blankets, clothes) will be near and that he’ll be included in the fun.

  • I do not understand those parents who leave their newborn at home to go on vacation, without them? In my opinion, that makes them the worst parents. I mean, is your newborn a joke to you?

  • Wow! They said it sounds crazy to travel in different planes in case something happens and they all don’t die, & look what happened to Kobe and his daughter. It doesn’t sound crazy at all now. �� RIP KOBE.

  • Ok… so when i have kids i’ll actually be going on vacation without any of them! Yes, we will have family vacations, but i’m an adult who enjoys adult activities, so i will be vacationing with my husband or with friends/family members without them. Once you are old enough to do the things i like then you are welcome to join me. Kids are a beautiful blessing, but I didn’t come into their lives, they came into mine.

  • I think when you have kids who aren’t close in age there can be different types of trips. Like taking the whole family to a theme park has a different feel then just taking the teenagers or just going with your spouse. The only thing I would feel weird about is if we were going out of state for a multi day vacation, it would feel weird just leaving the littles and taking the older kids.

  • I wouldn’t leave kid behind it’s not fair at all because when they get older they wouldn’t remember but probably would’ve been hurt cause you like forgot about them

  • You can take a toddler, but an infant no ma’am. They won’t even know what’s happening, they will just hinder you from enjoying the trip because they need so much care I’m sorry ����

  • I think it’s okay to have a vacation without your kids however taking some children and and leaving some behind is completely inappropriate

  • For me it would depend on who you’re leaving the baby with. If it’s with nana, I would do it. Baby gets loved on and the rest of the family gets to fully enjoy the trip. Best option is to bring grandma along to be on baby duty.

  • it called w break, all moms need them but it’s up to the mom. my mama took millions of breaks. I’m the oldest girl n I was like, ” ur at Walmart shopping n I gotta cook them lil bastards dinner, hell I need a break”

  • I really think it depends on the vacation. I’m the youngest of six kids and when I was growing up we always went camping and that’s not really suitable for babies when you need to sterilise their bottles and have space for their stroller, crib and toys. So my parents used to leave me with my grandmother when I was a baby until I started going camping when I was 3 years old. I’ve seen photos of my family having a good ol’ time while I was alone with Grandmama lol. But it doesn’t bother me because I was too young to remember it. I do see what Tamera means though. I’m not a parent myself but if I was I would be wary about leaving a baby to go on an overseas trip, it is a morbid thought, but it doesn’t bare thinking about how awful it would be for that baby if something happened to the whole family. Also what if you were overseas and the baby got sick. There’s a lot to consider.

  • When I was little my parents and my three older siblings went on a cruise without me and I stayed at my grandmas and I thought that it was a better vacation then going on a cruise and now I don’t regret that my parents made me stay at my grandmas house because I had a lot of fun.

  • Tamara said it right, despite her children’s ages, I would feel kinda guilty tbh if I didn’t bring one of my children while the rest could

  • Tamara you rather all your family dies ����. Nah. My baby will stay home so we can enjoy the vacation ����. If you can’t get on a roller coaster, then you aren’t coming ����‍♀️.

  • If you left me at home when I was 1 while my brother and my parents go on vacation I wouldn’t be mad now. Only because I wouldn’t even remember it if I did go anyways!

  • Leaving your baby at their grandparents house for a week or weekend isn’t out of the norm. Even if parents can’t afford to actually go somewhere, that 1 week or weekend out of the month is a vacation. Parents need to be healthy and right of mind to raise a healthy and right of mind child

  • Lol wait so because someone could die it’s best we all die together?! That’s even more reason to leave they little asses at home!!!

  • I don’t disagree with any of their points. I’m a mom of 2 young boys (1 & 4yrs) so I know how exhausting and hectic it is to go ANYWHERE with little ones. The smaller the child, the more exhausting lol
    I wouldn’t mind leaving my toddler with my mom while my hubby,older son and I go to a waterpark. Yet, I am the type of mom who needs to check on my child throughout the day so my mom would be getting phone calls lol
    Yet, I also agree with Tam, I want all my kids to experience things together as a family as well!
    I think it all comes down to circumstance and whether or not it would be too hectic to bring a baby to whatever place.
    But for sure I couldn’t go on a vacation where I would be gone for days and leave my child behind. No way.
    Now, when it comes to my actual personal situation, neither of us has many family members we trust who would take care of our children so we are pretty much used to going everywhere as a family and we’ve gotten pretty good at handling all types of situations anywhere lol

  • My husband and I always go to Disneyland with our friends and their kiddos. We’re at the age where we’ve done what we want so we enjoy taking the kids now

  • I don’t think she did anything wrong. Especially because they were not all babies. One was a baby and the other kids were older. Not having the baby with them would allow them to do more things older kids would want to do.

  • What’s important is having some free time. Being a parent 100% of the time is really hard mentally.
    Why are people shaming them? Do parents not have some off days? grandmother, aunt,… spending some time with their grandchild while the parents are having some quality time? why not have a few days?
    I really don’t see a problem with this.

  • My sister always goes on vacations and leaves me to babysit. She has 4 kids, I only have one and now he’s 15 and I never went anywhere without him. If he spends the night at my sisters I feel something missing at home and I worry.

  • You’re not being a bad mother if you leave a younger child behind. I love being a mother I’ve raised four kids but it’s hard work to have a baby in a theme park that can’t get on anything. Its hot sometimes lines are long, so I would if I could leave the child with the grandmother or someone I trust if possible if not I would just bring multiple people with me and I have did this so I can have fun and the baby can be happy too. I think sometimes people judge parents too hard where Humans 2 and you can have it all if you have the right crew with you if you have the right support system

  • I personally don’t think there’s anything wrong with leaving a child no matter the age at home with grandma so the parents can enjoy themselves once in a while. however, if you feel the need to leave them every other month because they “inconvenience” your fun then you have a problem and shouldn’t have kids if they bother you that much that you feel the need to leave them all the time and can’t include them in your little vacations ����‍♀️

  • It’s really great to see little ones who may not remember later, but truly believe in the magic they’re seeing. There are videos and pictures from when me or my brother were too young to remember the events, but the pictures and stories are still great to hear. My brother will never live down his two year old self telling Cinderella that he loved her, or me being scared to go up to Captain Hook because I believed the movie was real.

  • Personally, I wouldn’t travel until my children are old enough to enjoy it. Like 4 years old and it would be Disney. That’s as a family. My husband and I would go out of town as a couple without the kids but personally, I couldn’t leave my baby behind and take the other kids.

  • I don’t think you have to take your youngest baby if you want to be able to enjoy fun things with your older kids.. a baby won’t be able to remember anything so why waste the money.

  • I always think about that. What if my family goes somewhere and I don’t go and they all die.. that’s crazy. I’m glad I’m not the only one that thinks about that.

  • I have 2 kids a 7 yrs old n 4 year and too this point we still havent gone to disney or universal i want them to experience it get excited and remember.. We do other things but not big trips..

  • That mom is selfish. It’s a water park not Vegas. That trip should solely be for the kids. I’m pretty sure they at least have a kids pool for that toddler

  • First of all Tams kids are close in age. Its not like other families who have teens/preteens/6-10 yr olds and then a 10 month old baby. If the kid cant ride the rides or do the activities why take them and ruin the day for everyone else? Theyre babies. They wont remember the time the whole family went to the water park when they were 1 yr old. And i dont think its that serious that the kids will be hurt if they saw a picture of a family vacation where they werent there. I think tamera was being a little too serious about it.

  • Tameras kids are very close in age though, the story is about two older kids and a toddler. Im sure the parents would like to be engaged in the activities with their two kids rather than have to hang back and watch the baby.

  • Well tam,your kids are very close in age. This womans kids seem to be different age ranges. Situation is different. I have a 1yr old and a 7 year old. I couldnt enjoy disneyland with my 8 year old because my 1 yr old was WORK! Luckily my husband was able to get on the rides with my 8 year old. I spend most of the time in all of disney lands restrooms. Changing diapers and outfits ��

  • I love soty family YouTube sooo much and I have started watching soty unplugged and it’s mostly about the patents but it still sooooooo fun and hilarious

  • im like tamara, i wouldn’t want to leave my kid just because i’m like that. but i TOTALLY understand having to watch your kid or taking them somewhere they won’t enjoy at all. spending a day with her grandmother can be just as fun.

  • from the situation they talked about at the start the parents took the older kids to a water park and left the toddler at grandmas that makes sense to me. With a toddler at a water park you cant take yours eyes off of them and depending the age of the older kids you need to be near them too.

  • Adrienne with the whole “my sister does that, you sound like my sister.” NO…they sound like every MOM. That’s how you become she you’re a parent or take care of children for days at a time. You see things thru their eyes. Adrienne is that person that thinks babies are accessories and not actually mini developing human beings. This is why I have a hunch the universe isn’t letting her get pregnant yet bc she isn’t mentally ready. She only likes the idea and image of having a baby.

  • And it’s also a thought of being able to also give your older children one on one attention from the parents, which isn’t a bad thing

  • I have a little girl and sometimes I leave my husband and daughter at home �� we take family trips, couple trips and I take ME trips! We do it all! Lol as long as there is a balance and we’re all bonding while also getting personal time I see nothing wrong.

  • Water parks are dangerous. I wouldn’t take my baby with my 10 year old son. Call me a bad mom but I think it’s responsible. Or, I’d take a friend or in law to help with baby

  • When you leave your kids w/ someone please make sure they have everything they need ex Breast Milk Ext clothes etc So she put the baby to sleep Hungry ���� No wonder she gulped that bottle down the next morning

  • If you can leave the toddler at home with a trusted adult then do it. This is a perfect chance to bond with the older children. I dont see the problem.

  • I honestly think there’s nothing wrong! Mommys need breaks too. I left my baby girl w my mom two times already once I went a whole entire week to lake Tahoe. The second was a weekend for my birthday we went to last Vegas. Both times I didn’t take her because there was honestly nothing for her to do.

  • My little brother he’s 7 and he has Autism and sometimes my step mom, step sister and I always go to places without him. Only because he can’t handle lots of noise and crowds of people

  • Idk about this �� I only have a 3 year old son but if I had another baby idk if I could leave him behind and go on a fam vacation bcus it wouldn’t be complete �� we are actually taking my 3 year old to Disney for 3 days on his birthday and some say he’s to young to have fun and why are we wasting money but he remembers when we took him last year for Halloween and he always asks to go back so we’re excited

  • It really depends on the situation, it’s not all the time that you can bring all your family members but as much as possible you should all be together because a time spent with the family is very important for children growing up.


  • Y’all!! My grandma has done that finger thing before in a class of soda I had�� she said “girl if you don’t drink that damn thing, it’s not gone bite you”

  • If your not a parent you shouldn’t even comment. I use to say to myself heck yeh vacay from kiddos yeah why not. But once we became parents mannnn no way do I leave my kiddos behind. Each their own.

  • A THREE-MONTH OLD? No. I wouldn’t leave a three month old to take a vacation. I’d be breast-feeding, and that would not happen. I’d wait until they were weaned, at least. Maybe a one, or two day STAYCATION, leaving baby with one of our parents and lots of pumped bottles, but an actual VACATION? There’s no way in hell. Totally judging.

  • Wouldnt be able to leave my 3 month old to go on vacation. first of all, seems like she had a vaginal birth because at 3 months, I was still in pain from my c-section lol. at 3 months, i was still breastfeeding my child and learning many thing as a new parent. its only been 3 months and you’re already taking a vacation from your kids. remember, you’re not only having your children, your children are having you as well! so they are also getting to create the bonds and connections with their parents. with that being said, parents need mini vacations from their kids when they become teenagers and can take care of themselves pretty much.

  • I’m a mom and I feel guilty leaving my 7yr old daughter with my mom for work. Or to go out and enjoy myself. I have enormous guilt. Idk why?

  • It’s absolutely horrible to leave your 3 month old baby for nothing! Anyone who understands basic child psychology and development knows that. Why have the baby if you’re gonna abandon it like that?!

  • If they felt it was time for a vacation, then it was the right move for them. Nobody wins when you are burnt out or pouring from an empty cup.

  • I caint wait to have kids so I can leave thier butts, just kidding 3 months is way to young I don’t see how they can enjoy themselves, plus I would fill uncomfortable going on vaction without my kids god food something happens and my kids have neither parents

  • I would feel guilty, but my relationship with my husband comes first, as we are the best example of what a loving, kind, respectful, and faithful relationship is!

  • Wow such a beautiful place. That pool looks amazing. Everyone seems to be having an amazing time. Those colors are amazing. I have never heard of an ocean pool. I will be going to Mexico in June. I’m super excited to go now.

  • 3 months is a bit too young for me especially if you breastfeed your child like I did. As soon as the child starts the bottle why not? But for me before he or she is one year old I wouldn’t feel comfortable leaving them behind and wouldn’t really enjoy myself or my husband.

  • Valeria can you please stop with these ugly thumbnails, I’ve always appreciated how classy your channel is, now not so much..they look like cheap lifehack videos..

  • I get it. To an amusememt it is hard with toddlers. They require lots of attention and depending on the age the toddler may or may not be tall enough for rides

  • When she said “you were a wife, before you were a mother”……….ummmmm not now and days ���� it’s the other way around sad to say

  • How many ” regular ” folk go on a vacation right after having a baby???
    Those who say they aren’t judging them, would damn sure be judging their sister, cousin, brother or best friend..��������
    Cut it out lol
    3 months old!!!!
    That’s Hollyweird
    Why are regular people concerned???

  • For more Lipovetsky family adventures watch our INSTAGRAM VS REALITY | The Lipovetsky Family Edition video

  • I just can’t handle the cuteness of how well the kids behave. Like: “these are all snacks, can i have all of them??? Like all at the same time?!?!” ������ awwww

  • Benny doesn’t seem to like textures touching his skin (sand, towel) and he also doesn’t seem to like flavorful foods… I’m genuinely wondering, is this a kids thing? I’m 24 and don’t have any and I’m not NEAAAAARLY as patient as Val or Gary, how am I ever going to manage ������������
    When I see you two being calm and understanding and quite accomodating I wonder if it’s a parent thing that’s learnt or one just has it in them?:/ From what I recall, as a kid I never got to choose and had to eat whatever was on the table �� I used to HATE muesli and milk but my mom MADE me finish every spoonful ugh ��

    Also, the apple scene was too cute ��

  • I love your videos but I’ve been watching less or months behind because I just skip over thumbnails that look like this, i don’t even realize it’s a vlog!

  • He don’t cry for the apples, he cry because is not 4 anymore it’s the 5 years old crisis.. haha he is so cute and intelligent, all of your childrens are..

  • Using your phone while driving
    It has been illegal to touch a mobile phone even with a hands free set while driving since 2003. This includes using a mobile to follow a map, read a text or check social media. The law applies even if you are stopped at traffic lights or queuing in traffic as your engine is still running.

  • Appreciative criticism: thank you for changing the thumbnail and title. The original posted one was very not “Valeria” brand and far too much like all the click-bait Morgz-like videos I DON’T click on (weird faces, BRIGHT red outline, cringe title). Much better now!

  • I love that you are teaching your kids to be mindful toward the planet and recycle! Honestly, they’re going to be spending their rest of their lives on earth and we’ll need it to be a safe and pollution-free place for them to live in peace

  • A is the only one speaking realistically because a baby don’t know and won’t remember. It’s all about the parent feeling guilty which you shouldn’t. There are some places that are age appropriate and some are not. Don’t be that annoying parent bringing a small baby to places they shouldn’t be and people have to listen to them screaming or crying����‍♀️����‍♀️

  • Benny is like me…so moody heheheh just to watch him is like revisiting my childhood but my parents were not like Gary Nd you Valeria they were so impatient….loved this one..

  • Hi Ms. Valeria I’m a fan from Philippines. I really love watching your vlogs �� Hoping to have a great family like yours someday.Wishing you well and happiness��

  • I wish to have a dad like that. �������������� Anyways, happy birthday Benny hugs and kisses from Malaysia. ��������������������������

  • Sometimes I think Tamera has to understand that not everyone is her with her kids. I don’t think there is anything wrong with having your own stuff and doing your thing to make sure you are taking care of you. Don’t neglect your child but take care of you. I worry sometimes what’s gonna happen with Tamera when her kids grow up and don’t need her as much.

  • omg..i dont now hwy i got so emotional from the beginning!! such a wholesome family <3

    you guys are such role models
    and omg my precious Benny on them apples <3 <3

  • One still confused ��‍♀️ what happen other one making mom and dad falling out of the bed and one comes out of nowhere jumping on its parents and another one still sleeping �� and last one jumps out of the corner me:what the hell is going on:you guys well this is life with six kids

  • I love your videos I wish I could see you guys in person! But can you give me your address so I can send you guys fan mail?! I like Stephen, Taylor, and parker. Have a great day.!����������️����������������❤️����������������♥️����������������❣️��

  • In the bloopers I see oarker on the phone looks over in Parker mind: “what is happening they are crazy” I dont think parker actually thinks that but its my perspective��

  • Hi soty family you don’t know me but my name is summer and I love your channel and I am a girl not a boy and how old is payton I am 9 years old and I am in third grade please reply to my comment… comments and can you say my name in one of your videos? FACT: I have been watching your channel for 3months.

  • Lol Adrienne just hush �� God I can’t wait for her to actually have a child lol �� She’s not gonna be having sex everyday and every night and damn sure won’t be leaving her child behind bc the party doesn’t wanna be obligated to take a baby along. And I’ll definitely agree that Tamera does use Loni a bit. To watch kids.

  • I think it is better to have your kids with you then they get to explore too!And I LOVE your videos.And I think Payton and Jordan are the best. They always make me laugh ��

  • To me she is being sensible. If I was a mom I would leave my kids home with a baby sister. I wouldn’t take my kids with me.����❤️������

  • Hi suck shot of the Yeagers I just wanna say that so glad that we can, and that I just wanna tell you that Taylor is my favorite one in the family and your guises family I just want to say that how old is Blake and that I am almost 7 my birthday is April 28 and I just wanna know if I don’t know if you could show us your show us your backyard I really want to know what your backyard looks like I have never seen it maybe you already posted a video I don’t know but I haven’t seen it and I can’t find any videos about it so yeah but I wish that you could come see me I live in Kaiser West Virginia in new Creek but I really don’t want to tell which street I live because there’s some people that’s going to try to come i’m going to come to our house and then we’re not gonna and then they my steel they may break into our house so I don’t want to say maybe when you get in Keizer West Virginia creek I’ll tell you I’ll I’m in the dark blue house OK so bye

  • Soty family I love all of your videos on YouTube and I have been watching your YouTube videos for 7 months now and they are still great

  • Wow I may have missed it but what resort was this? I just did a vacation in Cancun Mexico this past June. It was soooooo hot!!! You guys look like you enjoyed! Great pics at the end! Did you all do any excursions?

  • Haha yessss startin off with a drink!!! Mexico customs is NO joke.. so many thorough steps. LOL @ his random spanish phrases! Suuuch beautiful colors!

  • My dad use to steal his grandson on the weekends to spend the night when he was just a few months old. It started out just one night a week, then he started keeping him two nights in a row….that was too much for me, I needed my baby back. So I can’t imagine going on vacation and leaving my baby behind that young. Maybe at 6 months to a year, but not at 3 months.

  • Amazing! We have a vacation club in Mexico. I can’t wait till my kids are a little older and we can take advantage of some of the adult only respects! Looks like you had a fabulous trip! I could go for a cocktail in the pool right about now! I love when resorts have nightly entertainment shows like thosw

  • Tamera likes it cause she sits w the baby eating snacks on the bench while everyone waits in line and when they’re done they switch w her real quick and she doesn’t have to wait! ����

  • If u have a age gap like mine (6yrs). Its not fair to the older sibling that wants mom and dads time. I dont think there is anything wrong with leaving a baby or young toddler with grandparents. My parents will gladly take my son places so he can enjoy his day too. Now however, i would not leave for more than 1 day. I would just not feel right.

  • This is why my mom had a rule that she didn’t take us to any theme parks till we were old enough to enjoy it and not be in strollers and could all ride the rides

  • As a mom with multiples I can say sometimes it is better to just take the age appropriate kids. This way my son doesn’t feel like he’s being left out he doesn’t feel like all of the attention is on his twin sisters and instead of telling us mommy did you see he’s like Mommy look what we just did. Trust me I’m a parent who can’t leave my kids with anyone it’s extremely hard but there are certain situations where we choose to ensure that our son will get the full experience. I’m a big believer of families doing things together had an amazing family time but I’m also a big believer that each individual child needs their own attention so sometimes if you’re doing an activity that caters to one it is good to give him that special one-on-one Mom and Dad attention rather than just a group

  • I have never left my kids and went on vacation ever. I have 3 kids 1 is 5, 19 months and newborn. And yall I’m 2 seconds from losing my mind. Tamerraaaaa girl……….. your going to explode lol trust me lol

  • My mom had to go on an international trip when I was 11 for about a week or two. But she didn’t trust my dad to take care of me and my sister for that long so she left us with our aunt while dad stayed home alone ��

  • I’ve been working for yrs with no vacations. I hope I get a time to have one. Even if I had an infant I’d still take the vacation alone.

  • People leave time intensive relatives behind for trips ALL THE TIME or… no one gets a trip or a mental break. Simple. Stay crazy. Tam has the economic lifestyle for ideas like paying to have babies and staff/friends go on trips.

  • I see Tamera point but all kids deserve their time to have their own adventures with their parents. Our kids are 16,15, and 5. We have left the youngest home to take the older ones and vise versa

  • I think it’s great that parents would take the time out to nurture their own relationship by going on vacation and leaving the kids behind (in good care obviously). Some parents make their whole lives just about the kids and neglect their own relationship. And it’s nice for the kids to see parents with a good relationship!

  • Sorry no toddler is going to spoil the fun as long as my mom is available. The thing is she always wants to be a part of the gun so we take her along and take turns. But when we want some time away, sorry baby had to stay behind. No remorse. Only relief. Sorry lol

  • my mom used to lie and have me lie that was 7 on the public bus to get for free. 7 and under was free. I was 7 for 6 years. Once in a whule, they didn’t believe us and wouldn’t say anything. and a couple of times they caught us and firmly, but gently called us out lol

  • For me, personally I think it depends on how big the child is. If they’re a baby or a toddler we should go out as a family but once they’re old enough to understand mommy and daddy need some time together then you leave them in the care of someone else:)

  • No shade, but I think Tam has lost some of her identity. Just like it’s ok to spend alone time in a relationship, it’s ok to sometimes leave kids out of certain situations. Damn Tam, with them morbid thoughts. I would never think like that because I know that if something were to happen to my child(ren) that I have left them with the utmost responsible person who will take care of them until I got back. Sheeseh…I would not be able to enjoy myself knowing that I would have to always tend to my child cause they can’t do certain things, or burden someone else while I go enjoy myself, or wondering if my child feels a certain way while everyone is off doing things while they’re just watching. To me thats worse than leaving them, and it’s kinda selfish, cause they’ll always have those memories of everyone having fun except them.

  • i fully agree with Tam i am the same way thats just me i enjoy vacations with my kids my whole family even when my kids are in the best care i still wouldn’t enjoy my vaca with out them asked any of my family members, even sleep over i still cant 9 years later after my daughter born she still has not slept over grandmas house lol and when i do leave them with grandma im call in like 15 times lol love my babies 9 and 5 years old

  • my parents did not leave me alone at 13, you’re still a child. A run to the supermarket was fine, but a weekend alone or a trip alone no sir!

  • If you have kids of different agesI think its important NOT to show the youngest all the attention. If everything is about the baby it says that you don’t give 2 BLANKS about the older kid.
    Its always best to take kids when they can enjoy and verbally say that they enjoy.

  • Imagine having no say in being born and your parents seeing you as an inconvenience & a burden on your own family trip. Hell no. I would never let my child feel that way or grow up to see a picture of the rest of us at a park while they sat at home and explain why we left them. That’s so wrong.

  • My mom hated children before she had them and she would die for us and never would go on vacation without us. Yet she wouldn’t hold children or babies.

  • I do believe parents need to have their alone time, just to take a breather away from the kids and to also spend a one on one with their significant other to keep that chemistry alive. As long as you know your children are safe and in the hands of someone you trust then okay and hello it’s called check ins. Check in at least once a day to see how everything is going

  • I leave my 8 yr old son at home for some vacations but I would never leave my new baby whose still on breast milk for 2 weeks. Ever. I wouldn’t leave my 8 year old for 2 weeks. If it’s longer than 7 days, my children are coming with me.

  • My husband s baby mama, she took her 7 year old to a Disney cruise and left my husband s 2 year old with the grandmother. But, the mom doesn’t it all of the time. I can understand that you want to spend time with that one siblings but, the mom doesn’t want to take her 2 year old nowhere together with her two girls. She also gives her oldest more attention to her oldest daughter than my husband’s daughter.

  • We will see when Adrienne becomes a mother. I have seen a lot of people talk so much before the have kids and then when they get them, they are more smothering than the Mothers they have opinions about.��

  • I have to agree with Adrienne because parks like Disney World/Disneyland have tickets that cost money! Now, you can bring your baby for free because they can’t do anything but, that Chaperone for the baby still has to buy a ticket. I’m not spending hundreds of dollars and can’t experience anything along with the rest of the family because the baby can get on the ride. I would be more accepting of it if the child was of age to ride anything. Then, that’ll be an opportunity to part ways and have each parent or guardian bond with each child. But to have a 1 year old come with the family to something like that and have someone sit out is a waste when you can sit at home and bond away.

  • I dont believe any parent should feel guilty for taking a vacation without their children. There is family vacation time and “i need adult time and a break” vacation time. Both are great but it needs to be a balance. Dont let ur world be consumed in being a parent. U had a life before ur child and u shouldnt lose who u are after. It sounds selfish but some moms become so invested into the mommy role that they dont even know what to do without their kids around. To properly love ur kids, u have to love and take care of yourself first, including mental health and a sense of individualism.

  • Jeannie being a mom requires sacrifice. When you are blessed with one or more in the future..all those things won’t matter anymore. You little bundles of joy are worth it.

  • I bitterly love you guys i love

    And Jamie

    I love ����❤��you guys so so so so much and stay safe

  • I would leave my baby with my mum to go on a vacation with the other kids. It’s a baby. That cry, they don’t sleep, they don’t like noise, you have to be careful with the baby around, etc. It’s sensible to leave ur kid, if you can..

  • Jeannie! U would have been a real, normal, everyday mom. Smh. Don’t be hard on urself. Me and my husband want to leave our kids all the time. Lol.

  • I had a good friend post vacation pictures of her and her man at Disneyland… kid-less. I didn’t really understand why you’d go to disneyland and not take your 5 year old… Until Jeannie explained that she’d want to go on the rollercoasters and would be upset if the kid held her back from that ��

  • I think once they’re old enough to understand that everyone is going on vacation then I would take them. But when my brother was a couple months old, we left him with my grandma when we went to Florida and it didn’t really affect him. It would’ve been a lot harder if we had taken him

  • Hello Valeria! Happy 5th ��Birthday to this precious little angel ��Benny!You are so amazing and adorable and are so loved. What an amazing Birthday that you had. This is such a beautiful video. It is very ❤ heart warming. Love �� you so much Valeria Love Janice and Larry Watson

  • No birthdays and no vacations until at least 6-7 yrs. I don’t remember anything. I have pictures of Disney at 5 and I believe I had a good time, but under 6 it just doesn’t seem worth the financial investment
