She's 15.8 for goodness sake. Dh thinks I was grin

We're in England, she's legally able to get married in 4 months and I was only downstairs . . .

oh for gods sake of course YANBU

If your DH is that bothered why isn't HE looking after her

Squeegle Sun 24-Aug-14 09:47:44

If course it's fine

Ha ha your dh is being so precious.

I'm guessing she is able to operate a phone and text you if she wonders where you are.

Squeegle Sun 24-Aug-14 09:48:15

I thought you were going to say she was 2!

eurochick Sun 24-Aug-14 09:48:20

If that is her age in months, then yes...

BreadForBrains Sun 24-Aug-14 09:49:03

Yanbu. Of course. confused

I skim read it as 15 months and was going to flame yougrin

No. If she is 15 I am assuming you would have had to sit looking at her till at least 12 before she decided to get up. You could quite possibly go out and do a bit of sight seeing too before she decides to get up!

Thought DD was a baby! In which case yes!

But nearly 16! No no no!

CoolCat2014 Sun 24-Aug-14 09:50:03

She's 15 years? No YANBU

You cannot be serious!!!!!!!!

TSSDNCOP Sun 24-Aug-14 09:53:02

She's 15, she could easily sleep forever. You'd be dead of starvation.

Was it a full English? It'd be a brave DH that tried to stop me getting to that.

ChasedByBees Sun 24-Aug-14 09:55:53

Ha! Of course YANBU!

Sirzy Sun 24-Aug-14 09:56:20

leave her a note/send a text to tell her where you are then enjoy breakfast!

QOD Sun 24-Aug-14 09:57:17

Hahaha it was delicious with extra sausage which I smuggled into a plastic bag and she ate sitting in bed whilst frowning at me

I think it's crazy how protective some people are, I'd maybe not do in in some foreign hell hole

And he didn't stay with her as he wasn't with us

Oh there were also two mini croissants <burp>

Like everyone except your husband, I think you were extremely reasonable.

What was he worried about?

greeneggsandjam Sun 24-Aug-14 10:33:14

He should be telling your daughter off for not getting up and keeping you company at breakfast and also for losing out on the breakfast and putting you through to stress of smuggling food out to her!!!

Picturesinthefirelight Sun 24-Aug-14 10:55:41

She's 15!!!!!!

Last week we left our 12 year old & 10 year old whilst we went to the bar for a last drink.

When we went abroad dd had her own room key & was free to go by the pool, in the room or in the reception area during the day as she pleased.

PhaedraIsMyName Sun 24-Aug-14 11:04:08

Good grief. Is he serious?

Thumbwitch Sun 24-Aug-14 11:05:42

God, at nearly 16, absolutely not! if it had been a very small child then yes, I would have said YWBU but she's a teenager! Your DH is being daft.

Frontier Sun 24-Aug-14 11:08:35

Have you/he never left her at home or let her go to the shop on her own?

Why is he upset specifically about her being left in a hotel room?

Ilovenewts Sun 24-Aug-14 11:12:46

Well in a few months she can check into a hotel by herself if she wants to..

hercules1 Sun 24-Aug-14 11:13:46

Surely you've left her alone previously? Does she not at least take her herself to and from school? Seems a strange thread to start tbh as it' s bizarre that you and dh would even have such a conversation. I thought she was going to be about 2.
