in thinking that it's too much to take 3 boys under six to a theme park by myself?

You're mad, it might seriously limit what you can do with them . Where do you plan to go ?

As A couple it would be doable, but ALONE??? While he has a nice quiet game of golf? Your DH is being very U angry

How will you take them all on rides?

I would be fine on my own on a normal day out as I am a CM, so am used to having lot's of children around me.

However a theme park could be tricky. You will be very limited to what things you can go on with all 3.

Height restrictions will mean there probably won't be that many rides you can take them on by yourself.

I would insist the only golf DH played was crazy golf, inside the theme park, with me and the DCs.

It would be pointless paying all that money for entrance fees for one adult and three very young children.

You wouldn't get value for money, as there would be little you could all go on.

I took three of mine, aged 8,3 and 3 by myself, but I didn't have to apy to take them, so we wandered round and went on the few rides that we could all go on together. A lot of rides require children to be accompanied, so you wouldn't be able to do it by yourself.

Why does he have to play golf? yanbu.

Can you rearrange the day out until when you can both go or can dh change his plans so that he can come with you.

I don't understand why he 'expects' you to take them to a theme park. If he is not going to be around, you should be free to entertain the children as you see fit.

I agree that a theme park with three children of diffferent ages will be no fun. Do it another time when dh is not playing golf.

why does he expect you take to them by yourselfhmm I wouldln't take my two alone(they are 4 years and 16 months) infact I wouldn't take ds(16 months) at all since he would have nothing to do. I was contemplating taking dd to one as she'd love it but would only go if ds could be left with mil

I took my 3 boys aged 6,4 and 15 months to a theme park this summer while DH was tied up for the day and I lost my 4 year old. I shouted for him for about 10 minutes, then reported him missing. There were 2 tannoy announcements and then a call to say he had been handed in. It was very scary and I will never to it again.

how terrifying evangelina - you poor thing!

I think that story would be enough to put the OP off!!!

FWIW no I wouldn't do this with 3 kids those ages. Either re-arrange golf, or re-arrange the outing, or just forget it!

We (a friend and I) took 4 boys, 7,4 21 months and 14 months to a theme park while on holiday. That was hard enough with the two of us, and as it was a young children's theme park so my DS1 and 2 were tall enough to go on stuff on their own - couldn't imagine even taking my 3 (7,4 and 14 months) to one on my own!

LoveMyGirls Mon 18-Aug-08 16:22:09

I can't honestly believe your dh thinks you can do it alone, total madness!

mumeeee Mon 18-Aug-08 17:37:38

YANBU. There probably won't be many rides they can go on. I have taken my children to a lot of places by myself when they were small but I never even thought of taknig all 3 to a theme park.

Just back from legoland, with 2 boys and one girl under 6 on my own.

Wheres the Vodka grin

Seriously though. You can hardly go on any rides with one adult and three children. Health and safety bla bla bla as some 15 year old spotty teenager told me today.

LIZS Mon 18-Aug-08 17:54:42

where's the op gone ?
