Basically we live 150 miles away from DP's family and his mum asked if she could take DS for a week because we need a break from him as he is rather boisterous 24/7!
Anyway at first I said no straight away as DP's family are not what you'd call admirable but they would see no harm to him obviously, and I feel like 3 is far too young to be away from both his parents although now after a very tough few days with DS I am thinking that it may be a good idea.
I'm torn whether it's right or not, my head is saying no but the rest of me is saying yes I just need a break! We or DS' family drive so if anything were to happen we would be totally reliant on public transport which is a 5 hour journey.
i would dependly on what you mean by 'DP's family are not what you'd call admirable'.although id be thinking more like 3-4 days than a week.ds2 is 3 and i couldnt imagine a whole week.depends on the child though and his relationship with them.
