I planned a trip to the south of Italy for SEPT 13th..very excited to go.My daughter,age 11,is like glued to me.I normally take her EVERYWHERE I go...even overseas.She is a great kid to travel with and is a super sweetie. So Here is my prob.SHe is starting a BRAND NEW PRIVATE School the WEEK BEFORE I leave.A much harder curriculum too. I really cant pull her out of a new school for a week to go away.SO i was going to leave her with my friend to watch her. She is beside herself worried about starting a new school(she knows NOONE there!)....SO im guilt tripping as to whether I should cancel my trip and wait till later in the year to go away. I would of loved to take her with me...BUT not when she is startin a new school....sigh....... I had planned this trip BEFORE finding out she was accepted to this private school....so That complicated matters. Being a mom has always come first to me...ALWAYS.But I also hold Taylor a bit too close at times too(OK..she is a tad spoiled!LOL!) Im seriously leanin towards cancelling till later in the year.Im going to the beach house for a week with her next week too..Just by ourselves.So I will have alone time with her as well. **SIGH**Am I nuts to cancel?Im a pretty overprotective parent....But I feel this is super bad timing for my daughter.AND GOD forbid she has probs adjusting to this new school and Im OUT of the country....... ANyway..U guys are so super at rationalizing both sides..SO Id love to hear your opinions! THANKS!!!!
