    Hi Ladies!

    Can't decide what to do re going away with my little one for this Christmas. Our options are:
    1. going to Essex on Xmas day to spend one night with my husband's exteneded family. This would mean travelling for at least 3 hours with a baby who is teething, is very, very irritable and crancky, and generally hates car seat (unsual I know); or,
    2. staying at home and having a relaxed, 'I don't want to achieve anything special' type of Christams.
    You can guess which is my favourite but my husband is really pushing for going away. Would you go away or stay at home?
    Thanks!

    Well you've just sold option 2 to me :D

    We're off to MIL on Xmas morning, but then its oly 2 hours, Libby will sleep all the way (famous last words :lol: ) and we're there for the week rather than just one night.

    Hope you have a nice xmas, whichever option wins :hug:

    even if i really wanted to go somewhere, if my baby didnt i wouldnt. 3 hours is a long time to a baby and i would put the babys happiness first. :)
