Twins are sleeping! Must make as many posts as possible! This is the last one for today.
Are GH and I crazy? It's not a rhetorical question. This is why I ask.
GH's family lives in Detroit, a 13 hour drive or two-hour flight from our home in Boston. His parents have been begging us to bring the twins out to see them so that they can see them and we can show them off at the Korean church that is the hub of their community. I'm on maternity leave, of course, and GH is on summer vacation from school, so our schedule is wiiiiiiiide open.
So we're considering driving out to Detroit next week. We'd take two days for the drive, spend a few days with his parents, and spend two days driving back. The advantages are having the space for a ton of baby stuff, having our own car with carseat bases already installed, and knowing that the twins do well in the car. The disadvantages are that it's a long drive, it's a long drive, and it's a long drive.
Part of me is excited about a road trip. Part of me thinks we're nuts. If we go, we'll leave next Tuesday and come back the following Monday, so we'll be gone during Week 6 of the twins life, the week that is reputed to be their crankiest. Maybe traveling then is a really awful idea. Maybe they will be cranky no matter what we do, so why not travel?
Gosh, I just don't know. Thoughts?
