On the road, two couples, one with an almost 3 month old daughter while the other couple dosent want to even think f a child for another 5 years atleast.
The mother in the car, tells the hubby that the next vacation should be in Italy. (though they dont have the money to go to even Lahore at the moment, but no harm in dreaming). The otheer couple, who have already been to Italy say that we should go to italy without the little one if the plan is to go in another years time. My hubby agrees. Saying that
a) zoey will be too young to remember anything.
b) We’ll have to pay her ticket and everything, without her having any memories from the trip.
c) Its healthy to have time off.
Now the thing is, that I wish I could beg to differ from the hubby, but I dont. What bothers me though, is that do I have it in me to leave Zoey and go? Our parents left us all the time, and infact we used to like that. We would shuffle between nanis house and our house and would love all the attention and pampering and the lovely gifts that would come back.
But I wonder, am I like my mother? Do I have it in me to have fun while I know Zoey is in good hands and well taken care off? Would I be able to have fun? Or would my mind keep on wandering back to Karachi.
There is no vacation in the pipeline yet, but in a hypothetical situation what would I do, I wonder!
