they are flying us to QLD for the christmas party / retirement party for the boss, which was so exciting to me as we've never been with such a generous company. As far as i knew the kids were booked too. Nothing was spoken about, just 'you're going to QLD' blah blah
Anyway theyare happy for the kids to go, but they didnt book Jack a seat. No worries, we'll do it ourselves, or so i thought.
Oliver has to come, he is B/F so has to come. I had a wonderful thought of going to dreamworld or whereever it is that Wiggle world is blah blah.
MrMM cracked it hard last night saying we cant afford it etc so he will be staying home. WTF? Its not fair to leave an almost 3 year old without his baby brother and his parents- he'll be asking for us the whole time. I can leave him at my parents no worries. Thats not a worry to me. Im so annoyed about this..... so MrMM said to call this morning as flights were available last night, to book for Jack, but the flights are full for that day. Im cut. And annoyed.
MrMM said its an imporntant business trip for him as he'll meet the interstate contacts etc etc, and Jack will be running around too much (yes......he's almost 3, thats what they do. I know this cause i spend 24/7 with my kids) FINE...... but if its so importnat then why should i go with a 10 month old, cart all the things a 10 month old needs, sit in a hotel room for 2 nights (yes i get to go to the party but i wont know anyone) and think of all the things im seeing and doing and think 'jack would love this' etc. im getting teary and angry just thinking about being so far away from him.
if i'd known Jack wasnt going i would have said to MrMM to go solo, as its not right. I dont want to go now, but cant talk to him today as he is working late and dont want to argue on the phone.
argh. sorry i dont even know why im posting this cr@p
