Amsterdam with a nearly 3 year old?
My husband has a conference in Amsterdam every September and wants me and our daughter, who will be nearly three, to come. He has to work 3 full days (8am-8pm), and 3 half days (where the other half of the day we could tag along on a work outing like a boat trip or something), and we can extend the trip before or after the conference. The hotel will be paid for, but we'd have to pay for the extra plane tickets from SF. At first I thought it'd be doable and fun (bike rides with daughter, playgrounds, naps in the hotel room, etc) but now that I know how much he'll need to work, I feel like that much time being a solo caregiver in a new place will be too much. For reference, 6 days with my daughter without daycare would be stressful and lonely for me even at home. Previously I was more excited about this trip and started getting our daughter's passport application ready, located playgrounds in the city, etc, but now I'm feeling stressed about it. We haven't bought any tickets, so no harm in deciding not to go, but I'm kind of disappointed in myself in not thinking I can handle this.
