A group of friends are wanting to take a cruise next January. Our LO will be 17 months at the time and right now I can't even bear the thought of leaving him for more than a few hours! But in order to get a group deal we have to book the cruise well in advance and I'm worried when the time comes to leave LO I won't be ready and I won't be able to, therefore wasting a lot of money, OR I won't be ready but will still go and won't enjoy our vacation because I miss him so much.
