Take time off to spend with them?
Ship 'em off to Grandma's?
We did the camp thing last holidays, ditched the two boys (10 & 12) at Findlay Park for 5 days.
After about three days the novelty wore off and the peace and quiet was deafening!
This time they'll be spending time with grandparents, and probably catching the odd movie, maybe some indoor rock-climbing.
