Sometimes it feels like your every move as a new parent is being scrutinized and judged. And if you are Prince William and Duchess Kate, you’re right!
The royal parents are being criticized by some for taking a vacation to the Maldives, leaving 7-month-old George at home in the care of Kate’s parents. “Kate Middleton and Prince William Abandon Prince George For Selfish Luxury Vacation in Maldives,” screams one headline. People magazine more calmly notes that George’s grandparents are enjoying “spoiling him rotten” during the couple’s week-long baby-free getaway.
We all love our babies, but taking a little time away as a couple can be really healthy as well. Tell us what you think: Is it OK for parents to vacation without their baby?
