Wow. I mean, the part that bugs me the most is the people that assume that EVERYONE wants to spend EVERY WAKING MINUTE EVERY DAY OF THE YEAR with their kids.
I mean, maybe they do. I'm childfree myself so I could see myself gleefully leaving the kid with someone whenever I got the chance and running off to have a break from shrieking and smelly nappies. But regardless of one's views on children, it makes sense to me not to take a really little kid on a vacation. It'll cramp your style, if you have to go only places that are kid-oriented (no Louvre for you!) or have to run back to the hotel room every time the kid is fussy, sick, hungry, bored, etc. (in which case, why not just stay home and just sit around?), and there's no point in paying for a vacation for a kid that won't remember and/or won't appreciate it. And especially on one's HONEYMOON, the point of which is to have alone time with one's new spouse!
