Husband is in the Army Reserves. I recently agreed to become the new FRG co-leader. Before I signed the paperwork, I asked what commitments I would have to make. Everything the other leader told me sounded reasonable, so I signed all the documents.
Then... I found that within the next six months, Husband and I must attend a week-long training conference. Okay, cool. Sort of wish I had been told, but all right, that sounds fun.
Oh, you can't bring your baby.
Baby is breastfed. She is almost 9 months. It's very likely she will still be nursing 6 months from now if we try to stretch the training to the very end of the deadline. Even if she isn't, a week sounds like an awfully long time for Husband and I to leave her. Plus, I have no one to leave her with. My mom would be the obvious choice, except she works full-time.
Is it necessary to mention that I don't want to leave her for a week anyway?
I'm quite furious about this and wish I had been told before I had agreed.
I hate to back out of what I promised to do, but I don't think I have any other choice unless I am allowed to bring Baby.
What would you guys do?
