Here, honey. This week, you need to take the kids  to soccer and Girl Scouts and gymnastics camp. There's not much in the fridge, so you'll need to hit the grocery store. Come to think of it, there's not much in the way of clean clothes, either, so you'll need to do laundry. Oh, and don't forget to mow the lawn. Now, have a blast! See you when I get back from vacation! 
Does jetting off to some exotic locale while your hubs and the kids  stay home sound like a dream come true? Well, go ahead and wake up: Reuters reports  that these days, momsand  dads are making solo trips a reality.
