I can't believe I'm letting her go!

My DD's school does an 8th grade NYC trip every spring. It was $700 and we just paid the last payment. Parents are welcome to chaperone, but there's no way that I can go considering that I have 6 yo DS and on top of that, it would have been another $700 for me to go and I would have been riding the bus up to NYC with the kids. Not sure my nerves could take it. All in all, it just was better for me to stay home. There are other parents going, although everyone that I see on the list are moms that I don't think I'd be able to have dinner with let alone room with. BUT, I also see them as the moms that are super-involved and I am feeling a little bit bad that I am not going because I feel like I will be judged on letting her go without me, although after she finishes this year, I don't think I'll see any of them again (fingers crossed).

It doesn't matter as much to me what they think as it does that I am letting my little girl go to NYC without me. The have a TIGHT itinerary and literally no downtime. Still....
