I don't think Sami and EJ abandoned their kids anymore than anyone else who has left town or sent them off to year around boarding school.

They're with their grandma, not left home alone.
Exactly! Having kids never stopped Bo & Hope, John & Marlena.........any of the supercouples (or non-supercouples) from going on their adventures and giving us some of DOOL's best stories. When Marlena said she was sending Sami and Eric to her parents in Colorado for their protection-of course I raised my eyebrow at that. As if Stefano wouldn't be able to get to them there if he wanted them? I knew what the show was doing-they can't show the kids all the time and although Marlena's reasoning wasn't "real life illogical", it made "soap sense" in that it showed she cared for her kids.

I applaud Sami for insisting she go on the run with EJ to find evidence to prove he is innocent, thus making sure her kids aren't deprived of their father for years.
Interesting. Because that never actually happened. Sami and Eric weren't sent to Colorado for protection. Not originally and not even in the recon. Originally, Roman and Caroline sent them to Colorado for Thanksgiving when they couldn't find Marlena (she was in the pit). The recon that was six weeks later when Sami showed up SORASed was that Sami and Eric begged to go to some special school. I think Marlena's foster son was the only child that ever went to Colorado for protection. I don't disagree with the sentiment about parents going on adventures, though. There are always things they could do better on the show when it comes to parents and children, and most of it seems like easy fixes (usually just some minor dialogue tweaks), but I don't think this particular thing is that big of a deal. Especially since it looks like they're going to be out of Salem for a grand total of 3 hours.
