Vacation? with kids
This is not quite how I remember previous vacations to the beach. Of course….that was before we had kids. I don’t think there is such a thing as a vacation with the kids. It is simply a trip. The surroundings have changed, but all the laundry, cooking, refereeing and lack of sleep due to a teething baby continues.
Vacation is defined as ‘a period or suspension of work, study or other activity, usually used for rest.’ This is definitely not what I am on this week. But, I love it anyway, and if the kids weren’t along, I’d been wishing they were to experience everything through their eyes. So vacations might have been more restful prior to having kids, but our trips are more exciting now. There’s nothing cuter than watching our 15 month old squeal when she saw the ocean for the first time, or more fun than building a sandcastle with the twins. So I might be more tired when we get home then when we left, but it will be worth it.
