Momversation this week is about how to travel with children. Traveling with children is loads of fun. Our first family “vacation” was with a ten month old Maile to Hawaii and let me just say she was amazing.
And by “amazing” I mean I would rather have traveled with a pack of wild monkeys. She wouldn’t let us sit with her. She had a time change to adapt to. She got into everything at the rental house we stayed at. She still needed her naps which meant from the moment she woke up we had two hours to hurry and do something before her morning nap and another three hours between that nap and her afternoon nap.
I stayed behind with the napping baby while my husband pranced around the island. I had to remind myself that I was on vacation in Hawaii and that this was super fun.
Repeat that exact vacation two more times and you might understand why Pat and I, in fact, choose not to hop from state to state with our precious cargo. The fun vacations seemed more like work than it was worth and we dare not visit Hawaii again until Kainoa turns forty.
So when I realized this Momversation topic was about traveling and how important it is to continue seeing the sites post baby, I just knew I had to weigh in.
I mean…Nell the very serious moderator/question asker,
Sara, the valley girl with important things to say,
and Rebecca, the super smart, sweet southern belle,
all weighed in with their best travel advice:
- How do you entertain your children when you travel?
- What types of hotels do you stay in?
- Where will you travel next?
- What’s your idea of a great vacation?
