I went on vacation last week with my family, and while I was there, wrote a little guest post for Living Self-Care. It goes a little something like this:
I’m on “vacation” right now. I put the word in quotes because, well, it doesn’t exactly feel like vacation.
Sure, we’re staying in a family friend’s lovely condo (for free!) in North Carolina, steps from a gorgeous pool and a 30-minute drive to the beach. How lucky are we?
But with a 5-year-old daughter and 2-year-old son along, this week has been a lot more work than relaxation.
And tell me what you think: Are vacations really worth it when you have little ones? (I’m talking not potty trained, not fully able to communicate, still need naps little.)
