Okay parents, let's get real for a sec...Vacation with the littles can be hard, stressful and downright exhausting! 🕶There's the overpacking and unnecessary junk you drag along ...ya never know when you'll need 5 changes of clothes in a day .
🚗There's the long impatient traveling... "Are we there yet?!" "I'm getting out of my car seat."(as I'm driving down the interstate 😱) 😫There's the hangry tantrums and refusal to take a nap when schedules are off.. No that 10 minute nap on the car ride back does not count !
🏖There's the heat and the sand, oh the sand... What part of do not touch the sand after I wash your hands do you not understand?! Do not set your sandwich in the sand! Do not put sand in your pants... I mean really?! 🙄
But yall, honestly we would all endure every second of the ridiculous craziness of vacation and all its deep breaths, eye rolls, prayers for God's help and sanity..yep even when I'm 6 months preggo...just for that look of joy, that sparkle in their eye and the "I'm so excited, I cant wait! I'm having so much fun mom! This is the best day ever!" That look of wonder, joy and excitement is worth every extra that they come along with! One day we will miss the crazy, the hectic and the inconvenient and we will look back laughing (hopefully) and long for them to be little again...we will crave that look of wonder in their eyes when they see something for the first time... I try to remember this when Luke throws a tantrum because I wont let him change his shoes for the 4th time back to the original ones he had on 🙄 #indecisive #enjoythemlittle #neverloseyoursenseofwonder
