Camp Mommy: Outbound
Although I am always with my kids-all day, every day...there is something about taking them out of the house that poses a great challenge. They are totally crazy, hardly listen, and consistently "off road". What do I mean by off road? If there is a nicely, paved path....my kids are not on it. Not usually a HUGE problem unless there is a very large body of water nearby. Hmmm. Nonetheless, the three of us are off for a grand adventure.
Notice I do not call it a vacation. If you are traveling with your kids it can be a called a trip, but never, never a vacation. You most certainly understand this if you are a mother. Family trips simply move your job to new, and unfamiliar, location. (I guess you could call it a business trip. ) I would never trade the great places we have traveled with our boys, but I always feel like a need a "vacation" once I have returned home from our vacation. I am almost certain you have felt this way too.
I will catch up with all of you in a week!
