Traveling mother

Lisa, who used to write on this blog, recently posted on her own blog her experience in NYC this winter. We went this summer and just now I’m organizing our photos into a book to print.  Looking at Trevor’s photos, I see just how hard I/we worked with the kids on this vacation. Anyone will tell you vacays look tons different with kids, and I’m no different.

Actually, I preferred Trevor’s unposed photos of me. I can’t see for myself how hard I work schlepping and carrying, planning and anticipating. But these photos show it. I love seeing myself this way. I really do.

So here’s to the parents who dare to take vacations with kids. It’s worth it. I just looks a lot different than pre-kid vacays.

    I like this for many reasons but mainly because it speaks the truth. Great captures of a loving, doting (literally and figuratively) and patient mother.

    Definitely worth it. Each of these made me smile, but “Another quiet, relaxing meal” especially. Good job giving them wings!

    I remember those days when my two were little, they are 15mo. apart. But as you are going through it, you don’t even realize most of the hard work it took 😉
