Family vacations have a uniquely wonderful way of putting parents on edge.
There’s the pressure we put on ourselves to make them magical and memorable. Then, there’s the hard job of getting your responsibilities covered at work, doing all the laundry, getting the kids packed, remembering to buy motion sickness bands…
Then, by the time your plane is in the air you realize you forgot Kevin. (Kevin!!!!) 😱
If I can urge parents to do 2 things, it’s these:
- Please, don’t forget Kevin.
- Don’t forget the #1 overlooked item on your packing list… a level head! Take a few minutes to slow down and have what I call a Pre-Trip Huddle with your partner to ready your minds. It’ll make all the difference in helping you actually enjoy your trip!
