So, I’m trying to talk my husband into going on a little mini-vacation next week. Not like an all-out airplane-flying, hotel-staying, spend-a-fortune trip to Disney World or anything like that, but a little road trip to the beach or to Dallas or Houston or something.
I know it’s a bit crazy. I mean, we have a five-week-old. And a three-year-old. And an almost kindergartner. And we’re all still recovering from, well, everything. But the thing is, I feel like I’ve been stuck in the house forEVER. And I truthfully kind of have…since last summer was spent at home, too, because I was pregnant and then lost the baby in late July. And then I spent the entire school year sick and pregnant. So this is the first time in a LONG time that I can really get away. So I want to go.
So, questions for y’all:
1. Am I nuts? Should I just suck it up and stay home until my kids are a bit older
2. If we do go, what should we do? Does anyone have any brilliant (and not too expensive) ideas for travel with a family of five including a nursing infant?
