Friends. I have some exciting news to share. (AndnoI'mnotpregnant. Whew. Glad to clear that up.)
In just about two weeks, we are leaving for Italy. For almost a month. With the kids. We are insane. And super duper excited.
My manic list-making self has kicked into high gear. Things to get. Things to pack (which, of course, includes many sub-parts). Things to tell the house sitter. Things to find out before we go. Places to visit while we're there. And more that I won't (further) bore you with.
Truth be told, I have some anxiety about the trip, which I am told, is normal for a mom with three kids under age 5. Most centers around the plane ride. I dunno. Something about entertaining three youngsters in a small space for 18 hours or so that makes me start to hyperventilate, and you? I have taken to picking the brain of my sweet friend Charity who has logged something like a million miles with her two and a half year old. She's the pro. Of course, one of her tips is bring many fun new toys to delight the kiddos.
I'm thinking this cute little travelling family house would be perfect for C-Man....Just a heads up.....I'm sure I'm going to be asking for your tips for travel with little ones over the next couple of weeks.
