Six Secrets to Traveling With Young Children

Image
#FamilyVacation You are probably thinking about taking a family vacation before the end of the year. If that's true, I have the answers to your travel questions! Not to brag or anything, but last July, I traveled to Atlanta, Georgia solo with my three young children. I know that there are other mamas out there feeding the hungry, running marathons and working to cure cancer, but still I think the fact that we all made it there and back safely without any melt downs or major disruptions to our fellow travelers was a feat!

One would think that I actually had more authority that I do given how dependent people seem to be on me. However, perhaps, I am the one with the identity problem. Maybe I am actually in charge, but I don't know it. Wouldn't that be crazy?! I have been really involved in a board that I serve on. We've had meetings, conference calls and assignments since I've been back. Volunteering has never cost me so much!   I have also been slowly unpacking and been somewhat delinquent on that.

@DisneyWorld  Most people visit Disney World in search of fun, adventure and rides . Apparently some people even go for the food because since we have returned everyone keeps asking us what we ate.  We may be the only family who visited Disney World and immediately went in search of a good place to nap.
