We could be beach bound in a week.
Here’s the offer.
My generous, lovely fellow Russian adoptive mom friend has invited Roman and I to tag along on her business trip to Barbados. Her and I adopted our kids at the same time and we live blocks apart from each other in the city. I would come along in a “nanny” capacity and take care of our kiddies (my 18 month old Roman and her 2 year old Daughter Nastia) while she is attending meetings and such for part of the day. Accommodations are covered by her company and I have enough travel points to cover the majority of the flight.
I have never attempted caring for two toddlers at the same time, let alone poolside. I think with enough flotation devices and possibly toddler leashes I could handle it but what if I lose my mind and their flip flops?
At the end of the day, once the kiddies are asleep, I can at the very least count on a quiet tropical cocktail on the balcony, breathing in the ocean air. That alone seem like argument enough to get packing.
So, Mama’s what would you do?
