So, The Boy has two genius parents who geniously decided that it would be so fun to take a vacation with our 14 month old.
Until now, “vacation” has meant visiting my parents…meaning staying at my parents comfy house and making them cook, clean, go on late night McD’s runs (not joking), look after The Boy at the beach while we swim…you get the point. We’ve always had extra hands around.
This “vacation” will be nothing like our past ones…in fact, it will be full of firsts for The Boy:
- First time sleeping in a hotel
- First time eating out (seriously, it’s not worth the hassle to me so we usually just order in)
- First time going on one nap (bah! what was I thinking)
- First time meeting whales and seeing Niagara Falls (ok, I think that will be a fun first)
You get my point. There will be a lot of firsts as we venture out for a few days of family “fun” in Niagara Falls. Between the two hour car ride (please God, let him sleep), the lack of routine (which I live for) and the lack of proper sleep (which I am crazy about!)…I just don’t know how The Boy and his parents will get through it.
Help a mother out- what are your tips/tricks for traveling with a 14 month old toddler? How can I make this a fun experience for all of us??
