Hate to Pack? Try This “Hack.”

When it’s a once-in-a-blue-moon occurrence, I just have to share.  Getting all three of my kids to agree to anything at the same time and in the same place is practically a miracle.  As my mother-in-law has observed, not just with her own grandkids but in other families as well:  one child is always unhappy. Not this time.  And the task involved actual work.  A request.  And since the reward wasn’t a lego set (note:  it never is)…well, I still can’t believe this project went 3-for-3.

“Family” Vacations

I need some feedback.  And a serious dose of reality.  Because I think when it comes to planning a trip that includes our kids, my husband and I are misguided. I would love to hear from you, my readers, your opinions on traveling with kids and how to work the tough yet inevitable situations where one of the children is super-unhappy. Or if all of them are double super-unhappy. Because we just returned from a weekend away in Moab, Utah.  Hearing about the spectacular beauty of Arches National Park and the less-heard-of Dead Horse Canyon and that kids love the…
