|Play del Carmen|
A few weeks ago, my dad called and told me that his company trip was to Mexico this year and that he would pay for his daughters and grandkids to go. Son in-laws if available would have to pay their own way. I went back and forth with this decision and finally decided that the best move for our family right now would be to stay home. We did go cruising with Z when he was C's age but he was a pretty easy going kid, S came with me and only having one child while traveling (especially with 3 adults) was not bad at all. This is not to say that we didn't have our challenges, but we were able to adapt to life on a ship with a toddler. We also took him to Aruba when he was 2, again we had the two of us, only him and he was at a great age to enjoy the pool, sand and playground and did pretty well on the long flight down there.
Having two children does complicate things a bit and Lil' C is a mover and a shaker. She is not going to sit tight in the security line let alone be entertained for four and a half hours on a plane. And lets just say that by some miracle we make it to Mexico without the other passengers attacking us, then we have to deal with the three of us sharing a room, nap schedules and a baby who does not sit still and will only last 20 minutes in a restaurant setting. In the end I decided that I would be more relaxed spending the week in my babyproofed house than I would in beautiful, sunny Mexico. I know that some of you must think I am crazy but at this point in our lives, we are just not up for this adventure. I LOVE Mexico and I am so blessed that I have been able to go there 3 times, I want my next trip to be just as special as the first three. So when the kids are older or when S and I save up some money and are ready to leave them for a few days, we will go back again.
