The date has finally arrived! Our Big Family Holiday is underway and I should (hopefully) be sunning myself on a Dorset beach, or exploring the scenery right about now. But, oh my goodness, it is rather stressful preparing for the journey. I mean, I had to wash piles of clothes, pack up bags and suitcases for a family of four, tie up the loose ends at home, and of course, update my business promotions to keep it ticking over while I am away. Phew!
Well, I did the best I could while having the children under my feet. I am sure we brought way more clothes and accouterments than we actually need (it is only 1 week!). Mothers have to be prepared, however. It has been ingrained in us by generations, I think. And I had to prepare for a week away from home with cloth nappies as well. Our youngest is not ready to potty train, as much as we try. She will not sit on the potty, or the toilet, and if we try and force her she turns into a plank of wood, or something thereabouts. It is a challenge. So I have to take a mixture of nappies and training pants, along with cleaning supplies, so we can continue the battle. Some holiday, eh? Ha ha, the joys of parenting!
