I remember hearing before I had my son, that once you had kids, you couldn’t travel as much. Sure, there is such a thing as a school schedule but travel is not so limited. And let me tell you traveling with a kid is actually fun . Well, except for when they throw up on the last day o the cruise due to too much candy or they decide to throw a temper tantrum in the middle of the Caymans. Stuff happens. I, just as easily could have needed up throwing up from eating too much candy on the cruise. I know for sure I have seen adults get a bit toasted and lose their meal. And them I couldn’t chastise and change behavior. But back to the good things of kid travel.
I have previously extolled the virtues of traveling with my son. His curiosity and wide eyes soothe the travel soul. Its a beautiful bit to see the world through his eyes. Let me state here that it is also just fun. My son’s silliness with a drum that we just bought him is just silly. It is awesome to feel silly. My son’s goofiness in peeking through a fish bowl in an aquarium can be contagious. Who doesn’t want to goof around when on vacation? Having a kid allows you to act like a kid every once in a while. Don’t we all want to feel young while we are also filled with wisdom attained through our years?
Go ahead and enjoy that trip with your kid. Be a kid. A wise kid.
