Turns out when you go on family vacation you still have to do your MOM jobs. This is not a surprise to me I have been on family vacations before just realized that even though it is technically a "vacation" and it involves things like this
And a lot of this
I still have to make sure that not only do we bring everything with us but that we still have to function as a family while on vacation.
Top 5 things you have to do as a MOM while vacationing as a family:
1. Pack for EVERYONE
2. Make sure everyone still eats, sleeps, and hydrates enough
3. Clean up all the messes at condo, hotel, pool
4. Apply a LOT of sunscreen this duty can be shared but as the mom you needed to remember to PACK the sunscreen
5. Co-ordinate activities to keep everyone entertained (this means watch kids while husband enjoys multiple golf games to my one 50 minute massage)
Oh and one more thing PROMOTE family harmony. This one is easier said than done. Any tips??
