If you have kids then you know how stressful it is travelling with them!
I'm here to help relieve some of that stress with some tips on what you can do to limit the madness.
Don't take the kids. (Just an idea)
Go somewhere kid friendly.
This seems obvious but I do have to point out the pros of this.
1. You won't have to bring as much kids stuff with you because you've chosen to travel somewhere with a kids room, pool, or they at least provide some kids activities.
2. Plenty of destinations have Kids Programs these days (which is code for "we'll wear your kid out while you chill with a mimosa by the pool.") With any luck, you're kids will make some great friends, and even better memories.
3. Let's be honest: kids attractions are very cool, and the kids are just an excuse for you to go down the big slide, and get in to the petting zoo.
Short haul flights.
Depending on what age your children are this can be a breeze or a massive nightmare that makes you want to leave your kids in the airport Home Alone style.
I personally found travelling with a newborn easy as they sleep most of the time. The only minor stressful thing was breastfeeding because you kind of need some space to move your elbows and swing the baby the right way around.
If your baby only feeds in the footy hold...well...let's just say there won't be much coverage with all the movement. Side note, forget about feeding in those tiny aeroplane toilets!
Anyone older than a new-born isn't going to appreciate being stuck on a long-haul flights, so I guarantee they'll make sure you'll hate it to!
Ever tried a stay-cation?
Do that classic "be a tourist in your own city" thing. I'm always amazed at how much I never knew was right here in my own city!
Or, if your budget is too tight for a schmancy hotel room in the big smoke, why don't you pitch a tent in the back yard, and sleep under the stars. #HappyCampers #MarshmellowsOnTheBBQ
Let it go!
Just like Else: Let it go! Seriously! The next time you're about to yell at your kid(s) for something, just stop and think: is it really that big a deal? Is what they're doing going to impact anything or anyone?
I know with my kids if I'm already in a mood then I will yell at anything they do and that's not the kind of mum I want to be so I take a step back and gather myself, take a deep breath and think to myself "is me yelling at them going to make a difference or should I just give them 5 minutes of my time so they stop bugging me for 10 minutes?"
