So we decided to leave 2 days early from vacation. Why? 4 little kids were ready to come home and honestly so were we.
Don’t get me wrong, I had a great time. We made a ton of new memories. But if any of you have small children, you know vacation can be exhausting. They had just had colds the week before so we were also working with them healing from all that and building back up those immune systems. It wasn’t until Thursday night after Zach and I said we had had enough running around everyday, and decided to do a movie night in. Best. Day. Of. Vacation. The kids loved it. That’s when I knew our kids could care less about the beach. Sure they love going down, the ocean, new scene, you get the idea. What they love is the things we do at home….the quality time we spend together. I love that about them. They are very grateful for everything we give them, but mostly the time we put into them. Sure it’s exhausting. We are tired most days. But it’s worth it. When those little ones snuggle up to you on the couch and want to spend time with you and talk with you. It’s worth it.
So when our children tell us they are ready to go home, we listen. Everyone’s opinion matters in our home.
