What happened? My normally happy smiling three month old wouldn't stop screaming. My normally obstinate, bossy almost three year turned into a monster!** Have you been there? Standing beside the dining table in a restaurant while bouncing a fussy baby on your hip and trying to bring your salad from the plate to your mouth with your left hand ??(I have no lefty fork skills!!) Pulling your older son out from under the table to find out he had kicked his boots off, then crawling under table yourself to retrieve boots, while husband signs the bill and baby's cries escalate? Oh yah - that was us- we were those people.
Today, Sunday, we are back at home with two little angels. It's pretty obvious that my boys need their routine...
If all went well, I was planning a family trip to NYC next***. Maybe Europe in the fall. Instead, we will give it some time before we try another Ontario getaway.
Please tell, what was your favorite family vacation ever? Because I need to know it is possible to travel with little ones!
*Why Niagara falls? we had to pick up a few things in the States. Niagara Falls is about an hour and a half drive from home.
**Three months is young - but baby is normally so easy! I figured as long as he was close to mom (his milk supplier) he would be fine. Wrong! My other son has been to Paris, NYC, Florida, and around Ontario with us - no problem! This time I think he was in competition with the baby to see who could get the most attention. Double fail!
***Who are we kidding? I have the whole NYC trip already planned...stay near the park, visit the museum of natural history to see the dinosaurs...FAO Schwartz...*sigh*
