I am not sure what my highlight was? Perhaps it was when the magpie swooped, then stalked us, sitting on a fence staring into our car windows menacingly until we drove screaming from the park. Or it was when the 4yo made us stop so she could poo on the side of the busy road. Or there was the moment we decided it would be best to just let our 2yo eat all the butters on the table while we dined on the biggest schnitzels we've ever seen at the local pub.
Or it was when the same 2yo screamed each time we carried her tantruming body from each playground we visited. She would then thrash about while the two of us held her down to put her in her car seat. Then she would scream until our next destination.
This short video sums up the joy.
And then this happened.
And then this.
But while we wrangle the kids, we don't wrangle our life. We put aside the daily work/house demands. Although it's the "same, same, but different" we do arrive home more refreshed. Well, as refreshed as parents of three children can be.
What are your family holidays like?
