Travel with Young Toddlers, Or Things You Should Avoid

To call a trip involving wee toddlers a "vacation" is to misunderstand the term. "Working travel" or "less sleep & more labor than you do at home or anywhere else, ever" would be a more apt phrase.

Despite the Anonymous Husband being stuck on a deal for the entirety & darling Master P struggling to adapt to Pacific time, we had a glorious trip back to paradise, aka San Diego. If one must do working travel, one might as well do it while surrounded by good scenery & great friends.

Playing at a dear friend's house & finally adjusted to California time - the day before we left, naturally.

I'll be back in a few with more of my usual drivel. In the meantime, I'm working on a post to be delivered later this summer, after Master P & I take to the friendly skies a few more times, involving my best travel-with-young-infant advice:

1) Don't

2) If you must, pack half the clothes and twice the onboard snacks / diapers / drinks you think you'll need.

Off to go about the business of re-entry aka eating restorative dark chocolate ...

One of the things I dislike most is carrying a lot of stuff while traveling. Apparently, this is unavoidable with children.

Prior to having children I would not have been caught dead on vacation with my inlaws. After having children, I will not go on vacation with my kids unless the inlaws are coming.
