  1. HA! Kind of like how my kids and I always stay five minutes too long at any given party… I love the new look, and so happy to be included in your sidebar accolades! You girls rock- this is fantastic.

  3. Ha! We had a ten day vacation this summer, and at day eight my daughter said “I’m loving our vacation, but I’m about ready to go home.”

    • Yeah I was always pretty done with my 2 younger brothers after a few days of relentless togetherness. I was DEFINITELY felt that way after a CT to Chicago road trip squeezed b/w my 2 brothers in the back of a toyota corolla without AC. I was 12, they were 8 and 4. Why yes, it WAS hell!

  5. I think I have developed mad skillz in knowing when it’s time to pack up and GO. I look for warning signs like irritability, twitching, short tempered-ness, and sweating as signs the vacation needs to end. Then I pay attention to how the kids are acting too… ;)
