After all the exchange on stress of moving, I'ts come down to this: Yes, it's because of the kids.
If I was to make the trip, or make the move.
Gadget-daddy and I were talking about our up-coming trip (1 day to go and counting).
So, IF I were to travel without the kids, I'd be really excited.
Walk around the city with a map;
Visit a local wet market;
Try out their local food;
Buy back a bag of raw emping belinjo;
Hunt for batik;
Eat salak fruit to my heart's content;
Maybe check out a spa and try their traditional massage...
With the boys, to play it safe, we will ...
Spend some time at the hotel's pool;
Check out some of the shopping malls;
maybe check out an easy local tour, or hire a driver for the day;
maybe visit a school, or for mommy to call and chat with them over the phone;
Move around by taxi.
Do one thing a day.
Hope it'll be memorable for the kids.
At least we will see more of Gadget-daddy this week than if we were to stay home.
