One friend swore against long distance travelling with her young kids – as she would say, it is not a holiday as all she would do is cater to their demands and needs.
This came to my mind today at a restaurant, when I had to leave the table 3 – 4 times to accompany my kids to the toilet. Imagine the calories burned and I have not even finished my food then. Now you know why having kids is like taking safe diet pills – you WILL lose weight!
Eating had to be done whenever I can, on top of serving and feeding them. Towards the end, I ate alone as my husband took them for a walk instead of trying to force them to sit at the table, doing nothing – except attract unwanted attention.
But that’s just life with young kids with their kind of characters.
There are kids who are content to sitting quietly and properly – but that’s not ours and we have learn to accept them as they are.
