It was our 1st wedding anniversary last week so I the wife and I decided to have a small break abroad for a a few nights. We were very lucky that my sister-in-law and mother-in-law offered to have the two little ones while we were away, leaving us to have some much needed alone time to spend together.
What that meant though, was transporting 4 nights worth of kiddie supplies to the in-law’s, and boy was that a lot of stuff!
Our car (a decent sized SUV I point out!) was stuffed with all sorts including nappies, bottles, baby food, clothes, travel cot, baby seat, pram, car seat. Every space was full with something or other. There was also the loading and unloading of the car, carrying it all out of our house and into the in-law’s. That was a workout in itself.
Once the car was empty and the kids dropped off, we packed the car with out cases to head the the airport. The boot looked bare and our cases looked lost in the vast space surrounding them that only minutes earlier was rammed with the stuff for the kids. I chuckled to myself that two fully grown adults going abroad for a few nights took only only a minuscule amount of space compared to that needed for two tiny little people (and 90% of that stuff was for a six month old!).
Anyway, the break was great, weather was amazing, sun was beaming hot, hotel was fantastic (won some brownie points with the wife for booking such a nice place!) but now we’re back to normality and have to try and get our baby back into a routine, which I hope doesn’t take too long, Daddy really isn’t enjoying the all nighter’s again
