This past week my husband, Eli and I have been on a vacation of sorts. It wasn’t purely a trip for fun- my husband had a work conference 2 hours away at the beach, and the hotel was free. And when given the choice between solo parenting at home for a week and solo-ish parenting at the beach, there’s really no question. The beach it was. Aside from trips to visit out of town family, this is only our 4th time leaving town since Eli was born 10 months ago (all of which were for work things, sadly) and was the longest (in duration) trip by far.
And now that we’re home, I’ve realized that vacation has taken on a completely different form since our pre-baby days. I wouldn’t say it’s worse by any means, but it is definitely different.
