One of my best friends -- a mom of three kids under 9 -- is taking her kids to JAPAN for spring break. Would you do it?
Momlogic's Julie: I love to travel.
Since having my two kids, my travels have slowed a little bit, but I have tried not to let motherhood stamp out my wanderlust. My kids, 8 and 5, have been on more plane trips than I can count. And, yes, I've been thrown up on at 20,000 feet -- but lived to tell the tale.
But my friend Michele definitely takes things to the next level. She goes on adventure treks with her kiddos -- age 9, 6, and 3. In fact, when I asked her where she was heading for spring break, she said JAPAN. Which is a 14-hour plane ride away! And, no, she doesn't speak a lick of Japanese.
Wow. She's my hero!
When I took my kids to Hawaii when they were 3 and 5, some said "they're not going to remember it, so what's the point?" Well, there are always pictures and videos to remind them of the great time we had. Plus, I believe that travel helps shape who we are, and will make our kids braver and more adventurous, even if they don't remember the details.
