Me & You Time
I would love to say that I do this on a regular basis with each child, but it is a little more hit and miss than that. How often, where, and when often depends on our schedules, the stage my children are in and a lot of other factors. However, it is enough of a tradition that if I let it go to long my kids start to ask about their "Me & You" time.
I love our one on one time and combining it with a big or small trip makes it even more special. There is something about travel that helps my family bond and grow closer together. One on one travel allows me to edit our experiences to one child instead of 5! If you have tried to plan a vacation with a toddler, elementary, pre teen, teen and adult child- you know that finding something that will please everyone can be a challenge. At the end of summer I snuck away with my 9 year old for some waterpark fun.
