Is Holidaying with the Kids a Pain or a Pleasure?
By AdamShare on June 12, 2013
So the day has finally arrived, the day that I have been dreading and dreaming of, well mostly dreading. Today is the day when I leave work behind me and take the kids away for the week. Well, 5 days actually but who's counting.
I am excited to be able to have a break from work as it has been a while since I have had a prolonged period of rest, but am I leaping from the fire in to the frying pan? I suppose we will see. I have 3 young daughters (1, 2 & 3), so any bright ideas I may have had about relaxing will unfortunately not come to pass. I say this with an element of sadness but more importantly a sense of reality. I live in hope that I am wrong.
Our journey will begin in a couple of hours when we will board the train to Bognor, our destination will be Butlins. I have never been before so I do not know what to expect. I really did not fancy boarding a plane to an exotic destination with a baby and two toddlers so I thought that this would be a good choice instead. There looks like there is plenty on offer for the whole family so maybe it will not be too painful after all.
On a more satisfying note I have hoodwinked my mother in to coming. I achieved this by lies and deception. I figured that if I was going to suffer I would bring everyone down with me. I care not for white knuckles or kicking and screaming, all that I care about is sharing out the pain in equal and fair measures.
The kids are now up and are very excited so I am going to have to call a premature end to this, just as I was starting to enjoy myself. I will post an update a little later and tell you about our journey, and for the curious amongst you I will let you know how many times they ask - are we there yet? I'm bored! I want a wee! I'm hungry! I'm thirsty! and I don't feel well!
So, Pain or Pleasure, what do you think?
