So you've decided to go visit your family.....and you're...anxious!!?!! Yup I've been. Ok I'm actually there now. So how do you survive?
Let me start by saying I was super nervous for my family to actually see how stressed I am. To see how much anger is stored inside me. Well the good news is it's going good! Thankfully my family is very supportive. Shoot my aunt even recommended me smoking pot since I live in Denver - HAHA!!
So how are you going to survive a trip to see family? I highly suggest taking that alone time they are offering. It really helps to get away and take an hour or so for coffee with yourself. And after that plane ride with kiddos, do it! Secondly, let your family help out. They want to bathe the kids, let them. Plus the littles love having the grandparents help them with everything. My brother in law played trucks with my son and he loved it! To which my son told me I don't know how to drive like he does ;) So there's that. Haha!!
What are willing to let your family help with to help you? Good luck on your next trip and know I've been there!
