We used to be adventurous, and then we had kids.
At first, you trick yourself into thinking you will still be the exploratory, spontaneous, easy-going people you were before, and maybe you are for a while. Things with one new baby was not the slap-in-the-face-change we had expected, and we found an infant to be portable, light, suited to sleeping anywhere and willing to simply join us in our day-to-day journey strapped to our chest or back. But then he started walking, talking and being a person. He had opinions, an identity and an agenda. And then we had another one of them. Slowly you transition from being two people with babies strapped to you to being four people, and as everyone knows making decisions by committee (especially when half of the committee is under four) is super hard.
So now, our greatest adventure is to go car camping for a weekend. Which we did last weekend. And that brings me to this point: camping with little kids is terrible. Here’s why.
Okay, but after all that – still go camping with your little ones. Why?
