I guess it would be kind of strange if Kalyra didn’t embrace the travel lifestyle considering who we are.
It lights my world on fire to watch her. She counts down how many sleeps she has left until we go on our next adventure. She jumps up and down, squealing with delight and asks incessant questions.
We scour photos online and in magazines and we talk about all she can do and see. She has so many things mapped out for this trip to Thailand.
She can’t wait:
We had a battle last night. She wanted to pack her bag; two sleeps before we left. But Mummy had not finished washing all the clothes so insisted we wait until the one sleep before.
She pulled out her rolling Barbie suitcase and with no more discussion packed it. I walked in her room to see her carefully rolling her dresses and laying them inside. She had packed 10 pairs of underwear, her favourite dresses, and her pyjamas.
I guided her to leave the flannel Ariel pyjamas at home and to throw in a couple of more undies. I pointed out a few more dresses I thought she’d love to take as well as some shorts and shirts.
With suitcase full, she sat on it and zipped it up.
“I’m ready to go to Thailand”
Then she sat at her desk with pen and paper and wrote a list of things we had to pack the sleep before in Mummy’s bag. (Mummy helped her spell the words- great lesson)
To live my dream life with my children and have them embrace it the same way I do rocks my world.
P.S. Don’t ever forget the sunscreen
