elodie and i are catching a midnight flight to bali. thankfully i talked to my best friend who takes her two small children from san francisco to jordan every summer. she had the most wonderful perspective saying, "children don't need to be entertained every second" which counters every travel with kids post i've looked at in the past few weeks. i think she has a point. if i am frantically trying to entertain her, sticking things in her face to keep her every move engaged, what am i teaching her about down time? discomfort is something we all have to experience at one point or another, like it or not. i set the tone of our travels with my energy. so today i am taking an extra long yoga class and will hopefully lead the way for her to relax, read books, sleep a little, cry a little, and just sit and hug mama. for 22 hours. eek!
all orders placed on the littlest shop will be shipped after i return on april 9th. see you on the other side!
