30 Day Blog Challenge: Day 19

Day 19: Something You Miss

Well, being a parent there are those typical things like sleeping late, sleeping all night, being able to pick up and go out whenever you want, having no cares or worries b/c you aren't responsible for anyone but yourself...but to have those things back would mean not having my babies and well...then I just don't miss those things!
I do miss traveling, though. We go on vacations a lot now, but they are short weekend trips or sometimes week long trips (and I do love every minute of them!!!). I used to travel internationally a lot. I have family in Switzerland & Egypt - I've gone on vacation with friends to Spain & spent spring break my senior year of college in Italy. For now my kids are too young for that kind of travel really - I do want to take them places, but I'd like them to remember the trips, too! I want them to be cultured and see what the rest of the world is like!! So hopefully - this is something we'll get to do again one day as a family.

Yesterday I said I regretted that I hadn't lived abroad while I was single - as much as I would hate to be separated like that from my kids - when they are older I want them to have that desire, too. The world is a big place - I want them to know all about it!

  1. I think that's a great thing to want for you kids. My dads military career instilled a huge wanderlust in me and I can't wait to be able to see more of the world.

  2. I think that you children would love to see the world but agree with you that it would be better to take them when they are a little older so that they will remember the trip!

  3. I would love to travel like you. Can I come to Switzerland with you? :p
    Thank you again for the sweet award, it warms my heart!
    Oh! And also, the band that sang "Phantom of the Opera" on my blog are Me First and the Gimme Gimmes. They are a punk cover band, and they are awesome; I love their covers! :)
