Paris, Interrupted

Maki

I wanted it, I deserved it, I could actually afford it, so I booked it.  Paris:  For 7 days ALONE WITH JASON.

This week we realized:  Our kids are not ready.  This life we created for our children? Stay at home with nanny instead of daycare until 4 (okay maybe longer) mommy and daddy hands on with nonstop outdoor hiking and biking and “always together “lifestyle?  Well, it is not conducive to popping out of the country for 7 days.  They are not ready for us to be gone and guess what?  Either are we.

We literally transferred a 7 day trip to Paris for one year later……and I feel nothing but relief.  I was overwhelmed.  It was the FIFTH vacation I had planned this summer.  However it was the first one that we booked at this level of an experience, and just for the two of us.  Just us.  Picnic at the foot of the Eiffel Tower with champagne and baguette….or, you know….holding hands in the Louvre….blah blah blah…so romantic.

Another year.  It’s okay.  It really is.  It was a journey to get here, and we are OK moving a few memories around to make sure that these two keep on killing it at childhood….
