Our family picks up and travels a lot more often than many families that I know. We aren't world travelers, most of our destinations are within a 4 hour drive from our home, but I like to change my scenery and explore someplace new when we have the chance. In fact, we just got home from a weekend away.
I bet you think the rest of this post is going to tell you about the fabulous weekend we had.
It's to whine about how I got no sleep because parents felt it was appropriate to leave their children unattended to run like a pack of wild animals through the hallways at all hours of the day and night.
And now? Now I'm going to ask you why parents think this is appropriate.
I get it, vacation is for kicking back, relaxing and not being so strict with the rules. But mayhem? That isn't so much fun. When you throw all rules out the window it affects others around you. It isn't like the door to my hotel room is like the door on the vault to Fort Knox. So please, take pity on your neighbors and remember to keep your voices down, don't slam the doors, and please, please, please, teach your children some hotel etiquette. This mom will thank you very much.
