Becoming a parent is such an honor and a privilege. The moment you become a parent for the first time, you realize that after the birth of your child, you instantly see life in a new, completely different way. Sometimes the line between love and sacrifice is blurry, and often interchangeable. You lose sleep, you stumble around to multitask, you sacrifice a lot of things you used to do, and you no longer do the things you used to do. One of those things is, more often than not, traveling. Many people claim and preach that travel and toddlers don’t mix well together and many others believe it. It simply is impossible to travel with toddlers, they say. Many parents resigned from their adventurous lives and brand it “a sacrifice” they have to make once they have children because what good parent would ditch their children for a weekend getaway?
