The most magical place on earth does not come without stress. We just came back from a trip to Disney in October and I slowly realized that we had to go about navigating our trips a little differently. While neither of my boys have been diagnosed with anxiety by a doctor, they do have anxious tendencies. Going into that situation completely unprepared can make for a stressful situation for both parent and child. If you are planning a trip to the parks, here is some useful information on how to handle anxiety at Disney World.
You probably already know this but my family LOVES the waterpark. My children think they can swim (should probably enroll them in some lessons) and they take any opportunity they can to get in the waterpark. When it comes to birthdays, we haven’t done a party since RJ turned 2. We love to travel and my kids love new experiences. They honestly are happy just being in a hotel but we try to give them experiences that will create tons of memories. So when the Kartrite Resort and Indoor Waterpark opened up earlier this year, we knew we had to get there. And let me tell you, birthdays are an absolutely amazing time to do it! Here is why you should consider spending your birthday at The Kartrite Resort and Indoor Waterpark.
The holidays are a big travel time for us coming from a big family. We spend a lot of time on the road, and if we’re lucky this year we’ll spend just as much time in the air. My children are young and I know for a lot of people traveling with kids especially when they are young can feel overwhelming. This is why I developed a guide to make your holiday travel with kids a little less stressful. After all, we know that children are really the rulers of the road. Here is some advice for holiday travel with kids.
It’s no secret that fall is the absolute best season, don’t debate me. The weather is often perfect, and it is the beginning of holiday fun. When I was a kid we went pumpkin and apple picking in school. We did hay rides and corn mazes and I looked forward to the start of the holiday season. Do they even do that in school anymore? I only have a kindergartener so I could just be unaware but I haven’t heard any pumpkin or apple talk from any of the children that I know that are older. The child in me still loves these activities and I take the boys to the pumpkin patch EVERY year. It’s a tradition I’m not willing to let go of. So of course I scouted out my favorite pumpkin patches near NYC, and I can’t keep the goods to myself.
