1 - Someone announces they have wee'd in the pool
Fingers crossed it's not your child!
2 - You spend the whole holiday asking your child to put their hat back on
.....is there any way to super glue it to their heads??
3 - Someone drops an ice cream on the floor
4 - Staff will make a fuss of your children
.....and your kids will probably hate it
5 - Siestas actually happen
My children are all of school age and never take a nap.....unless we are on holiday. Late nights, early mornings and days packed with activities mean that everyone gets to chill out in the afternoon.
6 - Arguments over pool toys
Whose turn is it to play with the beach ball? Can I lie on the lilo now? Why is that boy trying to play with my water gun?? The poolside arguments are endless.
7 - You agonise over whether to leave the kids in kids club
Your hotel provides free childcare and you know you'd be a fool not to accept....but then the worry and guilt hit you and you decide not to....until you reach argument no784 and decide you're sure they'll be fine.....but then you spend the whole time they are there worrying if they're ok, check on them multiple times & can't relax anyway. Argghhhh!
8 - They eat the same food for breakfast, lunch and dinner
Holidays are the only time you let your kids eat pancakes for breakfast, chips and ice cream for lunch and pasta for dinner......every single day.
9 - Nappy changes/toilet breaks will take 30 minutes
Trying to strip down a child wearing a wet suit so they can use the loo or changing a swim nappy certainly isn't the easiest of tasks.
10 - You are dragged to the dance floor to join in with party dances
Despite your protests you can't deny your child's puppy dog eyes and will be dragged to the dance floor to join in with the Music Man during Mini Disco
Do you agree? Have any of these things happened on your family holidays?
Do you agree with my list?
