Oh how simple life was without a baby. I wouldn’t actually say we had a ‘holiday,’ I would rather call it a shift in work responsibilities. Instead of leading a meeting about some topic or another, I was dealing with poo explosions at the airport. Whilst the holiday was a nice break from my actual job, the work involved in 24/7 baby-ing is intense.
Not to mention that our flight to Spain (..our first flight with a baby may I add..) was delayed eight hours, one hour we spent sitting on the flight dealing with a screaming baby and his second poo explosion while my boyfriend was extremely ill (the baby, my Dad and I all got sick two days later), which means I had to take care of Bear (without a pram) for seven hours in the airport. No sleep. Crying. Very stressed out Mum. Pulling hair out and shouting.
OH and our flight back home was ALSO delayed and diverted to another airport so we had to take a two hour bus to THAT airport, wait another three hours and finally board the plane at 3am. The flight finally arrived at Gatwick at 7am and I started work at 9:30am!
Did I mention that we had a baby with us the whole time?
Anyway, it feels like I am complaining a lot but to be honest the last few weeks have been really rough, there will be a happy post soon…. To be fair, I had a very lovely time in Spain and I am so grateful that I was able to spend some quality time with my Dad (he just moved there). Actually, the video I created of our trip really made me smile. All in all our first family trip was a success (minus the plane rides).
Here is a video of our first family holiday:
