Living in the city is great, intense and full of opportunities. Escaping from the city is even better: finding your true self by the beach, enjoying some quality time away from the urban craziness, is priceless!
Spend time with our kids, grocery shopping, the usual… Suddenly, we learnt the grandparents were coming for a short visit. Hummm… quickly we put together a master plan to “escape” for a little while from our “parenting duties” - leaving them to the grandparents. It worked beautifully:
- Responsible adults to watch over the kids: check.
- Enough food in the fridge: check.
- Last minute reservation for the beach resort, at an unbelievably affordable rate: check.
- Car keys, camera, tossed clothes into a single backpack: check, check, check!
(Gotta hurry – the “substitute adults” only granted us a day away from our offspring!)
