Her tips for preparing for your destination:
Don’t try to haul it all! Rent the items you need and have them delivered to your hotel, Airbnb, VRBO, family/friends’ house.
“As parents we get to be prepared patient, and peaceful but there are still
things that aren’t in our control. Traveling with your children brings those feelings right to the surface. I am learning to be easy on myself and remember that I can always research well, pack strategically, and plan well for my destination and the rest is just a season. We do our best.” -Katie
