So, clearly my daughter and I don’t spend enough time together. Clearly, all of us sharing one bedroom, doing studies all morning, exploring the world and each others’ nose hairs is not close enough for us. Clearly, we need some time together. Clearly.

And the funny thing is we actually feel like we do. We really, truly want some time one-on-one to hang out and talk and create special bonded memories, just the two of us. Some time where no one else is competing for finishing the line of that joke, or your sandwich. And so, we’re off to a ‘just girls’ day. How ridiculously amazing and satisfying is this?

Is it possible that a mom who literally gives her child the world can still feel guilty for not doing enough with her? Apparently so. 🙂


Here’s us at the beginning of the date… all excited for all the adventure to come.

Here’s us during the date…. all freaked out from the fish eating away at our flesh.

And our girls’ lunch out.


Ever had those magic moments with just one kid? Ever taken your child by the hand and spent a few hours just him, alone, in the world? What was that like as a parent, knowing that you are letting your child know just how precious he is? Do you think your child still remembers it? (I bet he does) Share with us, we’d love to hear…

Join us as we scale the globe, fall down, get up, make fools of ourselves, cry, laugh and do awesome adventures and those little normal everyday things too.

We’d looooove your help in spreading the word about our family and our site. Ask your friends to like us in facebook. That’ll help us tons.

See you later…connect with us,  ok? twitter, facebook, this awesome family travel blog right to your inbox,
and our Youtube channel. We’d be honored to have you with us.

  1. Yes! It’s vital that we divide and conquer. One on one is easy and a joy. My two kids together is fighting and squabbling. I love going off for walks with one or the other of them and having a good chat. If we do any school work ( we do occasionally!) it’s always one on one, half an hour each.
