How much longer until vacation?!
The kids have been asking the same question again and again as they wear you out with their excitement. They have their bags backed. They have their favorite tourist sites picked. They have even kept their rooms clean after you explained to them you wanted to make sure that you were able to come home to a clean.
They do not, however, have to keep asking the question. You are just as anxious as they are. You and your husband have talked about resort vacations before, but this is the first time you have booked one. You are looking forward to someone else doing the cooking; someone else doing the cleaning; and someone else having to get up early and go to work. You plan to let the children sleep in and then follow them to the beach whenever they are ready.
