Go Home?

One of the drawbacks about doing a vacation like ours has definitely been the amount of upheaval.  Because we wanted to make sure to visit everybody, we only stayed a max of two nights in each location, which was  extremely disruptive to Bug.  I kind of wish I had thought this through more, but the truth is, it didn't occur to me how upset he would be.

Pretty much every night of our trip resulted in a massive tantrum at bedtime, with him begging and pleading to "go home."  "MAMA GO!  DADA GO!  GO HOME!  GO NIGHT NIGHTS HOME!"  One night I cried because at bedtime, when he normally wants me, he started in with, "No want Mama.  Dada!  Dada!" and he proceeded to scream until Jon came and took him.  I know, I know, I shouldn't let it get to me, but after all of the tantrums--and we've had one every night except for the first night of our travels--kind of take a toll after awhile.

Overall, Cat held up pretty well, but he's seven months old so as long as Mommy and Daddy are around he's pretty cool with whatever surroundings.

I definitely don't think we will be attempting something like this again for a long time.  If we do travel, it will probably be to ONE location.  Yes.  But we don't have any plans for the foreseeable future, and I think I'd like to keep it that way.
