My husband thinks it'll be too much stress and work to take a vacation with our 2 year old this year. He says we'll have to wait till she's at least 4 or 5 before we can really dare a travel vacation. Sure, she's your essential toddler-- sweet, smart, and funny much of the time--and, okay, she also has a love of flinging food (and, uh, plates) cave-girl style, a penchant for meltdowns and tantrums when over-tired, and the attention span of a sand flea. That said, Mama's got the travel bug and I am hankering to get the heck out of dodge for a week (or two?) Can you help me convince my sweetie that we could still have a great time with our little wild and crazy darling along? Where would you go on vacation with a toddler? Dada is especially partial to tropical places and not too keen on the traditional family spots-- Grand Canyon, Disney, etc. Do you have any hints or tips for ways that might make it easier on all of us? Oh, please don't say stay home!
