Long before my husband and I had children, we planned to see the world. Long before I was married, I had a goal of traveling as much as I could once I was an adult. I always knew that I wouldn’t let becoming a mother change that. My two children travel with me everywhere I go. We’ve taken trips as a family of four and I’ve traveled with both kids on my own. My kids have traveled domestically and Internationally. They’ve taken road trips and been on airplanes. My philosophy has always been to start them early and travel often. They are seven and four now and have traveled more than many adults. Now, we are prepping and planning for our biggest trip ever — a 12-day family vacation in Thailand — and I can say with confidence that there are innumerous reasons to travel with your kids.
