Thinking of going away on a holiday? Put your child in a germ-free bubble to keep them away from those nasty bugs all kids seem to pick up at school. I'd say they need at least a week off of school BEFORE a holiday to ensure they stay healthy. Plus, you should probably stay home from work. Just sayin'
And travel with a full array of pain killers, anti-emetics, cold medicines, cotton balls, anti-depressants, etc. Oh and band aids too, in case you are like me and tend to cut yourself while shaving. Boo.
