We’re back! I hope everyone had an amazing holiday season. Welcome to #iPPP! Mama Mash and I want to see your funny, your yummy, your heartfelt, your favorite phone photos of the week. Link up below!
We had two of our family Christmases at two different hotels this year. Just for fun. And it was fun. Mostly.
What do you mean, mostly? How could going to a hotel for Christmas not be fun? There’s a pool in the middle of winter, there’s eating out (or in), there’s somebody else cleaning up after you.
I’ll tell you what’s not fun about it.
I know, he’s a charmer. Just look at that face! But, it was 10 pm, you guys. Toddlers and hotels DO NOT MIX.
I’m exhausted just thinking about it. Not convinced?
There is nothing NOTHING in a hotel room that a toddler can not reach/mess with/open. Door handles, refrigerators, toilets, lights, phones, microwaves, beds, door handles, phones, door handles. I hope nobody tried to call us because the phone was unplugged immediately. And if the top lock on the door wasn’t locked, he was headed down the hall.
This particular toddler is a great sleeper most of the time. The exception? When someone is in the room with him! He didn’t go to sleep a second earlier than 10:30 pm on any given night, and that was only because we had the luxury of a suite at the second hotel and I went in the other room while everyone else was out playing games in the lobby. And then in the mornings? Nightmares (or something) that made him wake up before dawn and cry loudly. Which made me jump up and get him before he woke up everyone else in the room. And it’s all downhill from there.
And THEN, after you’ve spent the whole night NOT sleeping with the toddler, you wake up and there is one measly coffee filter pack for the whole room. I call BS on that one.
And naptime? FORGET NAPTIME.
Has anyone had any good toddler hotel experiences? I may or may not want to hear them.
