I was talking this morning to a friend that actually just got home from China yesterday. They adopted a 3 year old that is so stinkin cute! Anyway, she and I were talking about my up and coming trip. I was telling her that we still haven't decided who will be traveling. She suggested that I travel alone, and take Julianna (5). She knows Julianna very well, and knows that she would really be a great traveler. She is *very* go with the flow, loves to be on the go, and really has a heart for China (and all things Chinese). My friend also mentioned how great it would be for Willa to have another child there that is her age.
So I am really considering that option. Brad and I had talked about that a week or so ago. I just never thought it could be possible. Obviously, it would be ideal if we could all travel (and I am not ruling that out), but in case the finances do not work out, I need another plan.
I do think that Julianna is great company. She would for sure ease my loneliness. She really is super easy to take care of. I think if I could just pack light, make sure she understands the importance of holding my hand at all times, etc... it could be done. I know most people would think I was crazy for considering that, but with the boys not there, honestly, it would be like a vacation. HAHA! I love my boys with all that I am, don't get me wrong. However, they create, well... chaos. Traveling with Jules would seriously be super easy. I would cherish that time with her. Anyway, I would love some feed back from others. Please, please comment and share your thoughts. Also, if any of you should choose to accompany on said trip to China, I wouldn't hate that either! LOL!
Are you all tired of my travel ramblings? I am sure you are... LOL
