I have just been sitting here drawing a floor plan, and making a schedule and asking myself ever so quietly: Have I really thought this through??
Thought what through, you may well ask. Only going camping with two extra kiddies!
Yes, well it seemed like a brilliant idea at the time: "Take a friend each for the kids so they will play happily and we can all relax more, without the constant niggling and squabbling..."
OK, I still think it's a great plan... but the truth is that we are only now realising there'll be just a teensy bit of extra planning (and work) involved.
I'm from the More is Less school of parenting. As in, more kids is actually less work. They entertain each other and you can chill out more. Gee I hope my theory holds true to some extent at least.
The thing that reassures me is that Auckland is only 40 minutes away... if it all turns to custard (which I really really hope it won't).
And... as we all know, disaster stories make for great blog posts! I promise to take lots of pictures.
Do you think I'm slightly crazy???
