Over the years Drew and I have been lucky with our children over traveling. For the most part they have stayed healthy and have traveled well. They seem to enjoy seeing new places - which is a good thing if you are in this family.
This year for Thanksgiving we went to Singapore - and it seemed at first that our luck of healthy children had run out. As we were checking in at the airport, I could tell Ben was more than just tired like the others. While is was early-early-thirty, he was not himself. He did have a runny nose and had the "blah's" but also could have been running a fever. I was not looking forward to a "drug and drag" vacation (that would be pouring drugs down the child and still dragging them around a tour). Out of all of our kids, he would be the one not to do well with that at all.
But, thankfully, after a nice long nap at the Manila airport, he woke-up bright eyed and more like himself...ready to irritate all siblings in sight.
He was generous though....no matter how well Drew and I tried to avoid it, we caught the cold and we were the ones being drugged and dragged!
More to come on our Thanksgiving in Singapore.....
