How to pack your family for a trip to Hawaii!

Travel as a family sure isn't easy. There is SO MUCH to remeber to pack, unexpected things you need to be prepared for, and of course there is always something you didnt think of that you end up learning the hard way! Packing our family for an upcoming Hawaii trip, I thought I would make a list of some of the things I consider essential to help families with packing for their future beach vacations. Bon Voyage!

My toddler figured out that I fake sleep at bedtime and now I’m screwed

Fake sleeping in the same room as your kid to get them to fall asleep - I think EVERY parent has done this. Haven't you seen that viral video of the mom fake sleeping on her toddler's nursery floor, then crawling out slowly after her kid passes out? The move is pretty standard, but sadly for me my toddler has not only figured out that I am faking it, but has a strategy to get me to crack too. You can't just break formation in front of a toddler like that!!! The bed time struggle is so real right now... please tell me there are other toddler moms out there who are on the struggle bus too!
