Man, this article had a ton of resources. I’d probably take me a week and read through them all. (Possibly, I am Netflixdistracted.)
One thing we’ve done for our kids when they’re little is a paper chain. It makes it a little more concrete, instead of them waking up every day wondering if today’s the day we fly out. I’ve also written the fun things we’d like to do in the U.S. on the links, and we talk about them when we tear them off. That gives them a better idea of what to look forward to.
Happy weekend, mamas!
