Vacation is not the same for mom. We're the activity planner, the safety coordinator, and the ring leader. This video basically captures it all.

Do you recognize this mom? Are YOU this mom?

Vacations are high-stakes for mom: we want you to make memories, have fun - but not too much, explore the outdoors - but avoid coyotes, go for a swim - but don't get too much sun, and darn it, the weather had better cooperate.

It's summer breaks like this that make moms around the country feel like summer vacation is never long enough, and also maybe a few weeks too long. We love the kids, but we maybe breathe a tiny sigh on relief when you head back to school - so we can rest.

But until then, don't track sand in the house.
