When our eldest daughter was 2 months old, we were very much in need of a vacation. While we were worried about flying with such a small child, we took her to France anyway. This trip was soon followed by others, including to Spain, Malta and Great Britain, and many more. I am not even counting the visits to see extended family in Poland and Germany.

The travelling continued after we had our second daughter. She even celebrated her first birthday on a plane!

When we had our third child, we decided that travelling with three children is somewhat stressful, not to mention expensive. The last flight we took was months ago, to see my parents for Christmas.

However, that trip made me realize that all these years of travelling with children were not for nothing. The way we managed to handle three children without any problems still blows my mind and made me realise that it really gets easier with time.

We already have the experience. We just need patience.
