no need to apologise-we are all different, that's what makes the world go round so taking that into account, much as i love my children,i would not want to share a room with them for our whole vacation, nor would they want to. when dd and ds were younger, our boiler broke down one winter,we all slept together for a few nights until it was fixed-our bodyheat was the only heat we had! as buzznina previously said, some of our night time tales were hilarious, some were disney orientated, some were delightful childhood pure perspective takes on life. going on vacation together is lovely, it is indeed totally precious-all sharing a room, beds and bathrooms is most certainly not, and as i posted earlier, not what we want to pay thousands of dollars for. we could go on holiday in europe instead, much cheaper, but that is not the experience we want to have.
