Hotel-ing

 

One thing we have done a lot since moving is spending time in hotels.  Lately, Baba has been really busy with work, therefore he took us along with him.  Alhamdulillah we had good time…definitely beats sitting at home.  The boys also got to enjoy attending a conference, and sitting in a summit to get a glimpse of what Baba does.  There are times when he is so busy, but alhamdulillah, we really try to make an effort to keep them involved and drag them along to as many events as possible and I really believe they benefit (albeit can be exhausting at times for both them and me).
Sometimes I worry that my kids are becoming spoiled with all this hotel-ing.  Mashallah they’ve been to more hotels in the last couple years than I had been to before I turned 20!  I have seen glimpses of spoiled kids here n there…. like when they claim they dont need to clean up because the cleaning ladies will. But I have also seen the benefits of traveling with them… like when Yusuf gave his candy to the waiter at the restaurant. Its all about balance, right? Afterall I have kids, not angels….there will be ups n downs… strengths and weaknesses… I just pray that at the end of the day, the good outweighs the bad, and these experiences are shaping them into kind, productive, caring people, Ameen.
