How to survive a long trip with mum
Heading on a trip with your mother soon? Is it time share, all inclusive or maybe the dreadful cruise (were you can’t leave the boat and get real alone time?). Well not to worry, here are a few tips to get you through the great times with your mother!

1. Sleep will undoubtedly cause some friction. You see it as a necessary and restorative 12 to 14 hours; your mother sees it as a freak biological mutation standing in the way of a nonstop bonding session with her child. The best time to address this issue is during the brief overlap in awake time the two of you will enjoy between the hours of 3 and 8 p.m
2. You may be under the impression that, as an 18-year-old legal adult capable of voting for a president and fighting in a war, you are ready to monitor your own sunscreen application without your mother’s input. You are wrong. Your mother will have unearthed the only tube of SPF 150+ ever manufactured in North America, and she will insist on nervously brandishing it at you every 10 minutes. happy wheels demo It’s easier not to put up a fight.
3. Don’t be alarmed when, over dinner, your mother stares searchingly into your eyes and murmurs “So how is college, really?” in the soothing yet stern tone of a “Law & Order” detective trying to coax a reluctant witness to talk. She may then divulge some highly disturbing freshman-year tales of her own in a misguided attempt to get you to talk. Don’t fall for it. Just smile politely and eat your pasta.
4. Refrain from commenting when your mother refers to the resort staff as “the help.” She is from another era. You are not going to be able to change her. Just breathe and let it go.
5. Remember: Your mother has generously taken you along to a lavish Florida resort.Whisper this to yourself when she warily eyes your outfit and asks, for the 50th time, if you “don’t think you’re going to be cold in that.” No, Mom, I don’t think I’m going to be cold in this. We’re in Miami
