On this week’s group chat, we talk about our recent winter travel, share some tourist-attraction disappointments on our Friday speed round, shout out some stuff we like on the Roundabout Roundup, and do some shameless self-promotion. Here’s your road map to the episode:

02:42 What We Did on Our Winter Vacation — Being in charge of everybody’s good time can make a vacation not so much fun for Mom. Ditto sub-par wifi. But we made it through our recent sojourns to Arizona, the Catskills, and Luge Camp. Bringing work along, it turns out, helps.  

13:16 Speed Round: Tourism Fails — While we’re on the topic of travel, we recall some less-than-impressive tourist attractions we’ve paid money for, including un-PC tour guides, a cement penny, and an elevator ride that’s not for the faint of heart.

21:31 Parenting Roundabout Roundup — Terri is enjoying her new laptop’s snappy Gelaskins outfit; Catherine just can’t stop playing Starbucks for Life; and Nicole’s using My Fitness Pal for her New Year’s resolution. 

25:56 Shameless Self-Promotion — Terri wrote posts for Friendship Circle on New Year’s resolutions for parents of kids with special needs (easy ones, don’t worry) and feel-good special-needs stories from 2016; Nicole has gathered the top 5 posts on inclusion on her Inclusive Class site; and Catherine wrote about why risk-taking is healthy for kids on her VeryWell site.

Thanks as always to Jon Morin for our fun in-and-out music. If you're reading this somewhere without hyperlinks, come to for the full recap experience.
