6 Reasons Why We Need A Getaway

My husband and I have 6 children, 5 boys, 1 girl, ages 11 to 1. Our house is constantly loud, crazy, messy, and just in general chaos all the time... We don't get to talk much or spend much time together. The last vacation we had together was our Honeymoon. A Caribbean Getaway would be a dream come true for us! Please vote for our video and let us have a break from this craziness!!!

I have 2 boys and need a vacation, I can't imagine 5 plus a girl. You definately deserve a trip.

These are six beautiful, smart, and well-cared-for kids. Granted it gets crazy sometimes, but you two are devoted and loving parents, and for THAT you deserve the vacation! Good luck.

You have our vote for the Caribbean Vacation. Sometimes you just have to get away for a short bit of time - kinda like getting a second wind.

I entered a contest to win a Caribbean vacation once- in the fine print I later found out that we were also agreeing to switch our phone company, and it took months to resolve it. Hope you have better luck. PS- we didn't win the vacation.

Bonnie says ... on Tuesday, Mar 17 at 4:40 PM

Now I know what you mean when you come in to work and say it's so peaceful in the office!!! (usually there's only 1 of US crying).... Yes, you DO deserve a tropical vacation!!!!! I hope you win!!!

Jill says ... on Tuesday, Mar 17 at 8:16 PM

Really funny video! You definitely deserve the vacation :)

Nick says ... on Wednesday, Mar 18 at 2:18 PM

i think you definitely deserve a quiet vacation with uncle paul because all the time at home you are having problems with kids such as homework or getting them into baths and stuff like that and maybe while your gone the kids can go to someplace fun

Uncle Paul says ... on Wednesday, Mar 18 at 3:54 PM

Does that mean I have to bench press them while you are gone? You do deserve a break with all you put up with!

Mike & Jackie says ... on Friday, Mar 20 at 12:21 PM

Best of luck -- hope you win! Everyone needs a vacation once in a while.
