Traveling for the holidays is one of the most stressful things we are willing subject ourselves to every year. The only thing that makes these travels worse is having to figure out the logistics with an entire family in tow.

There is always so much prep work involved with traveling with your family.

Mami wants you to leave the house cleaner than when you had visitas for Thanksgiving. And it always takes the whole night before your trip to get it done.

Your sibling is always trying to pack like it’s a year-long trip.

And every year you have to calm mom down and help her get her maletas in order.

Me: I think we just hit something.

Mami: You gonna snitch?

Maybe it’s because it is just random. Or maybe it is because he thought a bottle of tequila in his carry-on would be just fine…

And you are always the one that mami asks to search for the missing person.

And you’ll find them getting food because, in their minds, “Hay tiempo.”

You finally settle into the flight and start to think you finally have it all past you.

But then you realize that you have to make the trip back…
