And for the moms who are thinking, "I want to come BUT.... what will I do with my kids? what about the mess from Chag? How will everyone manage without me home?"
It's possible! Plan now and experience shows IT CAN BE DONE. Bring your girls or let them do like the boys: a once in a year sleepover at a friend's. Don't worry, your house will still be there as you left it, unless your husband wants to clean up. Wouldn't that be lovely? You did do all the yom tov and shabbas preparations and cleaning for a couple days (years) and now you can treat yourself to a reward. right? ;)
