Child-free Ozarks

The place we tried to book in the Ozarks rejected us because they don’t want people with small children at the resort. I immediately perked up because it’s extremely flattering to be rejected for being “a young mom” at my age. What I don’t understand is who’d want to go to a place with no shopping, no nightlife, and nothing to do except eat, walk and sleep if not families with kids. Before I had Klara I wouldn’t be caught dead at such a place.

It’s ok, though, we found another place. The only problem is that there’s nothing for a hundred miles around I can feed to the extremely sensitive N so I’ll be cooking up a storm. The cabins are gigantic, with two bedrooms and picnic tables for each family. They look a little like the Soviet wood cabins we loved going to and that weren’t bad at all.

We are going to be eaten alive by mosquitoes there, won’t we?

  1. Some people really hate kids and want child-free spaces. I don’t get it, but there is a market for that.

    What corner of the Ozarks did you wind up choosing?

      1. I think lots of us wind up dreaming of far away places and don’t bother to explore the nice things that are close by. I grew up in an absolutely beautiful and didn’t learn to appreciate it until I moved away. The area has since been developed as a bit of a tourist destination. There are all sorts of rental cabins, a winery, and other things for tourists close to my parents house. If you had told 16 year old me that people would pay to go on vacation where I grew up, I never would have believed it.
