I didn't fall off the face of the earth. I was on vacation in Texas, visiting my parents. I say I was 'on vacation' because my mom helped so much with the kids, but stay-at-home-moms are never really on vacation when the kids are around! While I was down there, a lady asked if I work, and I said yes, seven days a week!
My mom, a frequent traveler, always does a 'trip debrief' where she intereviews each member of the family and asks for the highlights of the trip. These were my answers:
What was the best part? Going to the aquarium (or the 'prairium' as my son called it). Seeing old friends. And my mom babysitting so I could go get a mani/pedi.
What was the worst part? Having a cold for most of the visit. Nothing like being sick while traveling.
What surprised you? How delicious my uncle's new cauliflower recipe is. I can't wait to share it with you all!
What did you learn? You can carry a 33 pound 2-year-old in an Ergo baby carrier through the airport when he's too tired to walk, with minimal back strain.
How did you grow? All that restaurant food grew my waistline!
