I realized last night it had been awhile since I had posted anything. Which is bad on my part, I promised myself that I wouldn’t get too busy to post at least a couple times a week!! The last week has been pretty hectic though, and the next week is promising to be just as, if not more, hectic!
On Saturday the kids and I are going to be embarking on a 6 hour journey to go visit my parents in Winnipeg. It comes with a lot of prep work. Mostly because we are planning on being out there for a few months. And you know, the whole one of me and two of them flying halfway across the country with a connection in Toronto. If you are prepped for that, you are asking for trouble!
So I have invested in a double umbrella stroller (I was going to use a carrier for Nick, but since I am going to be 25 weeks pregnant the day we fly, I don’t see that working well in my favor!) I bought Alex a color wonder (I remember giving him a normal marker in the car once… hubs wasn’t impressed with the purple door.. so I figured a marker that can only color on special paper is safer) I bought him a super cool wallet that holds crayons and a notebook. Some cars. Some little toys. And of course child sized headphones so he can watch Blue’s Clues to his hearts content, as long as he is content.
I’m I am making this trip out to be a lot harder in my head then it will be in real life. The hard part I am sure is going to come in July when Hubs and I drive back out to NB with a 2 yr old, 1 yr old, and a newborn in our Toyota Matrix. That part of our trip is going to be when the real fun happens. But we’ll worry about that in June or so when it is a little more impending.
For now, I need to maintain enough sanity this week to last the 6 hour trip on Saturday. The light at the end of the tunnel? My mom and dad are going to be waiting when we get off the plane in Winnipeg and I can pass the monsters off to them and sleep until I can’t sleep anymore!!
Love, hugs and more to come later!
