>Lessons learned on Vegas trip number two – it’s not always the kids you have to watch out for, and sometimes two-year-olds can be embarassing.
While watching out for my two daughters, I managed to misplace my phone, forget my camera in the hotel room and lose my favorite sweater. Not to mention the fact that I was running around with baby spit up on my dress. I’m thinking no one noticed, either that or my friends are really mean. I guess I’m the one who needed looking out for on this trip.
And in the vast wisdom of the universe, I did finally learn my lesson that everything you say your young children will repeat. While we were innocently trying to teach our daughter, Ava, that every fart isn’t a poop (We were a little sick of changing “poopy” diapers), we now know she got the message, a fact we learned when she proudly announced to an entire wedding party – at the top of her lungs just before they marched down the aisle – that she farted…and farted and farted. “Me fart, me fart….ME FART!” is still ringing in my ears – and probably everyone elses. Thank god our friends love us!!
Next up: A weekend of rest!!
>I surprised myself this weekend – or more accurately, this past week. I took a road trip to Vegas with both kids in tow and managed not to forget anything major. Now, I can’t say enough about list-making…and that’s something I never thought I would say – or become! But nonetheless, I made a list, checked it twice and off we went in the new van to Vegas and the only thing we were missing was a swimsuit for Little A – and then, do they really make swimsuits for 3-month-olds? In my defense, I’m going to say no. Go lists!!
Next time: Can we survive two weekends in Vegas in a row?
