"vacation"?

Okay, I'm going to have to try to make this fast. I have no business blogging since I have had a hard day, or at least night, and it is getting to be late. but what can you do when your public awaits? well, first of all, read Shell's blog for an update of the Philly Cheesesteak experiment. Horrid. The sandwich was great, though not neccessarily worth the torture we endured for it. What she failed to mention was how weird the babies were the rest of the day as well. (A disclaimer for Bella: I'm pretty sure I see her top two teeth coming in, so in her defense she's probably in a lot of pain...) Eva was acting a lot happier than she was yesterday and was chatting away to Bella all day. She was quite cheerful, and thus, loud. For whatever bizarre reason, Bella decided that it was scary. Her face would immediately crumple, lower lip protruding and quivering, and let out a siren of a cry. Inconsolable was she from whatever code insult Eva apparently had just dished out. This happened all day long! By afternoon, Eva had apparently turned the other cheek enough times- now she was offended. The next time that happened, Eva returned with a cry herself, obviously offended that Bella would reject her well-wishes and friendship. It would have been funny if they both didn't seem so genuinely hurt. Weirdos.

Here's to trying to think happy thoughts about the girls. At this rate, I'd be glad to have a day off of motherhood tomorrow. That's the thing once you are a mother- your feet are forever trod on the road of responsibility. 'Vacation' doesn't have the same meaning for a mother. I prefer to say 'trip' instead. That way you don't set yourself up for unrealstic expectations! Fair warning Timm- I'm gonna need a little bit of a break after my 'vacation'.

I am so sorry it was such a pain, I bet it will be nice to get home and get back into your routine. Sounds like both girls are tired of being good travelers. Send Bella my way, I would love to have her and give you a much needed break to re-claim yourself a little.

VERY cute picture too! Who would think that little gem could cause so much trouble!

Bella looks so much older all of a sudden, perhaps her hair and the two teeth poking out. Very cute.

I have no insights on this strange cousins situation, only that I'm glad you and Michelle are handling it okay. It sounds stressful and loud (two things I don't do well). Good luck for the rest of the trip and the flight home.

This is quite possibly the cutest picture in the world. How can two little weirdos also be so cute? Probably for evolutionary reasons...

Jessie, I just don't know if you're telling the truth. How can something that cute be anything but a perfect angel? Just kidding. Sorry to hear that it's not going so well. Good luck.

No such thing as a true vacation for the mother--sorry to inform you.

Ok, first, she is the cutest thing! Second, I have to agree, there is no such thing as a vacation for a Mom--especially when she's travelling without her husband. Travelling with a husband does help with the vacation part of the trip because at least you can turn your kids over to him and take a nap, or do something that you woudn't normally do in the middle of the day. It's all about redefining "vacation." For me, any day my husband is home from work is a vacation.

To quote a rather famous person, CJP, "YOU be the mother". Enough said.
