....with 3 kids.
God, please grant me the serenity to accept the fact that my children may scream excessively for 9 hours straight...
That they will mash cheerios into my van carpet...
That they will not pee when we stop at exit number 74...however, they will suddenly be overcome with urgency by exit number 78...
That we will have to listen to the same Barney video fifteen times in order to appease the baby...
And give me the courage...er, the patience....
not to "pull this van over and knock them into next week".
Anyhoo, we can all imagine how this will turn out... It ain't gonna be pretty.
But we will survive.
And then we will drink excessively.
Rather Mommy will.
And Mommy doesn't even drink.
I think I just broke out in a sweat writing all that.
I am looking forward to getting there though, and I know we will make it and it will be fun!
And then we will do it all over again next week when we drive home.
On a totally unrelated note... (I am terrible at transitions)
I need to change my title page.
We are no longer a family of five with 3 dogs, 1 cat, and one hamster.
We are now a family of five with 2 dogs and a cat.
The dog had to go when he bit the baby...whew, that was a rough 48 hours.
And the hamster...well, they just don't live long.
Sadly this happened like three days after the dog incident and I couldn't bring myself to tell the kids little Pooh Bear had gone to hamster heaven.
So we are still "looking" for him...
Although the search parties are becoming less and less frequent.
My oldest said, "he probably went to live out in the field with the mice".
I'm just gonna agree with him on that one. And leave it at that.
Until next time...
Have a good one!
