|i know. not in focus. but hello, too funny to care.|
ps: he does exist!
So, we're in Madison. We so love Madison. The kids were total champs on the drive down, to the point that J and I had more than one "OMG are we insane having another kid and starting that whole insane baby deal all over again?!?" moment. Ah, well. Too late. And I hear number three comes out ready to roll with the punches/spur of the moment weekend road trips, anyway. (Fingers crossed.) (No, I don't want to hear about your #3 who is crazypants, keep it to yourself.) We got here and attempted to hit up State Street for lunch and browsing and people watching, but those plans were foiled by some sort of running thing (IN FEBRUARY?!) so instead we drove in traffic-cop guided circles around the Capital for a half hour and I almost peed my (brand new maternity) pants before saying "screw it! The mall! Let's just go to the FREAKING MALL! Out of our way CRAZY MADISON RUNNER PEOPLE!" We ate lunch at a real live restaurant, albeit not one so fancy that waiters visit your table, and only two of our two kids dumped their drinks in their laps! (Uh...) And it only took an hour for the maniacs to fall asleep for a nap in the same room back at the hotel! Only an hour of insanity! But seriously? The sound of the two of them laughing hysterically together in the bedroom about who-knows-what? Sweeter (and funnier) than nap time silence, for sure, and definitely made me feel like we made a good choice with this mid-winters' escape from the woods. Next up, the pool. And hopefully a hastier bed time than nap time, because after THAT J and I have a dinner date with our beloved Chin's (a la takeout, obvi, no need to call CPS) and then after we lick our plates straight clean we're probably going to bed at 8pm before the inevitable excited toddler 6am hotel wake up. And by "to bed" I mean I'll be sleeping sitting up on a couch with a super stylish nasal strip so I maybe get more than three hours of sleep. Unlike last night. SNIFFLE SNUFFLE WOE IS ME. (Again.)
Tomorrow? Are you ready for it?
I know. I die of excitement.
Thanks for all the kind words and encouragement on the baby news! You all are the best, and I do mean BEST. And also thanks for the Team Green Backup. It's going to be fun. Please remind me of this at 19.5 weeks when my resolve weakens, mmkay? Think of all the money we'll save! For example? DVF is coming to GapKids and I won't even be tempted to buy anything for baby no-name! Which just maybe kind of sort of means I'll buy twice as much for Miss V ... but STILL! Big money savings and such!
