We've had a long draining weekend here at the P residence. We watched Kay's cousin Friday night and Saturday, she's 4 and their personalities just completely clash. Every 3.5 minutes there is a break down of some sort. It is very exhausting to say the least. Then I've been battling this nasty cold that wont go away, and M has been getting up at 4:30 am the past 3 days, so yesterday afternoon after my cousin left I was so looking forward to just relaxing.
It was 6:30 pm, just after dinner when Kay walked out of her room with her swimsuit on. I told her that it was bath time, and asked her why she has her swimsuit on. She didn't say a word, and walked out of the kitchen. I told her to get ready for bath, that we were going to get to bed on time tonight because we've both had such a long day.
5 minutes later there was knock at my door....
Hmmmmm. I answer the door, and it was one of Kay's friends from school and her mom. WTF? Apparently Kay had invited her friend over to swim! AND get this....her mom is DEAF! She did this without asking or talking to me about it. She's 6 and setting up her own play dates!??! So instead of trying to explain what had happened to her mom (don't take your voice for granted!), I just wrote down on a piece of paper that we would drop her off at home at 7:30-8:00....so much for relaxing and quite time.
You bet we had a talk after she left. You cant invite your friends over unless I talk to their parents! Luckily they play really well and it wasn't that big of deal, but boy oh boy Kay is always surprising me. This one will keep me on my toes that's for sure!

She gets on all fours, rocks back and forth, then sort of pushes her self backwards! I am so so so excited that she looks like she is getting ready to crawl because Kay never crawled. Never. She hated being her stomach, therefore would always roll over, and therefore never learned to crawl.
Instead she butt scooted. In a sitting position she would left cheek, right cheek, left cheek, right cheek her way around. It was the funniest thing ever. We called her Booter Scooter. I know I have a video of it somewhere. Then she walked. Totally by passed crawling. So this time I WILL HAVE A CRAWLER!

Going through security took a LOT longer with an infant because you have to take them out of the car seat/stroller, fold it all up and put it on the x ray machine all while trying to manage your luggage and said older child. Thank god for the "family friendly" security line too; which I have taken advantage of for the last 6 years and will continue to do so for the next 6 ; )
I needed to bring her infant seat and stroller, so we ended up buying these bags to protect them before our trip. Let me say I am so glad I did this! Those bags were inexpensive, universal, and worked great. These people don't give a shit about your belongings! We gate checked those and hopped on the plane. Its funny because as your walking onto the plane with a baby in your arms, people look at you like you are carrying a little terrorist. Terrified as you walk by...are they gonna sit here? Are they gonna sit here?..Please keep walking, please keep walking, I can just hear them chanting.
We got settled in and it worked out perfectly because it was time for little M to eat right at our take off time. I made her a bottle, covered her with the blankie while she sucked away as we took off, then slept for the whole first 1/2 of the flight! This was only half the battle because keeping Kay entertained for that long is quite the task too. I packed plenty of crayons, paper, worksheets, activity books, snacks, and her portable DVD player (which was a huge fail because I forgot to charge the battery, bad mommy!).
