Such a nice grandma!

On our way home from Chicago yesterday, we stopped at Denny’s for dinner. Both kids were hyper as can be, super happy to be out of the car, talking in LOUD voices, etc. There was an older couple in the booth behind us and I was getting so paranoid that our kids were driving them crazy. Dan and I really tried to keep a handle on it all, but they were still pretty loud.

When the couple got up to leave, the lady came to our table. All I kept thinking was, “please don’t say you were irritated…I’m not in the mood”. But she said the complete opposite. She started out by telling us that we are doing an excellent job with two kids that are very obviously stir crazy from being in the car and that she remembers those days with her kids. She then talked to the kids and told them how cute they were, etc.

It was so nice and totally made my night!

So thank you nice Indiana Grandma!!!

I’m back in the car

We hit the worst traffic jam in the WORLD last night and ended up getting to our hotel at around 2am. Z woke up giddy as can be and B was barely able to lift her head off my shoulder to look around…she was that tired.

Sadly, it was not the hotel with the water park, but they did have a small indoor pool with VERY warm water. The kids and I had fun for a couple hours and then just bummed around until dh was done.

Can’t say I’ll be going with him again. I’d rather be at home with the kids. Unless he is going somewhere really cool!

Guess where I am???

Right now I am sitting in the passenger seat of my husbands car, blogging away while he drives us to Chicago! Unfortunately we won’t be staying more than one night. He has to be in Chicago for a business meeting and we went along for the ride and to play in the hotel pool. The kids are ecstatic!

He is on the phone with a Holiday Inn that has a water park! This should be interesting. Me…two toddlers…and a water park! Too bad I don’t have my camera with me. We may just have to pick up a disposable water camera!

Fun fun fun!

I wanted to shove ANYTHING in my ears

My son had his 4 year check up today and my goodness I wanted to seriously shove pencils in my ears. There was a mother in the waiting room with her two boys. They were curious, energetic 3 year old twin boys. But, in my opinion, were not doing a thing wrong. Like most doctors offices, there are toys, books, a large fish aquarium, etc. They walked (yes walked) from toy to toy.

Every 2 seconds (literally!!!) you would hear in this shrill voice “Joel and Cole get over here”; “Joel and Cole, what did I tell you about running inside?”; “Joel and Cole…”. As mothers, we all know how long we are going to be in a waiting room. Let the kids walk around a little. They couldn’t move a fraction of an inch before she was yelling at them to stop moving. When she finally got them to sit down next to her, all you heard was “Joel and Cole stop kicking your feet”; “Joel and Cole stop making that noise”; “Joel and Cole, I told you not to do that”….and so on.

Usually I am really tolerant of a lot of things. Crying babies on an airplane…doesn’t bother me in the least. Hearing a mother say her kids names a million times in 30 mins…drove me crazy. The kids were being good! Leave them a lone lady.

My gosh!

As a side note…my son is 41-1/4 inches tall. To go down the water slide at the pool, he needs to be 42 inches! He was so excited when I told him that he is very close!!!
