Holy cow, y’all, it feels like I haven’t blogged in (*Squints Voice*) FOR-EV-ER!
Last week, my mom, sister Bridget, Huff the Tot, and I went to Virginia to visit to my sister, brother-in-law, and their brood. It was so good to get to see everyone (and the sites) as well as watch Hermione bond (and fight, ha!) with her cousins.
Travelling in itself is stressful, but add a toddler to the mix and a pregnant, hormonal woman to the mix and you’re basically asking for disaster.
Huff the Tot actually did really well on all flights. She just played with her toys or watched a Disney flick and was content. I’m not a good flyer, so I was basically having a panic attack every time I heard a squeal from the engine or felt a bump of turbulence.
All in all, the trip was really enjoyable! There were some parts, though, that were tough. Like when Huff the Tot woke up in the middle of the night puking or was so crabby that I was frustrated beyond belief. Don’t get me wrong; my mom, sisters, and brother-in-law were all extremely helpful, but it was tough to be away from Huff the Hubs for so long–particularly when Hermione would say, “A go home to Daddy!” (way to twist that knife in my heart, kid).
One evening while we were away, we ate at On the Border after a day trip to Washington D.C. I was exhausted, Huff the Tot was exhausted; basically everyone looked like extras from The Walking Dead. It was then that HtT decided it was a good time to have a meltdown. Which caused me to have a meltdown. Needless to say, while I was crying in the OtB bathroom while my brother-in-law walked around with Huff the Tot, I felt like a crap mom and really needed a molten chocolate cake all to myself.
Later that night as I laid in bed, I was scrolling through Facebook and came across a video that had me laughing so hard I was afraid I was going to wake up Hermione. It really helped me lighten up. I figured I wasn’t the only one who needed to see this, so I thought I’d share it with you! Hopefully this will help you to giggle and get through today’s “toughness”.
And, because Halloween is this weekend and we all know “That Mom”, here’s another video. Enjoy!
