Travelin' On

For the next 10 days, Mary Poppins is in a different physical location. Thanks to the Internet, my virtual location has remained unchanged. After braving 2 snowstorms yesterday, our flight safely landed last night (3 hours late) and we are enjoying a jolly holiday with relatives. The not so jolly part is that we're dealing with a 2 hour time difference. With 2 kids, that translates into a nightmare. Today I spent over 3 hours actively trying to get Duet to fall asleep for her afternoon nap. Unsuccessfully. If 3 hours of rocking, singing, back rubbing, and snuggling couldn't lull her to sleep, I don't know what legal method could have. Call me when they start making baby unisom. I'll so be on board.

"Call me when they start to make baby unisom"
You and me both!

I called you this afternoon... I couldn't remember when you were supposed to depart. Have fun!
I'm glad you all arrived safely.

Remember the melatonin trick? I'ts legal AND effective.

Mary Poppins said...

Ok, so I left you a message the other day and apparently it didn't work. Go blogger! Wow, ok. Well as I originally said...I'm glad that you guys made it safe. I was worried about you and the storm. I thought for sure you would be stranded. How is spending time with the fam? I didn't call you because I didn't want to interupt your time there. I'm sorry about Duet not sleeping. Have you tried Benadryl? Another legal and safe trick haha. I hope it's getting better so you can enjoy your time with happy babies.
