Mister has never been one for traveling, and I don't really like splitting up the family. So when my mom invited us all to the beach, I had my hesitations. But, I eventually said yes. It was just going to be my mom, Sweet Pea and I. It's not easy traveling with children, toddlers especially, so I had my reservations about the trip, but was getting excited.
The day finally came and we headed off. We purposefully left around Sweet Pea's nap time, so she would sleep a majority of the way there, she usually doesn't like the car. And she did.
It rained most of the time we were there, but it was a lot of fun. We got to meet up with an old friend from elementary school, that I don't get to see nearly enough, and her two kids. Her daughter is just two weeks older than Sweet Pea.
We also got to go swimming and shopping. My mom bought lots of clothes for Sweet Pea, for spring and summer. She also bought me some new clothes, because mine aren't fitting anymore. I didn't realize how poorly they fit, until I got into some that actually did.
Sweet Pea got to eat pancakes twice while on vacation. She devoured them, and then passed out. I gave them to her right before our ride home and she slept a majority of the way home, until she woke up. Coughed, and threw up. We pulled over and I changed her, then we came home. She didn't seem distressed once she was changed, and I was sitting in the backseat with her.
She was SO happy to be home. She ran up and gave Mister a huge hug and sat in his lap. Then started playing with all of her toys. She danced with her Violet Puppy for about 10 minutes, and wrestled with her Eleanor elephant for the rest of the night.
We had a wonderful time. Sweet Pea was very well "behaved". She got into things about a million times, but she's a toddler, what can I expect?
Also, I gained almost 5 lbs.... I just finished losing it, two weeks later.
