This day sure did sneak up fast! And we’re off to Croatia! We aren’t leaving until this evening but it’s a hustle and a bustle of last minute packing over here. You know, that last minute shuffle of trying to find chargers and sandals and wondering just HOW many pairs of shoes is TOO many pairs of shoes.Aki and I meant to wake up early but we were just too exhausted. Instead we were awakened by a happy voice yelling over the baby monitor:
“Henna! Henna! Henna? All Done, Henna! Hennaaaaaa!” coming from a certain toddler’s bedroom.
THAT KID! Not “mama,” not “Mommy,” not even “Mom.” Just Henna. I donno, he must have woken up and thought, I’m about to take an international trip. I’m a man of the world now, enough with this “mama” business. Silly boy. It was definitely the comic relief we needed. We both got out of bed laughing. Love you, Mateo! :)I had every intention of packing light, light, light but somehow I managed to fill my whole suitcase. Do I really need everything? Maybe. We’re going to be gone for almost two and 1/2 months. And to be fair I am sharing my suitcase with Mateo. But to be fairer, I could have done more editing.I still need to sort out a few things on my laptop before we leave and I’m a little nervous thinking that I must be forgetting things, but so far the biggest catastrophe has been that I can’t find Mateo’s clip on suspenders. Catastrophe in my world, but not such a big deal in the grand scheme of things.
I think we’ve got the main things covered.
Those of you who check in with us on facebook know about my little “talk” with Mateo last night.
me: Mateo, want to go on an AIRPLANE tomorrow?!!
me: are you going to be good on the airplane?
Oh dear, he’s not giving us much confidence. Hopefully he’ll be a flying champ like our last trip. (below). Next time we check in, we’ll be in CROATIA! Wish us luck! :)
