In Aruba…

March 21, 2013

Everyone we met…

…thought we were the coolest parents with the best stroller.

…thought we were the craziest parents for traveling with three kids and that stroller.

…wanted to know if we would try for the girl.

…knew there was no one trying for any girl or any boy.

We learned…

…that parenting with a buzz is the best way to parent.

…that parenting with a buzz will only knock us out at 9pm.

…that starving our kids before hitting the buffet is a great idea.

…that bringing the Kindles to the buffet is another great idea.

…that we don’t care who is judging about the Kindles at the buffet.

…that we may never read on the beach again.

…that it is possible to read a novel on the plane if we turn the pages with our nose while children sleep on our arms.

…that people will laugh in disbelief that my child and I are sitting next to THEM on the plane!!

…that there will be a kind person all the way in the back, with an empty seat next to her, who will smile when we show up with our child after searching the plane for two empty seats.
