Fun On The Run

J-Man chillin in the boothSo the five of us finally all have Saturday off and instead of breakfast and cartoons we have an odyessy planned. Breakfast out, pick up veggies at the farm, a trip to the Bouncy Playground, starting at 8 am.

Flash forward to almost 11 am, restaurant closed, veggies gotten, finally made it to another restaurant in time to still get breakfast before they stop cooking it. Miss O is under the table and only speaking in whine. H-Bomb will not stay seated for love or money (or even juice). J-Man went into scrambled communications mode and only after five minutes of piercing whining did we figure out that he wanted to chew on the lemon from The Missus' water.

Food comes, is mostly disgusting, we move on. Bouncy playground is a big hit. Everyone's on the merry-go-round which is making both parents want to puke. Then all the short people fell off. The Mister toddled off to the weeds to see if vomiting would help, it didn't. Then the whole family wound up sprawled on a picnic table and The Missus decided it would be a good time to let the crew know we're expecting.

And suddenly...

We we all talking in nice voices about the baby. Ultrasound, birthdays, Mommy's tummy, possible names, how I was never in Mommy's tummy because she's not my Mommy. For ten minutes we just sat and talked like a family on TV.

Every once in a great while there are those moments that make it all worth it.

i just wanted to let you know that i am completely in love with your family. between reading your blog, pamela's and jill's it seems that they always cure my homesickness and somehow make it harder to be away all at the same time.
