Ready Freddie

We're leaving tomorrow for our cruise. I'm excited and nervous. I have literally been packing for a week. It's all about strategy. I'm trying to bring everything that I could possibly need for a baby and a toddler for 6 days, but only as much as I am able to carry through the airport and stuff into a stateroom. Plus there's the warm weather thing - David doesn't fit into his summer clothes anymore and I put Katy's away a couple of months ago. (I'm not asking for sympathy here, obviously this is a good problem to have) And how many diapers and wipes will I need? And how much baby food? And the stoller and the car seat and the boppy and the pump...

But we'll be ready. We've got it together. Katy is really excited to get on the airplane. She keeps telling me she's going to have a cookie. (note to self: pack a cookie) She knows that when she gets off the airplane, she will see her cousins. Beyond that, she's clueless. How do you explain to a 2 year old that you're going to live on a boat for a few days with thousands of strangers and an adult size mouse? I think she'll figure it out.

I've been saving up some (short) blog posts that will be posted here while I am gone. I'm a firstborn, so I can't just give up on the whole NaBloPoMo thing, ok?

So hopefully I'll be wrapping up NaBloPoMo with a report about returning home. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving, everyone!

Have fun, be safe, tell Mickey to be nice to Katy or I'll hunt him down and beat him.
