It’s Wednesday and we are dusting off the blog for the first time this week. We are leaving for Jamaica in three short days for a family Spring Break trip to FDR Resort and Spa and couldn’t be more excited to relax in the sunshine. You mama’s now the deal when it comes to packing for two kiddos. The amount of time it takes to cram each and every necessity that our little humans require for an eight day excursion to the Caribbean is such a job, am I right?! We started the packing process earlier this week, and when we say packing process what we really mean is getting all the laundry done and picking up the dry cleaning so that we have actual clothing items to pack, sound familiar?
Today the babies and I ran a few errands to pick up toiletries, snacks and sunscreen and managed to get back home in time for lunch and naps so that mama could get a few household chores done and begin prepping the suitcases. Delilah was dead set on helping me pack her little flower suit case that has been sitting beside her bed for the last week. She made sure to “okay” all of her clothing items and wanted to fold and put her brand new bathing suits in her suitcase herself. She is totally killing me lately with the independence factor, but I do get a kick out of her strong personality and willingness to be a helper. After her suitcase was complete we moved on to her carry on that she filled with art, puzzles, card games and a few Barbie Dolls to keep her busy on the plane. While Delilah had her rest time, Sawyer and I packed his duffle full of swim trunks, jammies and several summer outfits fit for a week of island life. The kids are packed, Happy Wednesday… mission accomplished!
Tomorrow I plan to start packing myself and Tucker boy for a week long stay at Camp Bow Wow while we are on island time. I’m pretty sure I will need a vacation from this vacation once it’s all said and done. Speaking of a mama vacay, Mother’s Day is just around the corner and we are looking forward to a day of pampering, rest and feeling pretty.
