Mom and Dad have been very busy these last two months. We added another client to our little company that has basically sucked the fun out of what we do and although we are grateful, we were really really busy.
Our crafts and walks suffered during this particular time because juggling the clients we have seemed overwhelming at times. I also got news from Dad, that we were going to be traveling at the end of May. So we had to prepare in advance for everything with our clients before we went out of the country.
Your favorite lines of “What What did you say?” were also said in Spanish, “Que Que mama/papa?” yeah repeated several times. So the first time your dad took off and you kept saying this it annoyed me. But I just repeat things one time and that is it, I am not falling for your tricks little lady neither is papa!
We prepared you for our impending trip by talking to you about planes and how they function. Also passing through airport security was going to be tricky because you would have to walk through the detectors by yourself.
We had Bianca helping us out for a week straight at the house and it was like going 60 mph with all the stuff Papa and her and I did. Lots of arguements misunderstandings it was stressful. But the work got done and once things went back to a slower pace, it was easier to do things with you.
You also decided that while pop was working you were going to work too. So you would and still sit in the duck chair and work. When I get up to cook you stop and play with legos, clay, and your other toys.
When I say that pop took care of all the travel details and plans, it was really amazing. I hope you learn how to plan trips from him because he is awesome.
He even had a back up plan for Juanga’s pet sitters. Jennivette and Ramon her boyfriend stayed with JuanGa and came several times and it was love at first lick for all three of them.
As the days got closer papa did a countdown of how many days were left. We bought you a little book back with wheels so you could roll it in the airport. Papa read that it would make you feel like you were part of the packing. It really helped. He even researched how instead of gum use jelly beans to ease the pain of air pressure in the airs.
You were heavily into watching Peppa Pig and asked me one day when we were going on holiday something that only British and people in Europe say. It made us laugh because you even said that only Dads and Little Girls go on holiday and not Ladies like me.
You helped pack and the day we left you were so excited you said good bye to JuanGa who was going to be taken care of by Jennivette and Ramon. We were so happy that they were going to enjoy the beach and we were going to be stress-free about who was going to take care of Juanga.
We went through airport security and you followed all the directions we gave you, you looked out the window in the waiting area and pop and I were nervous and excited. I had to take a calming supplement and it helped me focus on making sure you were enjoying yourself.
We got on the plane and you put your seatbelt on, we had bought your elmo headphones, and when the plane took off we were looking over the beach where we had just left a few minutes ago. We gave you the “sweets” and the air pressure did not bother you because you were entertained with the licorice and jelly beans. There were several kids on the plane too and they all behaved just like you did. You watched TV after watching movies and you fell asleep.
When we arrived at the airport, Uncle Rahul was waiting for us at the baggage claim area and since we had been talking to you about him, you went right with him. I had not seen Uncle Rahul since 2010.
He had a carseat for you and pop to put together and it was a bit chilly for us having come from over 80+ degree weather.
You amazed me at how excited and well behaved you were on the plane you even got wings from the captain who flew the plane.
For the June highlights I will go into detail about all the things we did on our first family trip.
