are we there yet?

November 27, 2015

I feel like we’ve been stuck in the car for 15 hours and we’ve driven hundreds of miles and there are empty coffee cups rolling around in the footwell and dirty sandwich wrappers on the passenger seat and we’ve heard the same hit on the radio at least a dozen times and we are stuck in traffic again and we will NEVER make it to the Kingdom of Far Far Away. That’s what Nablopomo feels like today. 28 days down, two to go.

*This post was written on my phone while nursing Wren from the back seat of a car parked at  Heathrow’s departures because it was the only bloody place we could find to stop and feed her after she had a monumental meltdown on the highway, which only happened because we got a freaking puncture in the countryside and were stuck driving 50 miles an hour on the spare tyre, pushing us waaaaay past her bedtime. Oh! The joys of parenthood.

    Oh yes the joys of parenthood. There will always be things that throw your schedule right out the window and the poor little ones just don’t understand. And it’s very hard on the mum and dad who just want to make the wee baby feel better again. I only hope the night went very well for you all. xxxooo

    Flat Tires are the worst when you have everything under control, but with a hungry/tired baby…UGH. That is awful. Babies are so bossy too. I just want you to know, teenagers are easier than babies. At least mine are at the moment. I also know that kids make liars out of you, so great. I just jinxed myself. Parenthood is not for the weak, that is for sure.

Penny for your thoughts?
