It was a LOOOOONG trip. Too long.
Hucks' sleep got progressively worse as the weeks went on, we got crankier, he learned to scream at us when he wanted our attention, and to hit us at restaurants when he was ready to get up. He also had his first trip to the ER (head injury, I'll tell you about it later).
By the way, what the hell do you do with a toddler who hits you precisely so that you WILL yank him up and take him outside?
We also weren't really able to write as much as we had hoped while there. It was just difficult without a quiet, dedicated space. And, while I love my parents dearly, it's hard to live in someone else's house for that long. There were other factors that also created stress but suffice it say, we cut the trip short. In fact, we actually got back last week and I've been laying low and trying to get my groove back before jumping back into the blog.
On the bright side, we did get to spend a lot of time with family and Huck had a blast most of the time.
Still, we're glad to be home and getting back into our life.
Though some of the snow has melted it's definitely still winter up here. There's about a foot or two remaining in the yard and it's supposed to snow off and on all week. Sigh.
But hey, onward with The Toby Show. Lots of cool stuff coming up--news, recipes, stories & pictures of our travels--so grab some popcorn and enjoy the show.
