Traveling may be hazardous to your health…

Posted on: September 17, 2009

Mental health that is.

And within the context of traveling with a potty-training toddler and a nursing infant.

We got back from Tennessee in one piece. We had a blast, but I was glad to be home and so were the girls. I never realized how challenging it must have been for my parents (i.e. my mom) to travel with 4 kids back and forth from Tennessee to Texas every year. Oy. I’m just tired thinking about it!

Highlights from the trip:

– seeing my best friend from junior high for the first time in 10+ years.

– going to Dave’s exhibit opening for Seven Deadly Sins.

– eating at Shoney’s with my brothers.

– eating a hot fudge cake at Shoney’s. All. By. Myself.

– having lunch with John.

– deck time.

– watching Julia run around half naked. All week. 😉

– going to the private opening of Twilight Visions – which is all about Paris.

– spending 24 hours with my best friend.

– having the best trip home in a long time.

Julia on the front porch with my family's dog, Buddy. You can't tell, but she has on no pants.... ;)

Dave has this skeleton for a shoot he's doing. Julia didn't bat an eye at her "lunch mate", except to get a little mad that he was in her usual seat.

Omi and Hannah. Beautiful.

For whatever reason, Hannah didn't sleep very well while we were gone. But, towards the end of the trip she started sleeping on Omi's bed and loved it. Must have reminded her of being at home on our bed.

I’m so glad you all had such a good time! But, I know you’re so happy to be home. 🙂

It was a highlight of my week to see you too. And, Jeremy told me when we got back in the car, “Good taste in friends, babe. They were really great.” My only regret is that it was too short! Leaves us looking to get together again, right? Glad you got home in one piece and had such a memorable trip. Blessings, Sarah

[…] Last August we started potty training Julia. Things went smoothly until we went to Tennessee for Labor Day. After a week of sporadic training, Julia came back home very resistant to going on the potty. I […]
