Happy to report Chase and I are heading back to America for the month of June. I can't bring myself to think about the mega plane rides without Brian (one from Dalian to PDX - then another from PDX to Jackson, MS). Just thinking about taking the walking, willfull, little Miss Lolly on a super long plane trip makes my eye twitch. It's not that I don't want to spend every hour of the day with her - I do. It's just that I'd rather spend that time in a place where she can walk around and play.
I asked one of the teachers at Gymboree if she had any suggestions (I was thinking playdough, decals, stickers). She said many parents give their kids something to make them sleep. For better or for worse, I am not one of "those" parents. So I will arrive in Portland with bags under my eyes, totally frazzled and strung out - or, in my dad's words, "like the sleepy man is standing on my face."
All this just in time for my 15-year high school reunion. Is it too late to start a diet and excercize regime? (I'm sure most of my classmates have been fasting since January to make sure they are a size -0 for the reunion.)
Should be interesting - it better be! Otherwise I will have a hard time staying awake.
