WARNING: this is a long post, if you want to skip down to the card and not read the entry about my trip scroll down!!
Wow, can you believe it is Saturday again already! Last Saturday I was flying out to CA to be with my grand sons while their parents went to Italy! This Saturday I am flying back to NC, this has been a very busy week!!
Allow me to share some of my adventures of stepping back in time and picking up the reins of a Mom with two small children. The first big challenge came on Monday morning when I needed to drop off Jonas (the youngest) at his school first (9:00 am) and then Ethan at his school by 9:25. Actually the challenge began way before the school drop off, you know breakfast, NO cartoons until your teeth are brushed and you have clothes on which by the way does include shoes, snacks packed, thermos's filled, book bags and da da da! So out the door we go with book bags, snack bags, two boys, and one slightly harried G-Mom.
All I can say is thank goodness for Garmin!! I was taken by this friendly voice to Jonas's school without a glitch and then to Ethan's school. But wait, the Garmin put me on a freeway which is NOT the way we had gone on Saturday when Carol (my d-i-l) showed me the route. I am talking back to the Garmin and Ethan is thrilled that we are on the freeway and enjoying the freaking out of his grandmother. Boys! Lo and behold, the Garmin does the trick gets me to the right school (albeit from a totally hazardous direction!!). Whew, that being accomplished I have a couple of hours before picking Jonas up at noon and Ethan at 3:00, that didn't seem so bad and I knew it would get better as I became more familiar and confident with the trip.
