Damn I'm Good!

Last week on July 4th, I flew in to California from Chicago for a whole month of stay for my sister-in-law's upcoming wedding. All that explains how hard it has been for me to get online to blog. And I can also foresee that it will be this way for the next couple of weeks since I am here to help with the upcoming event. But I will be back visiting your blogs in no time.

Anyway, this is the first time I ever flew with the kids alone. My husband is still back in Chicago and won't be flying in until later. Imagine how scared I was figuring out how I could possibly fly with my 6 and 3 year old boys without having to fall from the dizzy spells I've been getting lately. You see, my boys have a tendency to throw up in plane rides. We fly with them quite often and everytime the plane finally lands, their stomach suddenly gets emptied out. Eeew I know. And for some reason they happen to do it both at the same exact time, at almost everytime. So imagine how scared I was this time that my husband will not be flying with us.

Prepared with 6 ziploc bags big enough to catch all the gross stuff, I braved through it all. And yes, they used up all 6 ziplocs and I am so proud to say -- not one stain in their clothes! With all my naseous powers I braved through it all. Funny how proud I felt that I managed the puke without anyone hearing or smelling us. Ok, let me step away from the computer and relieve my dry heavings from remembering all that happened...hehe

Congrats on your accomplishments!
I give you credit first off for even flying alone with 2 small kids but to know that they both throw up too...KUDOS sugarmama.

Have a great time at the wedding. Can't wait to hear all about it. Hope you are feeling well too.

that's a talent to survive that. You need an award. Somebody get that lady an award for best puke cover up.

BRAVO!!!

Great Day said...
