As I get ready to depart on my first international trip in a very long time I can’t help but get emotional. While I’m very excited for the trip (even though it is for work) I will sorely miss my two little ones. I haven’t been away from them for more than two days and when I was I was not too far away so if anything happened I could be back home quickly. I am looking forward to uninterrupted sleep for a few nights and plane and train travel always gives opportunities to catch up on my reading! Then, upon arriving back home later this week I have a friend’s wedding to attend where I will get to catch up with old co-workers. The next week is 4th of July already and Ike and I will be taking the girls up to a house we rented with Ike’s parents and sister up near WI Dells! It is definitely a busy summer so far!
The title of this post is kind of silly. My sister went to London for a vacation back in April and brought the girls back some souvenirs. Ella got a pink t-shirt with the London 2012 Olympics logo on it and Amelia got a white onesie with a big, bright British flag on it. I was slightly taken aback when I was dressing Amelia in her new onesie and realized there were only two snaps instead of the customary three snaps. As I so often do I double checked that I hadn’t misaligned the snaps which is a common thing that happens when dressing babies (especially the full pajama onesies with the footies)! But no I hadn’t missed any snaps…British onesies only have two snaps!
This pic is one I took of the girls after I got back from my trip. I realized I didn’t have a picture of Amelia in her British onesie after I wrote the text above. I also wanted to show off the dolls I brought back for Ella and Amelia which are the official mascots of the London Olympics…nothing says Olympic spirit like one-eyed monsters!
