Today Josie wanted to get her ď8 itemsĒ together to go into the suitcase. Not sure when to tell her that not all of those things will be comingÖ.maybe most of them, but I think the tissue box we can do without
She also grouped together some jewelry she would like to take with her too. Here she is as Vanna White showcasing those fine items.
Iím starting to go through a bit of panic mode about now. Going out on errands with Josie is such a breeze these days, and is always a lot of fun. However now being the sole person to watch over her without a sidekick with me has gotten me nervous. I have traveled often by myself, and then of course lots of times with just Arnaud and I, but ever since we had kids, we have always gone together and for whatever reason Iím just freaking. I am not a total idiot, I can take care of one kid on my own, but this is BIG and Iím just panicky. Iím also feeling guilt too. Like will this take away from our BIG family trip in Sept?? Will she be excited for that too?? Iím overthinking I think?? I should just calm down, yesÖ.OK, just chill out right??
I need to move onÖÖÖ..So since we have been talking a bit about fashion and comfort while in Disney, I think Iíll share 2 more items that I have found with youís guys. Since stretch denim has been around (and since I have had kids) I really hate wearing regular denim jeans. For whatever reason I have never found a pair of stretch denim capris though. The ones I do have are fine, but they are regular denim and they arenít as comfy as they donít give as much. Well last week at my good old standard Old Navy, they have new stretch denim capris. They are called the Rock Star and they are FABULOUS!!!!! Nice and light, stretchy and cheap! I am super happy with wearing them all day. No need for me to model a pic for you as Iím sure you will see them quite a bit in my trip pics. Iím sure Iíll be wearing them more than once. Yes, I have said itÖ..I do tend to wear my jeans a few times before washing. Iím sure Iím not the only one. Or wait, am I??? Great, now I sound skanky. OK, well, I doÖÖ..but I swear I bathe daily at least. My 2nd new item I love has to do with makeup. I pay for a photo CD and Iíd like to look somewhat nice, so in the heat I LOVE the Bare Minerals Matte powder for your face. It covers just enough, has an SPF in it and best of all itís a nice matte finish. I feel as if I have nothing on my face, and to me, that is the best!! OK, so there is some of my new finds that I love. Tonight I just went crazy in the kitchen making the biggest dish of tuna casserole ever. Arnaud informed me he plans on having it for breakfastÖÖÖÖ.gag, I sure hope he is kidding. Josie and I made our blueberry muffins for the boys and Iíll make the soup tomorrow. Sunday will be just relaxing with the boys and getting last minute stuff taken care of. I hope itís a nice day, I want to run around on the beach with my baby boy. Iíll sure miss him, but guess what I wonít miss????..................................NO DIAPER CHANGING FOR 4 WHOLE DAYS!!!!!!!!!!
I think I may freak out too if I were in your shoes, but then I'd tell myself what you did and just chill out.
Josie is too precious with her jewelry all lined up.
tuna? for breakfast? gag is right!
No diaper sfor 4 days will be awesome - icing on the cake!
I love the pics of Josie with all her jewels! You two are going to have a great time-- and this trip will make your next one even BETTER because you'll have gotten to do some of the things the "stinky boys" might not be interested in.
You are definitely not alone in your skankiness - - but you do need to take some deeeeeeep breaths. You and Josie will be fine on your own!! And I'm sure on the family trip, she'll be excited to show the stinky boys some of the things she did on this trip!
Have a great trip, Linny!
DisneyLand too many times to count; DisneyWorld: ('82; '94; '00; '04; '05; '08 - twice!; '10;'11 - twice); DCL (3 ships): ('00, '05, '06, '10, '11); DVC Hilton Head Resort ('06, '07, '08, '09, '10, '11, '12, '13)
Ok, now we're off on a cruise this afternoon for a week - I am taking one pair of jeans and that's it. They'll be washed when I get home, but I quite often wear my jeans for a week - anything else I tend to wash after a day, but not my jeans. Why? Because a) they're comfortable and b) they're quite a pig to dry, so that's my excuse!
Playing with friends at Disneyland Paris during our trip to Paris with PassPorters. From left to right: Hazel, Nadine, Meri, Melanie and me.
OK, first a couple of deep breaths. Ahhh, that's better I'm sure if I were in your shoes I'd be freaking out about going solo with one of my girls too, but I have faith that you will be just fine! I bet you're going to come home wondering what the heck you were worried about in the first place.
Sign me up for the skank club too then, I'll admit to wearing my jeans quite a few times between washings, you're not alone sister! I'll have to check out those Rock Star capris, I love me some ON jeans!
I Bare Minerals, but I've never tried the Matte. I'll have to check it out before the summer gets here.
I too would be a bit nervous about a trip with a kid and no DH, but I'm sure it will be fine. And what kid wouldn't be excited about a Disney trip. I'm sure Josie won't mind having to go again in Sept. Such a burden she'll have to bear.
And you aren't the only one who wears your jeans twice. Or the only one who only likes strech denim either. My fav!!!
Good luck getting everything done. And enjoy your time with the boys. What I wouldn't give for 4 whole days without diapers.
So nice to know that you bathe every day. (just kidding) You're not alone in wearing jeans more than once. You'll be fine with Josie. A few years ago, I took just my son with me to WDW and it was great. It's a real chance to get to know each other better as people, not just as Mommy and daughter, if you know what I mean. It won't be long now!
I think that Josie and my daughter Lexi would get along great. Lexi has a messenger bag she likes to take everywhere, and she always wants to pack a box of tissues in it. It also looks like they share the same love for jewelery.
I will add myself to the list of skanks that wear jeans more than once before washing. They wear out so much faster if you wash them after every time you wear them.
I am sure once you are in WDW all your worries about traveling alone with Josie will fade and you will just be able to enjoy your time with her.
