This year will be totally different from years gone by. This year I will not leisurely lay by the pool for most of the day soaking up all those cancerous rays reading People ( 'cause you know laying by the pool is no good unless you catch up on Brad and Angelina!) and dipping in the pool from time to time to cool off.
Jon wont try to coax me to come out past the break with him or beg me to "just get on the surf board"! I wont be the only one on a float out in the ocean this year and I probably wont be on the beach for more than 30 minutes at a time either.
No more staying up late playing Nerts or watching some of Will's crazy movies! No more ALL DAY shopping excursions at one of the best outlet malls in the South. Don't worry though, I WILL go shopping. Just not all day!
Nope instead this year I will have the distinct pleasure and honor of pulling around two little munchkins in the pool instead of tanning. I will get to see the wonder on my little angels faces as they see the ocean for the first time.
Instead of slathering myself in sunscreen, I will be wrestling two monkeys to get sunscreen on their little bodies so they won't get fried and I wont get called a negligent mother! I will be thinking about naps and bottles and meal time and bath time and bed time and not much else. It wont be a vacation like all the ones that have gone before. It will be so much better because our children are finally here to share it with us!Be back Saturday. Hope everyone has a good week!
