Going, Going…

There once was a woman named Sue
Who had far too much packing to do
For her family trip
If she made just one slip
Their plans could all turn to doo-doo.

So she made her boy lots of Nat books
And calendars and Tabblos so he’d look
At the pages inside
And enjoy the plane ride
And we could be off tenterhooks.

Still, you wouldn’t believe my day
Max and Ben had their check-ups, by the way
Ben made the doc laugh
Max’s growth — still off the graph
And I’m somewhere between “Oh, God,” and “Oy Vey.”

But really, I think we’re all set
There’s nothing left for me to forget
Bathing suits? Meds? Make-up jars?
I even got 15 Atkins bars.
Colorado: You ain’t seen nothing, yet!


You go, girl and your wonderful family!

All that and you *still* found time to make an amazing poem! You go, girl! Have a great time! “Grab your coat and get your hat. Leave your worries on the doorstep…” 🙂

This is real silly…

When Ben went on his first plane ride at age 11, I could see the fear building up in him on his face. He was squeezing my hand so hard I thought it would break.

All of a sudden, when the plane was lifting up in the air, and all that cabin pressure was upon us, I thought , “WHEEEE!”.

“WHEEEEE!!”, he says, and started smiling. “WHEEEEEEEE!!!!!” We sounded like a couple of idiots, but he wasn’t scared anymore.

For a total of 4 plane rides, two up, two back, it worked.

We just got back today from 8 days in Colorado.

I’m sure you’ll enjoy it as much as we did.

Oh and don’t worry about Nat. He’s going to have a lot of fun and the rest of the family will have a fun time too. Each will be well-suited to what they’re doing.
