What do I mean by refunding? Read on. We did this same California trip 2 years ago. Let's start with the drama of 2007.
Kalyssa was sick, so before we actually left, I took her in to see the Instacare doctor. I told the doctor that she had Croup. He told me that she didn't. Halfway through the flight, Kali was struggling to breathe. We had to get oxygen on her. We spent 6 hours total in the emergency room while she was treated for...what? Oh yeah, Croup.
The rest of the trip went off without a hitch....except for the last day. During the drive to the Wild Kingdom, Abbi was in the back seat doing her reading and she got sick. She refunded (my word for throwing up) all over the back seat of the car. The funny part, was that she tried to catch it in her hands. So imagine 2 tiny 7 year old hands cupped by her mouth.....so it went (I'm laughing as I'm writing this) up on the top of her head. Seriously! It was disgusting, but it was hilarious.
Anywho, moving on to 2009....
Kaisey was a little pissed when we strapped her in her car seat (in Baylee's seat) for the flight. But she did well. We came in for the landing, and we are preparing to exit the plane. All of the sudden Kali starts crying LOUDLY, "I threw up!" I look down and she sure did. We grabbed the puke bag, and she filled er up. For HELLS sake!
So....what would a trip to California be like withOUT refunding?? We may NEVER know!
7/22/09 We were at the store and I pointed out a bedspread that I liked. Kaleb says, "Mom, that's Goth." I giggled and said asked him what he thought Goth was. He told me that "Goth means you like black."
3/30/2009 We were at Target and Kali saw a new bobble head, "Mom, I want the "cowpitter". Which is catapillar in Kali-nese.
1/15/2009 Kaleb says, "Mom, is that toy gonna come out of my paycheck?"
12/22/2008 Abbi "Hey, it's the Eve, of the Eve, of Christmas Eve!"
12/19/2008 Kaleb asked "Mom, is coloring an exercise for your hand?"
12/15/2008 Kali says, "Ooops mom...sorry it was an ACCI-DIDN'T." The funniest part, is that she's been saying that for about 3 years. I finally had to tell her that the word is ACCIDENT.
11/2/2008 Kaleb was working on his spelling words. I told him to spell 'we'. He says, "W-i-i."
I was making dinner, when Abbi says, "Mom, I need a fork," and Kaleb says, "Mom, can you get me a cup?" and Kali says, "guys, she's not an octopus!" 10/19/2008
When Kaleb was about 2, I was ordering at Sonic, and I ordered grill cheese sandwich's for the kids. Kaleb began crying, and I asked him what was wrong. He told me, "I don't want it girl cheese, I want it boy cheese!"
This lady in front of me was driving terribly. I kept saying "Lady!" Well, I finally gunned the car to go, and the drinks from McDonalds, spilled all over the car. Kali says, "Her tripped us!" Kali was 4 years old.
When Kali was 3, she found a pair of her shorts in her drawer. She put them on. It was still winter, so I told her she had to wear pants. Kali said, "I am. Little pants mom."
