First, I'm writing this on Brett's Macbook and I WANT WANT WANT WANT!!! I know I have better things to spend my money on, like food, bills, clothes that fit but damn do I want this computer. My crappy old Dell Laptop just ain't cutting it.
Anyway, our "local" vacation has been amazing and I'm sad this is the last full day. We rented a house with 8 other people, all who came in from out of town, so even though Tybee Island is only 40 minutes from our house, we still feel like we are on vacation. The amount of stuff we had to bring for Max is pretty ridiculous. We even needed a friend to take some stuff for us. Of the 758472548927 bags and boxes we brought, two were for the adults. For being so small and helpless, this kid sure needs a lot of shit. I guess really, if we tried we could have significantly pared down. He doesn't really need the exersaucer, bumbo AND tummy time mat, but it's nice to have the comforts of home. It's easier than using actually parenting to entertain him.
You know what else is nice? Having 8 babysitters! Yesterday the girls explored downtown Savannah while the boys did guy stuff. I assume farting was involved but I didn't ask. Since they took Max, I felt naked without a diaper bag, stroller or sling. Just one tiny little Coach purse? I forgot how awesome that could be. Oh and after spending all day being passed between 10 people, Max slept for 7 hours straight. Unfortunately, we only took advantage of 3 of those hours since we stayed up later participating in a bloody Catchphrase battle.
This was just the break I needed. I feel like a real person again. I promise pictures soon!
