Wow! D1 must be a whiz. I am sure D1 takes after her parents (at least dad), who, if I remember correctly, is an IITian;).
Well so you did miss D3 => missed hom:).
Awesome post. The checklist is a nice idea. Enjoyed reading it.
I love taking the kids out to lunch. It makes me feel so grown up. I’m not sure about vacationing alone with them though – will miss the other adult too much.
Terri: This wasn’t a vacation, but something that daughter had to go to, and son had something else going on back home, so we divide and conquer. 🙂
Tdna: Thanks. 🙂
Ok: It was a team effort, she had her role to play in it. Pitching for your school eh? 🙂
You must be having the smartest kids in the world (not to mention the luckiest, with a mum like that). So whats next in the pipes? Is there like a national level Lego robot thingy?
I liked the line “Feeling guilty about not feeling guilty about not missing home.” Double negative aptly conveys the dilemma.
But you need to work your way to a triple negative – “Not feeling guilty about not feeling guilty about not missing home.” I know – easier said than done. 😀
Sweeet!! :–)) Good to know you had great fun :–)
SK: yea, it was! 🙂
BPSK: Maybe one day, who knows what the future holds ;-p
Baph: ah no, we trudge along just okay. Nope, no more lego matches to attend, for us. We are done for the year I think, much to the kids’ relief! 😀
Proud mommy eh [:)]
super mommy –> proud mommy –> happy mommy. 🙂 good for you!
I dig everything, and of course, one day do indeed aspire to spend such quality-time with spawn of mine own, living in heaven that is suburbia.
Just that, I’m a tad troubled about the last bit on dreaming about legos and robots. What’s up with that? I mean, is it mandatory to dream of electric sheep to be a super-parent?
Joy: It was 🙂
Cyd: Nooo, just spending 48 hours with legos alone would be enough me thinks! 🙂
Dushti, sb: 😀 of course! Moms are such suckers you know 🙂
