Okay, not today or even anytime relatively soon. But in the forseeable future. And hopefully twice.
We booked plane tickets to New York for a short vacation this summer. Bub will stay with his grandparents and we have the following things planned: Mets game, Phillies game (along with a full day in Philadelphia) and a show. I'm shooting for The Little Mermaid, but BD isn't on board yet.
Yes, we're going in July. Yes, I know it will be miserably hot and humid. And yes, we will miss our son. BUT, it will be awesome. And he will be spoiled beyond comprehension by his grandparents. Don't feel bad for him.
I love the planning for the vacation almost more than the vacation itself, so I'm imagining shopping for flowy dresses and cute sandals, getting a well timed pedicure and maybe splurging on an iPod touch to keep my hyperactive self busy on two long flights.
Oh, AND, I'm on the hunt for a TV series to download for the flights and other downtime. Suggestions are welcome!
Lest you think we're terrible parents for leaving our child behind as we jet off for some adult fun, we're also planning a family vacation. On a whim we bought a time share property a few years ago so we'll be phoning in our exchange request this week. If this works out I'll take back every bad thing I've said about said vacation property. (Seriously, what good is being able to give my time share to my kid when I die if I have to book a year in advance to go anywhere desirable?)
