Did you know that you were going to the beach this week?
Mom invited y'all along too! Wasn't that nice of her?
She thankfully brought her trusty lap top and we have some good WiFi connection here in our room.
So, 6 hours, 3 girly's, one messy mini van, insane amounts of candy consumed, Finding Nemo watched twice, Three spankings, Three potty breaks, One stop at Bojangles for some fried chicken and we were here!
My goodness, it has never taken us so long and never have we lost so much sanity in one car ride.
Normally it only takes about 3.5 hours to get here but apparently everyone else in this little thing called our WORLD, decided to come too this weekend. So 6 hours it was!
The weather has been great so far and everyone is getting along! SO FAR.
So, the highlight of the day yesterday was...
As we were all laying on the beach just enjoying the sun, Hopie, who is 5, came running out of the water exasperated!
She shouted from the shore line, "DADDY (gasping). I need to go (gasping) potty. NOW. AND I'm NOT, and I Repeat, NOT, Peeing in the ocean!"
I quickly pretended like I was fast asleep while burying my head in the sand praying that no one heard her say that! But I heard a few chuckles a little to close for comfort.
All I'm thinking was, Thank the GOOD LORD she said, "Daddy". Because of course I would NEVER tell my child to pee in the ocean!
Well, maybe once.
So, this brought up a thought in my head while laying there. Knowing that this was indeed blog worthy material!
I want to know what your child or you as a child or what you heard another child say that made other's quickly turn their heads! Start those comments coming! I know there's some funny stories out there!!
Come on! Don't be shy!! =)
