We woke up at 2:30am Saturday to board a 6am flight and managed to rally the troops for twenty hours until we arrived at my in-laws after ten years of traveling (most of those years were spent stuck in a turbulence c/o the storm from hell.) I have the most amazing kids on the planet for holding it together the entire time with nary a tear, both of whom were compensated handsomely with organic jelly beans and cotton candy from Whole Foods, both of which are absolutely terrible by the way. Still, if it looks luck a duck and your plane is doing a nosedive (like a duck), well then...
Now, I'm officially in my second trimester and enjoying every second of my Violet Beaugarde like expansion. My energy is top notch and I'm optimistic I'll be able to walk a thousand miles around New York City with nary a cramp or complaint. High five, self. Put 'er there.
...THIS is the trimester dreams were made of. Fade in on second act.
