I got my hair cut! I like it, I do. But now I want it even shorter. Like Charlize Theron's hair - what do you think? I'll tell you what else I like . . . this 1970s wood and goldtone necklace. I plan to wear it with everything this summer.
In other news, Severen and I made it to Kansas City safe and sound. We shared snacks and a nice packed lunch along the way - cheddar and avocado sandwiches!. We had a great time at the O'Hare airport during our layover, playing in the Chicago Children's Museum play area, looking for the Vosges kiosk (we found it), and watching all of the activity out on the tarmac. "Truck" was a word that we used a lot yesterday! The second flight was challenging but we were not in tears and so I truly, truly can't complain. Severen was quite cheerful the entire day, actually. And when we arrived at our friends' house in the evening he was deliriously happy, which made it all worthwhile.
Important lesson #1 about traveling alone with a kiddo: If you appear to be losing control of your life, people will come to your rescue to save you from total embarrassment. They will. Like when I tried to pick up a dozen spilled crayons in the aisle of our aircraft while breast feeding a 30# boy doing lapnastics (i.e. gymnastics in my lap). Not graceful, people. Also, to the man sitting across the aisle from us: I am sincerely sorry that you saw my Soggy Mom Nipples every time you looked our direction.
