So London is a go. I spend an obnoxious amount on a plane ticket because DH didn't get the okay until Monday so we got the ticket under 2 weeks before the trip. His meeting is not downtown like we were hoping so we will probably rent a car. The up side to that is we will get to see more than if we were in the city for a whole week. Hopefully I figure out the driving part quickly so I can take off on my own for the 2 days he is working. He wants to see Stonehenge. We haven't decided if we go to Dover or someplace else one day. I think I have our city activities and hotel picked. Relaxing is not how I would define this trip but it should be fun and I'm glad we are getting the chance to go. The hard part is we get back on a Saturday night, then DH has to be in NY/NJ for a few days, then that Saturday we are headed back out of town for spring break. I'm not sure when I'm going to sleep during those 3 weeks.

Congrats on another girl! I hope the joint issue turns out to be nothing. So does that mean another u/s in 10 weeks?

And I would not be very happy with the lack of car seat use also.

D and I aren't there yet, but once A was allowed to do something there was no going back. The first time she didn't have to sit in the front of the cart, she never did it again. So I would expect it to be that way with D. That being said, I'm pretty sure your nanny just opened a door that I hope won't be too hard to close. I worry about it with D especially since DH's family says that they potty train their boys outside with trees. Um...that's not pt, that's tree training, or in B's case, wall training. I would shut that down real quick. And that's just another reason why MIL doesn't get to stay with my kids while I'm gone.

Yeah that is a much better deal, Karen...being able to use the tix over the course of several months. I think what I'm going to do is reserve a weekend for my single friend, and rope her into doing it with me. Is it sad that I don't want to do that sh*t with DH? He just hates stuff like that and would make it miserable for all of us. He likes the zoo...but I just don't even want him to come to Disney with us because I'd be dealing with his attitude and crazy kids...way too much going on there.

I'll be in Punta Gorda...half hour north of Fort Myers, about halfway up the Gulf Coast. I'm excited because I'll see one of my good friends from High School whom I haven't seen since college!!! Plus we haven't been to my dad's house for 3 years, probably almost to the day. It was just easier and cheaper to have him come to us, since he is retired. It was important to them that we visit though.
