We are. We are supposed to go to Texas for the holiday weekend. Months and months ago we had gotten together with my dad's girlfriend and bought Dixie Chicks tickets, so we have a concert to go to on Sunday night. First concert my husband and i will have ever gone to together. Usually one of us takes a friend while the other stays home with the kiddo. Pretty sad, uh?? lol He went to Crosby Stills and Nash by himself, and i went to James Taylor by myself. Would have been better if we could go together. But trusting someone with Catie is just sooo hard.
We plan on flying out on thursday night, friday i think we will have with the inlaws, saturday with my mom, and then sunday with my dad and monday flying back.
Any ideas on how to keep a child trasitioning well?? At my moms things will be pretty low key. Just some swimming and a cook out. A few of my moms friends will be there.
But i have always had a rough time at the inlaws. They have a ton of kids, and a ton of adults. And so far Catie is the youngest, but like 6 years. She is going to want to follow the big kids around, and they havent really ever been around her much. (i dont really get along with my in laws, and i dont trust Catie with them alone. So Catie usually sees them in small groups and doses). With Catie being so easy to get away, and run out in streets, and so forth, how can i keep my sanity and keep her focused?? They usually set up the food and barbque and stuff in the drive way, so my MILs back yard isnt fenced off. So i am constantly chasing Catie around. (this is also most of the family who thinks i am just anal and nothing is wrong with Catie. My MIL finally heard about the pool incident, so maybe they will all back off).
Any ideas any one?
