Well, we knew we were moving already (this is just a temp stop during the middle of our real, big move), but I thought I had 3-4 weeks left here. Suddenly I've got to be ready to drive across country in 13 days. And DH won't be any help at all until the last 2 days since he'll still be flying!
You have another move after this one?! I thought this one was the big one and then you were done for awhile. Yikes woman!
Erin, you should know these things. j/k. We're just in WF, TX for training. Then it's to NC for 9 months of training. And then we don't know after that. As of right now we're going to ask to stay in NC, but we could end up in England or Idaho instead. *sigh*
C'mon 9 months is a super long time. If all goes exactly as DH hopes we could be there for a total of 7 years. But we're a long way off from knowing if that'll ever happen. In the military that's called homesteading. It's almost unheard of. At this point I'd be happy to stay in one place that isn't on the border of Mexico for longer than 18 months.
Wore DD a lot this afternoon--we had more time than usual, so we stopped by the zoo for 45 minutes before they closed, and then went to the playground. By the time I was hiking back to the car with her, she had started biting the back neckline of my shirt, and me with it! Geez...hope THAT doesn't become a "thing".
Otherwise it was great. I think my favorite part of BW when out and about with a toddler is being able to have NOTHING to push/carry/pull/watch other than the baby. I keep one diaper and a ziplock of wipes in the Ergo pocket, and threw my zoo membership card, car key, and phone in with it. And GO!
I tried to wear Aiden in a ring sling for snuggles and nursing earlier, but he fought me. Once down he wanted to go back up of course. Repeat this about 500 times and you have our day. I threw him on my back while cooking dinner for one final ride in my SV B'roo that I'm selling.
This evening DH took Aiden to Home Depot with him (needed stuff to rig his car window up - in DH's words the car is "ghetto nice"). DH asked for me to hand him HIS Ergo(!) right before he walked out the door "because that's so much easier than a stroller."
And yes, my husband's training has meant a lot of moving.

I totally burst into laughter ruining the sweet moment cause it really is out of character for DH. He doesn't mind wearing, but putting DS on his back by himself in a parking lot makes him nervous still (my stories haven't helped, which reminds me that I have a new one to add). Even funnier is that our BOB stroller stays in the back of my car 24/7, or else I'd totally forget to bring it to Stroller Strides.
I finally remembered to get my ring sling out and see how DD reacted to it, to judge using it for our traveling back to the States. I wore her just to one store, but she was quite happy in there the whole time, didn't try to get out, etc. Only thing was, we went to a cafe afterward, and I was having some really weird pains through my left side, which is the side I was carrying her on. Don't know if it was ligament pains brought on by the carry or what... in any case, the ring sling will make it easier for us in the airport, and to sleep on the plane and stuff, so I'm pretty sure it's what I'll use. It worked well today (minus the pain!)!
