The Dinner Dance

by bkhoury on July 27, 2011

My 1 ½ year old has recently discovered FREEDOM when sitting down to eat a meal. He has started climbing down from his chair, taking a bite of food, doing a dance, and climbing back up into his chair making sure he somehow rubs his hands or face all over my clothes before beginning the process again.

In-Flight Chaos

by bkhoury on July 14, 2011

We thought we were being clever. We booked ourselves on the 6:55 am flight direct to Minneapolis. Two hours and twenty minutes. Piece of cake. We would wake the boys, bring bananas to fill them up on the car ride to the airport, and they would be back asleep upon take-off. Not quite so fast perky parents. First we got cocky and underestimated the time required to park the car, check and pay for luggage, and get two kids, a dog (yes the dog), a double stroller and ourselves through security. By the time we reached the gate, the plane was boarding. We again thought we were being smart by pre-boarding the plane so as to not disturb anyone – and to get away from the stares at our very own three-ring circus. I didn’t realize how LONG boarding takes! 20 minutes later Will and Hunter started jumping on the seats and I realized that was the first indication of trouble with a capital T. Read More

Restaurant Week Rebellion

by bkhoury on July 07, 2011

For this trip to the Grandparent’s house I decided not to be my usual high maintenance mother, insisting on keeping our set schedules and cooking healthy meals. Instead, I gave the reigns to the Grandparents and let them have the week to spoil their only two grandkids as much as possible. This included a week-long extravaganza of activities, eating out every day and treats galore. After a breakdown (or two), the ambitious grandparents did see the value of afternoon naps for the boys. So we would get up in the morning and eat breakfast then be out the door to start the day’s planned activity. By 11:30 the boys would be on the brink and we would grab some food with the echo “I want mac and cheese!” always present if at a restaurant or at the pool we would hear “I want chips!”. We would rush home and put the junk-food filled boys to bed for naps.
