@JJT sucked me in again with his fabulous hotwire deal blog and this time it’s to the Yacht Club in a Water View room at about 60% off Water View room prices! This is cheaper than a moderate price!
I have not taken a trip with DS17 alone since he was 8. That time we drove to California and went to Legoland and climbed a mountain outside of Pasadena somewhere. He played a ton of carnival games and won a couple of huge stuffed animals; one of which he gave his sister and we still have (the pink bear). He hiked his first 15 mile hike in one day up and down that mountain outside of Pasadena. He was tired and and had to really push to finish; it was hard for him. Later, his teacher told me he was retelling his story and was so proud of himself. To see him realize he did a big thing and was capable of hard things was a really happy parenting moment. Just look at how cute and young he was (and how young and thin I was LOL)
After work today we’re catching the late night flight on SWA for our last chance at a mother/son trip before he turns into an adult and it’s been a decade since he climbed that mountain. I am starting to cry looking at these photos. In the day to day it’s amazing how an almost decade can fly right by and your little boy is driving you around. Major emotions happening…gonna have to stop typing for now.
