A SLO Start
Note to self–
Do not forget the following items next year:
1. Pack & Play (whoops!!)
2. Baby monitor
3. Poppyseed’s blue blankie
4. Poppyseed’s menagerie of stuffed animals
5. Water Bottles for the car
On the up side —
It was a really smart idea to bring blankets. The hotel didn’t have one for the crib and Peach was a little cold. And individual journals for the big kids was a stoke of genuis! It is interesting to see what is making an impression on them.
We drove as far as San Luis Obispo. It took longer than anticipated. Quite likely due to an unscheduled squabble stop. “A squabble stop?” you may wonder. Somewhere north of Thousand Oaks there was a yelp from the way back. Beernut was really tired and had put down his head on Poppyseed’s toy box. And she was less than gracious.
I have a no fighting rule in the car. I just can’t concentrate on the road with two screaming kids in the back. So we pulled over so that I could reaarange the seating.
With a bathroom stop in Summerland and then a dinner stop in Santa Maria, we rolled into SLO after 8:00pm. Too late for the kids’ program. Too late for the manager’s reception. And too late for the pool.
Tomorrow IS another day!
