Travel Time

Or, Things to Remember to Not Forget Next Time, or Why Traveling with a Toddler Redefines the Word “Trip”

1. Camera, for that 18th picture of the TT playing with the baby goat or thinking about playing with the baby goat or thinking about playing in the baby goat’s water trough that has no wine in it

2. Witch hazel, to remedy the next skin burn I get from the strap of the husband’s bag sliding down my arm because i thot i could carry everything all at once and save myself a trip but really what does he have in there because it’s not the wine???

3. WD-40, for squeaky doors that cause mama to need a glass of wine to deal with the irritation and desperate hopes that they won’t waken the TT

4. Tape, for the curtains in the bedroom that never totally block the light out because there are gaps between them and the walls so the TT thinks he needs to get down and go play with more baby goats when in reality he needs to be falling alseep so mama can go watch mindless TV while drinking wine read something completely edifying and probably spiritually fulfilling as well because she is just that kind of a well-rounded individual

5. Corner protectors, for those sharp corners that are on every single piece of hotel furniture right at TT eye level and that cause mama to need a glass of wine after all those near-misses

6. Wine, self-explanatory

    Is there such a thing as cyber wine? If so, I am sending you some. And you can send me cheese. Or something.
