OK, we’ve packed up the two cameras–video and still–and all the batteries that go with them. We’ve loaded up the iPod with all of 3B’s favorite music (including his new fave, Play That Funky Music, White Boy–apropos for our boy…they don’t come any whiter than him), all the videos of 3B, plus VB’s favorite video, plus two episodes of Electric Company, including one featuring the letter “m,” which, along with “s” and “o” is one of 3B’s favorites; he recognizes all of them pretty consistently and makes each of their sounds, although, under pressure, he might resort to calling any letter “m.” It is his favorite, after all.
We’ve arranged for Barky to go to his country home, chez Liberal Banana, where he’ll get to hang out with her new pup in their yard.
We even remembered to pack clothes and pajamas for all three of us, including a new holiday outfit for 3B, although we still have a chance to forget our toothbrushes. However, if we forget 3B’s toothbrush, this would be a long trip indeed.
So, internet, what are we forgetting–other than sleep and the fact that we’re crazy for flying across the country with a toddler?
