Are we there yet? Sort of. We've made it to today's destination, the Hampton Inn just off I-77 somewhere in Ohio. It's cold and it's cloudy and we are remembering why we love Charlotte so much.
I'm fairly certain Annalyse will get sick any day now thanks to a darling but way too friendly little five-year old that pummeled Annalyse with a hug and kiss in two seconds time. There was nothing I could do to stop it. I turned around and this blonde-haired darling flew off the end of a slide and planted a big one right on Annalyse's cheek. The Mom of the blonde-haired darling thought this was all fun and cute. I didn't, but still managed to smile politely. I think.
Grady Lee hardly made a peep all day. He was engrossed in his Leapster and sat quiet listening to stories on CD. And, I've really got to get this on video: he sings his little heart out right along with Chris Tomlin! I know it's considered a joyful noise and all, but to the random person that might hear him sometime I'm sure they'd think it was just noise.
Annalyse, however, had an agenda all her own. Tears: check. Wails: check. Screams: check. Tantrums: check. Consume an entire container of Gerber Puffs: check. Dirty her diaper soon after getting on the road after lunch: check.
