Becky, my Mom and I are here for a girls weekend trip. We miss Leah who is thousands of miles away in the arctic circle. Jordan was here for work so I drove down with the kids too and they joined for <24 hours of the trip too. I told the kids my friends from college were visiting so they were literally in shock when they saw Aunt Becky and Grandma in our hotel lobby.
Fun Aunt Becky taught Elliott an add-on to paper rock scissors. Bulldozer and bitterly too.
Proud to be raising two feminists – as jordan says, Ournoldest is equally defiant.
We tried to explain 9-11 in kids terms. They asked a lot of good questions. Hard to share that part of our nations history with them.
Sat am included a quick trip to the plaza hotel and Central Park.
Props to Mom and Becky for great taglines here:
“Biking to school, just like the good ol’ days” (in front of Columbia Univ instead of Mac Arthur Elementary!)
We also went to a Times Square around 10pm. What a site. Now we are off to explore Midtown and hopefully go to mass. I appreciate that Becky and Mom took two flights to be here, that Becky left her three adorable kids and that Rob watched her three adorable kids!
