All Packed

Our plane leaves at 7:50 in the morning which means we have to get up freaky-butt early to make it to the airport, park, check-in, etc.  Luckily we only live 15 minutes from the airport and it's a direct flight!

Tonight I finished packing and I noticed something very interesting has happened.  Paisley has taken over.  She and I share a suitcase and gradually, my stuff is becoming less present.  My carry-on has really been hijacked.  It used to consist of a neck pillow, light blanket, book or magazine, and lip gloss. 

Now, it has diapers, wipes, snacks of various varieties, and toys.  It's also now an adorable paisley-print (of course) rolling suitcase with her name on it.  And then there is a tiny pocket in the front where I shove our passports, boarding documents, hotel confirmation, etc.  Let's keep our priorities straight!


  1. Isn't that a metaphor for our lives? Can you even remember the "Stuff you carried around" before Paisley joined your family? It all seems so small and inconsequential now. Our hearts, minds and worlds (and suitcases:)) have been taken over by these little beings! And thank God for that!

    Have a wonderful trip - and no more getting sick!
