Namaste from India


Okay, maybe not really from India. But we can pretend, right?

Yesterday reality got to be a bit too much for the Loving family. There was too much stress from a number of different directions and we decided to take a break.

So, we got a hotel room here in the city and told the girls we were on a pretend trip to India. We ate Indian food, wore bindis, swam in the Indian Ocean (hotel pool), and watched for elephants outside the window. We met people from India and talked about what people do in India.

It was relaxing for both the girls and us. It was a much needed break from reality. As I type this we're packing up to leave India and return home to the real world. But, we all feel a bit more refreshed even if the trip was totally make-believe...

oh, and you'll forgive me if I put Total Truth Tuesday off for this week won't you? Honestly, yesterday had enough yucky truth for me and I just don't know that I have it in me to post my truth for this week. I promise I'll bring it back next week with a really good one!

I'm trying to mentally soak in all the wonderful things you with your girls so that I can be a Cool Mom too. :)

Thanks for the sweet compliment! Though I must say I think our days sound much cooler on the blog than they feel sometimes! I know you are going to be a super cool mom and I can't wait to hear all your fun stories! 3 days until you can buy pink or blue, right?

thats awesome guys! reminds me as a kid, my parents would say we are going on "vacation" they would pack us up. drive around in circles for 2-3 hours and end up at the hotel down the road from our house. of course all five of us thought we were years away from home! then we got AC, Cable TV and a pool! how awesome was that! haha
