Aimee started a game the other day when we went shopping for some new luggage. She was really entertained and the other kids quickly caught onto the fun. She has decided that while we are traveling she is going to keep a daily log of how many people stop me to make random, often rude, mostly slightly amusing comments about the size of our family. We are who we are and we enjoy being who we are. I am sure if I thought ahead a little about what people might think of what we are doing before I did certain things it might help to limit comments but hind sight is always 20/20. We found out that we are allowed 27 suitcases onto our flight over the to the Netherlands. Immediately visions of fun color coordinating suitcases filled my mind so I took all the kids to Macy’s that morning for a luggage sale that was happening. So began the game…. First the lady at the door going into the store, then the 3 separate ladies on the way to the escalator all to be topped off by the lady who watched me load my 34lb daughter(who shall remain nameless) into a rolling suitcase to see how easily the kids could maneuver a full suitcase. Of course this was practical but also very amusing to us I mean really who has time to shop for luggage and then go home to stuff it full and then wheel it around the house only to find you don’t like it and have to return it. So I went for the more time efficient route and just used my most reliable resources,my children. Needless to say the lady at the register could not hold back her opinion which just completed Aimee’s game for the morning nicely. Like I said hind sight is 20/20 next time I would have loaded in 2 kids.
