My Apologies To The Entire 43016 Zip Code

Danger Baby screaming at the top of her lungs at 4:30 in the morning because she’s still on Irish time and thinks it’s 9:30am? Oh our neighbors on this hotel floor must LOOOOOOOVE us!

What do you mean it's only 4:30am?

The Pilgrims Didn’t Land in Galway

We are flying home for the Thanksgiving holiday soon because being an exclusively American holiday, they don’t seem to celebrate it here in Ireland.

Today when I picked up Princess Crazy Preschooler and Danger Baby from daycare, I asked them if they wanted to go home for Thanksgiving or to the Grand Canyon.

Princess Crazy Preschooler yelled “Yes! The Grand Canyon!”

I asked her if she knew where the Grand Canyon was and she said, “it’s at home.”

Olé, Olé, Olé!

I’m off to the pub (the beautiful Mount Oval Bar) in a bit with the neighborhood boys to watch Ireland play Estonia in the Euro 2012 playoffs. I have no idea what sport they’ll be playing because no one told me. I was so excited to be invited I didn’t bother to ask.

Is it rugby? Soccer? Quidditch? Who cares, I’m there!

Crazy is the New Calm

Last night trying to get Princess Crazy Preschooler to calm down and settle in for bed was taking a lot longer than usual.

When she finally did start to settle down Mommy declared “She’s starting to calm down now”, to which Princess Crazy Preschooler jumped up, started dancing while shouting “HOORAY! I’m calming down!”


I'm almost calm now
