We left Guangzhou with a patch behind Asher’s ear. And phenergan in my backpack.
And high hopes for a vomit-free travel day.
No shoes had been kicked off in frustration,
Or hair clip pulled out in aggravation,
Or cookies tossed in nauseation. I know it’s not a word. But it should be.
One hair clip: gone
One pair shoes and one pair socks: missing in action
Three ‘clean bags’: filled
One shirt and one pair pants: irretrievably puke-y
One jacket: covered with melted chocolate ice cream
One mother: wo’ out
It was a tough trip. With some horrific moments.
But God had some serious mercy on me. Vivi was a fantastic little traveler. And slept a good portion of the flight.
Asher’s was similar.
But I was pumped.
We made our way through the Newark airport. And my sweet friend Dita and her darlings were there to greet us.
I had warned her about the probability of sweat and stink.
And I was glad I had.
She gave some lovely gifts to my kiddos.
And she gave some delicious handmade chocolate to me.
God bless her.
Poor dude. The good news was that no more baggies were needed.
And blessedly, the closer we got to Boston, the better he felt.
I get more and more crazy about this kid every day.
One car ride left between us and home.
The kids were all smiles.
“It wasn’t that bad, ya think?”
