It's been a while since I last posted & so much has happened! I'll just pick up with the present time & talk about our fourth maybe this weekend. Where to start? I picked up a map to journal all about our trip & I'd like to frame it & continue to map out any other road trips we attempt...but we will see! We left our hometown around 8:30 am Tuesday morning heading out on our 30 hour road trip. Yeah. 30 hours. With a toddler, pregnant girl, & 50+lbs of Golden Doodle. We are crazy people.
As I sat him down inside the stall, I looked down in terror as I realized the poop had coated my entire arm (watch included). I somehow used my go go gadget arm to try & one hand a zipper to get the wipes out of the bag all why Cam continued his defense that he "didn't poop." After I cleaned my arm the best I could, I decided it was time to tackle Cam. I ended up having to strip him down to his new diaper & carry him out of the bathroom to get a new change of clothes. Of course, I walked out to find a line of people staring at me with a half nude toddler & my shirt pushed up over my whale of a baby bump. I guess I can be thankful for that, because as I realized & scrambled to get it down, Cade pointed out I had poop all over my shirt...
At one point during the repetitive cycle of "I not poop, mommy!" I couldn't help but breakdown in laughter & say, "Cam! YES, YOU DID! Look!" He grinned & pointed his finger at the diaper bag, "Look mommy! I poop on mommy's bag!" Ahhhh, confession at it's finest.
We are currently cruising down the exciting interstates of Iowa (while Ony creeps behind my head & Cam snoozes) with a goal of ending up in South Dakota tonight. My heart hurts a lot thinking about our goodbyes Monday night but I know they are only temporary & that God will take care of us & bring us all back together soon. In fact, one day I have a feeling we will look back on this time & be able to laugh at our memories of this time. The adventure continues...until then,
